Congratulations … you're ready to start 2016 by investing in a new designer roof from DaVinci Roofscapes. You've made all the arrangements except one … the snow guards.
"If you live in an area prone to snowfall or ice buildups, snow guards are essential for your polymer roof," says Tim Gentry with DaVinci Roofscapes. "Snow guards help prevent melting snow and ice from 'avalanching' down in one sheet, which can harm landscaping or people underneath."
There are many different types of snow guards. When selecting snow guards for use on DaVinci roofs, remember that they must have an attachment strap and be manufactured of long lasting- non-corrosive metals. The best types to use with DaVinci composite roofing are manufactured of copper, stainless steel or coated aluminum. Plastic snow guards that are attached with adhesive, typically used on metal roofs, are not recommended for DaVinci roofs.
If you'd like to add some added style to your roof, snow guards can be ordered in the shape of everything from eagles to flowers (see Stylish Snow Guards). To gain more details about the importance of snow guards, see Q & A Guide to Snow Guards and To Guard … or Not to Guard.
