I installed metal roofing (from **********) on my shed and I am trying to find something to prevent the ice from sliding off the roof. I have seen ice systems on commercial metal roofs with clear plastic vertical pegs that are installed on the entire roof or near the edges in some cases. The pegs look to be about 4 or 5 inches long and I believe are clear plastic so they transfer heat from the sun to melt the ice on the roof. I asked the people at ********** and they were not able to help me. I appreciate any information that can be provided to assist me.
