While now may seem like the perfect time for a winter wonderland, it is important to keep in mind that the weather during this season can be particularly dangerous. And with the threat of ice storms and blizzards causing damage to the place where you live, protecting your home against these natural events is absolutely necessary.
As an important measure, snow guards can be installed on your roof to not only protect your home but also those who live in it. By placing snow guards at strategic positions on your roof, snow will not accumulate in mass amounts and slide down your roof, posing a huge risk to passersby. Small children, who often play by the side of homes, are in danger during the winter months with the threat of mass amounts of snow falling on them.
Snow guards are made of materials that can withstand the cold weather like metal or polycarbonate and can endure the chills of the winter season. Safety, however, does not need to be compromised for style; snow guards come in a variety of styles and colors, so any home can find some that matches its roof. DaVinci Roofscapes recommends Alpine Snowguards, in particular, to go with our plastic slate roof and environmentally friendly roof options.
