electric heating tapes for ice dams

Hi, folks. I have to get some electric heating tapes installed on my home, unfortunately ASAP, to prevent a recurrence of a very destructive ice dam. any links, ideas, etc would be greatly appreciated.

You can't install one now. You have to install one in warm weather so that you can lift and bend the shingles. Even if you could get to your roof now, the shingles would break when you try to bend them.
