Not All Heat Tape Is The Same…
Big-box home improvement stores – and some gutter companies – sell an inexpensive “residential” type of heat tape which, frankly, doesn’t do a good job of standing up to the challenges a Colorado home typically faces.
The cheaper heat tape is easily damaged or nicked – birds can wreck it – squirrels even chew on it!
And once it’s damaged, cheap heat tape must be completely replaced, leaving you with unnecessary hassle and expense.
That’s why Conifer Gutter Service insists on heavy-duty commercial-grade heat tape. It costs a bit more up-front, but its advantages make it the better-value choice in the long term.
Animals have a much harder time damaging the heavy-duty heat tape, whether it’s woodpeckers investigating it, or chipmunks racing up your downspouts to elude your dog!
And, unlike the cheap cable, the commercial-grade heat tape can be spliced onto – if it does become nicked or broken, we can simply remove the damaged section and splice it back together, without replacing the entire cable.
… And Not Every Home Needs It
With four decades of experience taking care of home owners in Denver and Colorado, the pros at Conifer Gutter Service have seen just about every situation you can imagine.
We’ve found that nearly a third of home owners who’ve experienced problems with ice dams or other ice-accumulation woes simply have a poorly-designed or badly-installed gutter system… and once we slope the system to drain properly, the ice problem “melts away.”
And not all homes that could benefit from heat tape need it throughout their entire gutter system. With the commercial-grade, splice-able cable we use, we can easily install heat tape to a small portion of your gutter system, and see if that’s all it takes to solve the problem.
And if more heat tape is needed, we can readily add more to the existing system.
Our objective is to do a thorough, professional assessment to determine what you really need… not just to sell you the maximum amount of heat tape.
