Just wondering if anyone has tried to install a metal standing seam roof in the winter time fighting frost, snow , and ice conditions. The roof in question is a 4:12 slope. Are there any aftermarket shoes that are better than others for traction? We already are using " Grippers" from Dynamic fasteners and they are ok but not very durable. Looking for suggestions. Seems that nothing is going to work on ice or frost. Is there a liquid we can spray which will melt the frost but not become slushy ?

We cover the the last 8' or so section of roof with concrete blankets before we leave for the day and then when we return the next morning we pull off and have a somewhat dry area to walk on and continue roofing..

We have battled this for years. We buy indoor/outdoor carpet to the length of the roof runs. If its covered in snow we can slide it completely off the roof and put it back up at the end of the day. Works Great and covers 12"
