Prevent Ice Dams with the Snofree Roof Panel System

Ice dams can be frustrating. An ice dam forms when the roof over the attic gets warm enough to melt the bottom layer of snow. The snow melts into water and  the water trickles down between the layers of snow until it reaches the eave of the roof. There, the water freezes, gradually growing into a mound of ice. These ice dams can damage both your roof and the inside of your home if the water finds an opening.

The traditional way to prevent ice dams is to attach exposed heat cables in a serpentine pattern along the edge of the roof.  This method is only effective in mild climates and the exposed cables can detract from the beauty of the home.

Valin’s patented SnoFree™ Roof Panel System is perfect for even the harshest environments and come with diverse finish options that can seamlessly blend-in or expressively stand-out to match the personality of your building.  Our roof panel system is also energy efficient. The material, shape and mass of our extruded aluminum core and steel enclosure maximize the transfer of heat, which in turn minimizes energy and saves you money. Compared to the competition, SnoFree™ Roof Panels provide up to 33% less energy consumption.
