Rain Gutter Heat Tape is an Essential Part of Any Home’s Gutter System in Eastern South Dakota

In eastern South Dakota, where the winters are as harsh as any, it’s not uncommon for mountains of snow to accumulate on the roof of a home—unless that home is outfitted with rain gutter heat tape, that is. However, this heat tape needs to be installed properly in order to work as it should, which is where the help of a local gutter company is needed. Fortunately, there’s only one name local homeowners rely on to enhance their gutter systems with rain gutter heat tape and other protective gutter products: LeafGuard of South Dakota.

How Does Rain Gutter Heat Tape Work?

Gutter heat tape is an integral gutter system component for any home that endures significant snowfall each winter. Without rain gutter heat tape running through your gutters, the snow that accumulates on your roof eventually makes it way to your gutters and turns back into ice, forming an ice dam where your gutters meet your roof. This can lead to serious problems such as roof leaks and the structure of your home being compromised. With rain gutter heat tape, snow is quickly melted and flows harmlessly through your gutters and away from your home without any incurred damage.

Gutter Heat Tape Installation

Installation of gutter heat tape can be tricky, which is why it should be left up to the professionals at LeafGuard of South Dakota. Before performing the installation, our seasoned technicians will:

  • Inspect your existing gutter system to ensure it is in adequate condition for rain gutter heat tape and, if not, provide expert recommendations on LeafGuard® seamless gutters
  • Make sure your home’s electrical system can handle the added load and even install a separate electrical box for your heat tape so that an electrical shortage doesn’t occur
  • Install a control switch that allows you to turn the gutter heat tape on and off with convenience

“In the past, I would have to have my gutters cleaned out several times a year! After seeing LeafGuard gutters TV ad featuring the lifetime no clog guarantee, I knew we needed to get an estimate. Laura came out to measure my home and 3 stall garage. She explained the benefits and product wonderfully. I decided to have LeafGuard of South Dakota install July 2016. I have not had to clean my gutters once since then. It is now almost 3 years later! Highly recommend!!”

“My old gutter guards were worn out and not pleasing to the eye. LeafGuard of South Dakota installed their system October 2017. Since then I have not expierenced any issues with clogging. The design also blends right into my home - I can barely tell they are there.”
