What are Snow Guards?
Snow guards or snow stoppers are rooftop devices that help prevent snow slides, by allowing them to melt completely and drop off in smaller amounts. When you install a snow guard, you can rest assured that you will benefit from a safer roofing system, less complaints of falling ice and snow, less damage to your property, and overall peace of mind throughout the winter. They are a cost-effective way to help prevent damage from avalanching snow and ice from metal roofs in winter climates.
The use of these snow retention devices started several hundred years ago in areas of Scandinavia and the Alps. Builders and homeowners in high-snow areas placed stones and logs on rooftops to increase the friction and retention of the snow.
It’s better to use stronger and safer snow guards to prevent snow slides on people or property. Call us today for a free quote.
