Installing Snow Guards on Asphalt Shingle Roofs

July 14th, 2022

Your roof is probably not exactly like your neighbor’s.

Or, if it is, then it’s not exactly like your friend’s.

Whether you have a metal roof (likely one of the metal roofs that belongs to the standing seam roofs family), slate roofs, a steel roof, or no matter your roof type, all roofs have the same problem: snow falling.

What’s Up There? Oh, Snow

Snow retention, or the practice of keeping snow on your roof until it melts naturally, prevents extensive damage from the sudden release of snow (called a roof avalanche) in the winter months.

Your roofing contractor, no matter your roof, probably created your roof with gutters that are more than prepared for heavy rainfall: but what about ice and snow?

Snow guards for your roof are the snow retention answer you need.

What Ifs and the Answer

But what about YOUR roof?

What about your metal roof, or roofs on your house that have slate shingling or another roof style?

What if you have a cedar roof?

Fun fact: snow guards can be used on ANY roof!

The great thing about snow guards is that, since there are different snow guards designed for different roofs, adding snow guards to metal roofs is just as simple a process as adding snow guards or a snow guard substitute to any other roof.

How Do You Get Snow Guards?

When you use the right installation guides and understand what’s best for your house, you can install snow guards that worked perfectly on one roof and work perfectly on yours, too.

Yes, YOU, the owner of the property, can get a snow guard installed.

There are many different types of roofs out there and many people believe snow retention installation can’t prevent damage on all of them.

We disagree!

Our snow retention products can be installed on most roof types.

And Now: the Video!

One of the most common materials used in roofing is asphalt shingles because they are relatively inexpensive and pretty easy to install.
