On average, the city of Hawley, PA gets more than 40 inches of snowfall annually. That is a pretty good amount of snow. When a home or a building is located in a climate with that level of snowfall, we would recommend installing snow guards along with your imitation slate roof system. Like natural slate, a manufactured slate needs snow guards in order to retain snow on the roof so it can melt and come off little by little, and not in one large amount.
