The beauty and sparkle of newly fallen snow is quickly diminished when icy snow falls from your roof in a cold, hard plop on your head while walking to your front door or garage. But a freezing scenario of falling roof top ice and snow can quickly be prevented with the simple installation of snow guards. For our synthetic roofing material, we recommend the use of snowguards to provide protection from the consequences of ice and snow falling onto people or vehicles from snowy roofs.
In fact, we have offered plenty of advice and recommendations about what snow guards do and why they are important to property owners. Take a look at three previous posts concerning these vital roof accessories for areas of the country that often find snow and ice in the weather report.
