Removing Ice dams from roofs and eves can be very difficult.  Ice dam removal equipment is recommended.  Our testing shows roof melting cables and portable heated ice dam melting blankets are very effective devices.  The Powerblanket model# EH0310 (3′ x 10′) and the EH0325 (3′ x 25′) are both very good values and do an extremely good job of melting both roof ice and ground ice and snow.   See Powerblanket ice dam removal heated blankets at

Ice dams are caused when large amounts of ice form at the edge of the roof, thus trapping any snow on the roof behind it. With nowhere to go, the snow and water become trapped and will begin piling up on your roof, eves, and entryways. If ice dams have formed at the eaves of your roof you should immediately take measures to melt the ice enough to let any trapped water flow away.

Adding a second insulated blanket on top is strongly recommended for maximum results and will raise temperatures beneath the blanket and keep wind from pulling away heat.
