Heat Cable Provides Essential Protection for Durango, CO, Homes

Roofs and gutters that freeze at night and melt during the sunlight of the day are very likely to form ice dams absent the use of heat tape or cable. Ultimately, when the ice dams melt, the water often invades your home causing costly repairs to interior building materials and furnishings. Proper installation and committed use of heat tape or a cable provides a channel for water to properly release, eliminating ice dam buildup and potential damage to your home.



Southwest Gutter installs a self-regulating cable that carries an industry leading 10 year warranty (when paired with Gutter Helmet®) that will automatically reduce required energy usage as target temperatures are reached. This robust solution can be run on the roof and valleys, in the gutters and downspouts or integrated with our Gutter Helmet® product offering.



PAIRS WITH Gutter Helmet®

When paired with Gutter Helmet®, our 10-year warrantied self-regulating heat cable creates a powerful combination known as Helmet Heat®. The Helmet Heat® system works in conjunction with the Gutter Helmet® to keep pine needles, leaves, and debris out in the spring, summer, and fall while mitigating ice dam problems in the winter months. These products combine to provide year-round protection and is truly the PERMANENT solution. With the heat cable under the Gutter Helmet®, Helmet Heat® is protected from the harsh elements and small animals who gravitate to the warmth of the exposed heat tape/cable and are known to nibble on the cable. In addition, the elimination of the serpentine pattern on the roof is certainly more aesthetically pleasing.  Be sure to ask about our extended gutter warranties when integrated with Gutter Helmet® and Helmet Heat®!

“This is an excellent product with professional installation. The installation team worked over Super bowl weekend and the gutters came out beautiful. We ordered a more modern square gutter with custom downspouts to highlight our Mid-Century house style. The attention to detail is exceptional. I highly recommend this business. Thank you, Southwest Gutter! ”
