snow melt

would be the best first step. contact a rep or supplier of any of the radiant tubing manufacturers. they all have snowmelt calculation software. Watts Radiant, Viega, Uponor, Roth Rehau, Mr pex, etc.

The program will spell out all the data you need to bid. tube size and spacing, loop lengths, pump size, etc. You need to decide which class of snowmelt you need, generally from 90 yo 200 BTU/ sq. ft.
