Can snow melt off the gutter guard and unto the ground and refreeze causing a slipping hazard?
Yes. Snow melting and running down your roof can run off the side of the gutter and refreeze on the ground below when you have any gutter guard installed. Water frozen on surfaces can create slipping hazards and cause serious bodily harm.
CAUTION: ICICLES & ICE DAMS can form on your gutter during freezing conditions. Icicles can break and cause serious bodily harm. Properly installed, operated and maintained heating elements on your roof and gutter can melt icicles and ice dams. Use a licensed electrical contractor in good standing for installing any heating element products.
