Can I Still Install my Snowmelt System with Expansion Joints in the Concrete?

Installing Snowmelt System with Expansion Joints

Yes, however careful planning is necessary to avoid any issues when the expansion joints are cut.

To avoid any issues, plan out where the joints are cut.

Ensure one length of the cable is tied to the floating rebar. The cable should be tied to either side of where the joint will be. At the end, the cable loops, connecting both runs of cable. Use a landscape hook to secure the loop far enough down to avoid the joint cuts.

Make sure to be taking resistance readings before the cuts are made. Take readings during cuts are made and after to ensure there was no damage.
