How big of a area will one puck de-ice?

Ice on my roof eaves is about 4” thick
Asked by: Dave
Seems like about a foot square. Depends on amount of ice and temperature. We had about 4-inch-thick ice and it was cold, and each puck cleared about a foot square; some more, some less. Be sure to clear as much snow as possible first since snow cuts down effectiveness.

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.

Use it before it starts to build and it will leave open runways to melt and run down into gutters. You will need to get a few into the gutters as well, especially near downspout. That part is a little tricky, you need a good arm and aim.

It likes to roll down the roof when you toss it up which is not a big deal but the ones that I had seemed to melt only the bottom of the ice and in a very small area. The ice remained pretty much intact.

The container is a little difficult to get into, but with a kid and a dog, that's kind of what I wanted/expected. We have a Cape Cod style home and anyone with one of those, knows that ice dam's are bound to happen. Unfortunately, part of our roof (on the North side) is shaded from a dormer that was added and is on the wayward side of the prevailing winter winds. In short, a recipe for disaster since the North side doesn't get any benefit of sunlight to expedite melting. After the first leak, which miraculously happened directly over our kitchen sink, I went and purchased a roof rake to clear the snow and help mitigate ice dams. Sometimes that is not enough and the last blizzard that ripped through Buffalo, NY put about a foot and a half of snow on the North side of the roof. The icicles were about 7-8ft long after only 8 hours! I was always skeptical of this product and the damage it would do, but boy did it work and did it work FAST! (with no visible damage yet [2 weeks later]) I would estimate it took 24-36 hours for an ice dam about 8 inches thick and 12 inches wide to melt down enough that it was barely visible over the gutter. I highly recommend using a roof rake to clear the snow off BEFORE tossing up the roof melt. This will ensure you get the quickest results. (and you won't pull the pucks off the roof while trying to rake the snow off if doing it AFTER you toss them.) If you toss it into a drift that's 1-2 foot deep, it will take longer and require many more applications. I used about 1/3 of the bucket on 2 ice dams, so one bucket should cover you for the season. The 'pucks' are easy enough to toss from the ground. Inevitably, some will roll off and you'll have to try again. I found the 'frisbee' technique to be most effective at getting them to land flat, instead of on their sides, causing them to roll. This is a minuscule inconvenience to pay compared to the thou$ands in repair bills for water damage to the interior of your home. It's also better than having to climb a 20 ft. ladder in 32-36 degree weather, during a freezing rain downpour, with an ice dam the size of a grown man in my face, trying to plug the leak with expanding foam spray. (which DID work, by the way, just be careful of overspray and go out the next day to cut off any that has expanded through the gaps in your siding.) As with any product, FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS! You're not all-knowing; it's not a shot at your pride; it's merely a fact. If you haven't used it before, then you'll need some instruction on use and precautions. (My wife hates that I'm the 'instructions' guy... ha!) Best of luck and stay warm! Hopefully, you won't have any sleepless nights worrying about the ice dam on your roof.

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.

Good luck throwing it up if you have ice since they are small and will slide off. We put some in netting and then tossed the bundle up around the fireplace. Be careful handling it. It chaps hands and makes gloves very stiff, so you will need to discard gloves or wash.

Really didn’t do much for the ice/snow dam on my roof. Better off getting an ecco-friendly bag of ice melt pellets and throwing them up on your roof.

Roof melt tablets melted the ice dam by my stove vent within three minutes. Kept the ice dam from becoming a problem. I would highly recommend this product to prevent ice dam problems.

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.
