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 4 out of 5 by from Melts through ice dams, doesn't remove them The roofmelt pucks melt through ice until they reach the roof. They then sit there and presumably release salt which runs downstream, eventually melting through so water can flow off your roof. However, an ice dam with a 3-inch vertical hole in it can still stick very tightly to your roof. Once the puck has sunk into the snow or ice, you can't see what it's doing, so it's very hard to know if you're making a difference. After our epic Boston snowfall, I put a lot of energy and a lot of pucks into getting the bottom 3 feet of my roof clear of ice, and water was still leaking into our house. Only then did I toss some pucks farther uphill, into the ice I couldn't reach, and then the leak stopped. The ice is still there. I think the roofmelt did the trick, but I can't be sure, and I won't know for sure when I'll need to throw some more in the same area. In short, this product melts ice, but it's hard to know how to use it, because you can't see it doing its job.

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 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 Great product and Fun to use The ice melt works great on the roof. It melted the snow and ran down the gutters. then the solution opened the downspouts. Also it was quite fun to walk around the house and trow the pellets up on the roof. I felt like a kid.

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 5 out of 5 by from Great Ice dam removal Pro's: Removed our ice dams overnight - Thank-you Con's: just which we could get it in a larger bucket for the same money!

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 4 out of 5 by from Good Product as advetized Had used them before about two years ago...... Worked as advertised..... I use a 16Ft extension pole, was for painting ceiling, with a measuring cup attached to the end..... The way I can drop the " pick " right where I want it, while being on the ground.... I try and drop them a few inches above the ice dams.... Works well for me.......
