Do icicles plague your entrances, leaving a sheet of ice under every door? Have you experienced anything like the picture below, where ice dams form over your gutters? That’s a classic example of where heat loss from your roof causes water to refreeze over your soffit, which is much colder than your attic.
If any of these situations is familiar to you, then heated gutter guards should be something you consider for a true four-season gutter guard.
How does Ice Shield by MasterShield work?
Ice Shield can be heated with a self-regulating heat cable or a constant wattage heat cable. You can heat an area as small as over an entrance way or an entire gutter run. The heat cable prevents ice in your gutters and ice dams while allowing water to flow through gutters that would normally freeze solid with ice.
Imagine the pleasure of walking into your home even on the snowiest of days and not worrying about slipping on an ice-covered stoop. Melted snow from your roof will flow freely through your gutters and downspouts. You’ll be able to put thoughts of every snowstorm causing damage to your roof edge out of your head. With heated gutter guards, you’ll never have to worry about your gutters pulling away from your home, either.

Frequently Asked Questions about Heated Gutter Guards and Heated Gutter Systems:
Will heated gutter guards run up my electric bill in the winter?
No, they will not. Heated gutter systems from MasterShield can be ordered with a self-regulating heat cable. A self-regulating heat cable will adjust the amount of heat it puts out based on the temperature of the surface. This means that when it is not needed, it will not be working and won’t be using any electricity.
Will my heated gutter guards be visible year-round?
No. Because we install the heated gutter systems ourselves, this is always done in the most unobtrusive way possible.
Are heated gutters a potential fire hazard?
No. A professionally installed and wired heated gutter system is 100% safe when it comes from MasterShield.
Will heated gutter guards affect the performance of my MasterShield copper gutter guards?
Yes, and they will actually improve the performance of your gutter guards! This is because when combined with MasterShield’s new copper technology, your heated gutter guards will work better throughout the year.
