Have you been carefully monitoring that gravity-defying overhang of snow that sits atop your roof? Glistening beautifully in the sun, a heap of snow is fixated at the edge of the roof line, as it has been for days, surely it will linger for a few more days, right? Sorry, there’s no way to guarantee just how long it will stay put. In fact, avalanches are unpredictable and catastrophic events. The snow may fall wherever and whenever it wants to – a sidewalk, a car, or pedestrians.
Enter snow retention. Snow guards help preserve your metal roof and allow snow drifts and snow-melt to exit the roof in a more controlled manner - avoiding the potential calamity of a rooftop avalanche.
