Ice Buildup on Roof

Posted By: Cheryl Medina
Sunday, 17 December 2000, at 2:09 p.m.

We live in Chicago and have a steep sloping roof with a covered front porch. Over this porch area the snow begins to melt and constantly refreezes at the roof line by the gutters making huge icicles and buildup. I have seen electric de-icers (I believe they're electric) - wires in a zig-zag pattern on the roof-line that melts the ice/snow. I've asked electricians we know and HVAC's, they've seen them but none know where to get them. I've searched the internet to no avail. Please, can you help?
