Questions & Answers

Can this be used on metal roofs without damage?

Asked by: Jollyroger123
Short answer, Yes. Long answer, it really depends on the condition of your roof and what you want the Roofmelt to do. If you have a marginal roof that is very corroded, installed incorrectly or poorly design, then you may have problems where this product contacts already corroded metal, or due to design/construction issues is allowed to leak under the metal sheathing. Also, Roofmelt is designed to melt ICE on your roof. If you want to use it to melt snow off of a shallow pitched roof, then this is NOT the way to do it. Get a roof rake. Finally, why on earth do you have ANY snow or ice buildup on your metal roof? The whole point of using metal roofing is to facilitate minimal snow/ice buildup. You have severe design issues with your roof that must be addressed.

Can it be used in a gutter? Or is there a better solution for thick ice build up in gutters. Thank you
Asked by: Denise
Yes put about 4 or 5 in a stocking and put it up there. It will melt it nicely. I use it on the valley of my house, the gutter and ice build up on the back roof.

I live in NY and go to florida each winter, if I put them up in Nov. do they last all winter

Asked by: trike
No these would not last for that long and that's because as they are melting the ice, they are dissolving as well

I have a older mobile home with a thin metal roof which has damned up bad and water is leaking in. Can I put these on a metal (tin) roof?
Asked by: Dave
Yes, it is ok to use this on mobile home roofing. You will still need to address wherever the water is entering once the ice is gone. To that end, you may want to consider owning a roof shovel to pull down the heavy snow before it becomes a problem.

Ice Melt is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 239.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from These work great, if you can put a hockey puck on your roof. These pucks work great, but you have to use them sensibly. Get up on a ladder and set them on the roof, or toss them up like a mini frizbee so they land flat side on the roof, or toss them up into fresh snow so they won't slide. I've been using them for several seasons, and as long as I remember to get them on the roof, I have no ice dam problems at all. The occasional toss comes flying off the roof, but if one breaks in half i toss it back up, or crush it on the sidewalk. At the end of a bucket, take the broken bits, and pour them into a doubled up old sock or panty hose and set it on the worst valley on your roof.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big help! Have been using this product on the shadier edges of my roof that accumulate more snow and ice for the past couple of years, (especially where ice dams form)...have had a real problem some years with that. I don't have a nearby electrical outlet to install one of those warming cables, so roof melt, along with a roof rake (which I highly recommend if you don't have one), have been a great help in keeping things flowing on those shadier parts of my roof. If you can use the roof rake to get at least the bottom several feet of your roof free of snow, that will really help when the sun hits, and it will get things flowing, melting and moving.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice idea, poorly implemented Like most things these days, this was a nice idea poorly implemented. In theory, it sounds great, in reality. Not so much. The biggest problem is, getting it in the right place on your roof. If you have a low enough roof, you can reach up, or stand on something to get it into position, then it works pretty well. Of course, if you can reach it, there are other cheaper ways of getting at the ice. For higher roofs, it's a balancing act. Most of the ones I threw up there either missed, or else rolled back down my roof and shattered, wasting the tablets. At what they charge for these things, that ain't cheap. Another issue is I wish they came in a container that I didn't need to use a crowbar to open

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good idea. Works well. Poor implementation. The good news is that it does what it is supposed to do. Placing it in strategic places will break up the ice allowing the runoff to not back up onto the roof. The bad news is trying to get them to stay on the roof. Throwing them, as suggested, is haphazard and most of the time they end up rolling off of the roof. I finally took a roof rake, rigged a type of scoop on the end with some cardboard and tape, and PLACED the tablets on the roof where I wanted them. Even then, some would roll off and had to be redone. If you have the patience, they are worth having. They are also good for places where you can't scrape or have any roof coils.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save your money A few people recommended I try these tablets to break up some of the ice covering the roof of the back of my home that doesn't get sun. After roof raking, it became a sheet of ice. Because of that, these slide right off, hit the ground and break - useless. What tablets I was able to get onto the roof in the snow drifts, didn't melt at all. I realize it's not supposed to completely melt every square inch of ice, but it didn't do anything. At almost $20 a bucket, save the money and check whether or not your attic is adequately/properly insulated. That's the problem behind my ice dams. I thought this product would help me in avoiding damage until I can re-insulate. The product was completely useless to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked exactly as described We had a terrible winter, with significant ice dams on our new home. These melted the ice dam from below, allowing water to drain off the roof. I ordered extra to have on hand for the future. The picture below is the ice dam that fell off my roof after melting from below. The roof melt tabs melt through the ice, to the roof and then drains under the ice instead of backing up into the attic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This saved our house We where lucky enough to have Home Depot selling it for the regular retail with free shipping. A good amount of sellers prices doubled or almost trippled during the bad snow here in New England. The product does work. ( we did roof rake as well) We had part of an ice dam fall off our roof and we were able to see the water channels the tablets created. My only compaint is they are hard to get on roof. (we have 3 floors) The best way I have found is an under hand toss. Just aim away from windows they could break them. I think if we were able to get them up there right after the storm the results would have been better. I ended up buy 3 more totes for next year!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Box Gutter Protection from Ice Purchased this product after we sustained tremendous interior damage from a ice dam within the box gutter in December, well we had twice the amount of ice and snow in Jan and Feb, and NO ice dams since using this. Very each to use - they are slightly smaller than hockey pucks and have a good weight to them. Very easy to lobe them up to the 3rd story roof into the ridge and box gutter. Wish I did this in December!! Oh and very roof friendly, no residue or salt stains which we were concerned since the roof is only 3 years old!
