When the winter weather sets in, Heater Cap is a must-have addition to your home! Roof ice and snow buildup can cause damaging ice dams, which are clusters of ice that lead to standing meltwater trapped on your roof that leaks into your home. Our uniquely designed Heater Cap system melts ice dams before they can cause damage, giving you peace of mind even during the harshest of winters.

Why Protect Against Ice Dams on Your Roof?

Ice dams are a perfectly avoidable threat to your home that surface whenever snow and ice accumulates on your roof. Left uninterrupted, ice dams can cause major damage to your home’s structural integrity and livability, as well as your gutter system and walkways. Here are all the risks you can permanently avoid with Heater Cap:

  • Ice can drag down your gutters with its sheer weight
  • Ice pulls up roofing shingles, allowing water to leak through the roof as the ice melts
  • Ice redirects water and traps in on the roof, causing internal mold when leaks start
  • Ice dams can literally dam up your gutters and overflow them, causing your exterior soffit and fascia to rot

How to Protect Against Ice Dams

Our Heater Cap system is installed directly on your existing gutters and roof, which offers a stylish look that does not distract from the curb appeal of your home. The Heater Cap system warms your gutters, gutter protection, and downspouts with a gentle and continuous heat, right where ice would form to cause ice dams. When our patented metal disbursement plate is hardwired to your home, you can simply kick back and relax – as your home is fully protected from ice dams and the expensive damage they can cause by our state-of-the-art technology!

How to Install Ice Dam Protection

Our ice dam protection solution is designed to be seamlessly paired with your existing Gutter Cap. Installation is a quick project and will take less than a day, but it does require an expert due to the exterior wiring. Installation is included with all Heater Cap systems, so you pay no extra for the peace of mind that comes with expert installation. Our team of gutter experts will take care of all the tricky ladder work and wiring that comes with installing ice dam protection!

To install the ice dam protection system, we attach our patented metal heat disbursement to the top of your gutter protection system with weatherized hardware, no tape or adhesive like other systems on the market! The Heater Cap is stylish and low-profile, being scarcely noticeable with no negative impact to your home’s curb appeal. Our team installs a heavy-duty heating cable to your home electrical system. From there, we add a user-friendly switch so that you can activate the system as needed. That’s all there is to it, one quick installation project and you are free from ice dams and dangerously icy walkways!

Ready to protect your home from ice dams with the industry’s best ice dam prevention? That’s great, we look forward to helping you! Our team is standing by to protect your home with Heater Cap, an affordable and effective solution to ice dams, trusted by thousands of homeowners.

Great product!  Gutter Caps do what they are supposed to do…keep leaves and debris out of the gutters!  I’ve had this system on my home for 12 years and couldn’t be happier.


Brian, Davenport IA

I’m glad I found them – they do great work, completed my project in a single day, and my entire experience from start to finish was excellent. The workmanship of the installation is really first class from end-to-end and I didn’t have to supervise a single thing, and there was nothing I’d change


Neil, Naperville IL

A really good product from a company who began gutter protection over 20 years ago. They have been innovators in the business for years.
