Heated Standing Seam Roof Ice Melt System

Summit’s Patented Heated Standing Seam is the first and only bona-fide metal roofing system designed to minimize ice dams and icicles across roof eaves where ice formations begin.

Metal roofing along roof eave edges has become very fashionable, especially among upper-end residential and commercial projects. The intended purpose of using metal edging is to help prevent damage due to ice formations, and as an architectural statement for contemporary design.

Unfortunately, typical metal edging creates an entirely new set of problems. Shingle roofing still gets torn off, often above the wall line where it causes leaks. Ice dams form and dangerous masses of ice fall off the roof unpredictably. And worse, ice dam leaks occur at the busy transition between the metal edging and the primary roofing materials. More information on this is discussed here.

Summit’s history includes the manufacturing and installation of millions of feet of metal roofing in snow country. Add to that our expertise in efficient heat transfer, and you can be sure the Heated Standing Seam will deliver the protection you need.

Summit’s Heated Standing Seam is unique. Its sleek batten profile cleverly houses the heating system. No longer does one have to use exposed heat tape cable to mitigate ice issues along metal roofing.
