Retro-fitting an existing metal roof with heat panels couldn’t be easier with the IceFree Retro-fits’ simple design. New heated panels are placed on top of the existing metal roof. Colors can be matched to your existing roof. The aluminum alloy panel surrounds the available heat source; the top, bottom and sides are in direct contact with the heat source at all times.
