Snow Guards for Metal Roofing

By Brion P. McMullen, Bio

Snow Guards have evolved over the years, emerging from decades of limited attachment options.  In the last 35 years SnoBlox-Snojax has seen the introduction of new injection molded polycarbonate snow guards, non-penetrating seam clamped bar systems, and adhesives designed to bond plastics to metals with incredible strength.  As metal roofing has become a financially viable option, so has the demand for snow avalanche control products.

Many times, snow guards, sometimes called snow stops, may be an afterthought but most metal roof owners soon realize that they are a very import component in areas that are subject to receive any type of snow fall.  No other metal roofing component provides such great safety benefits at an affordable price.

With so many snow retention options now available, it can become a bit overwhelming to decide which snow guard system is right for a particular project.  We speak with potential new customers every day that have never purchased or installed snow guards and all they really know is that they see buildings locally with one or two rows down by the eave.  Sometimes one row is all that is necessary but depending on the pitch of the roof and length of panel run extra rows may be required for the system to function properly  This is why we developed the first online snow guard estimator for the metal roof industry called Spacing Tool. We invite you to visit the site at to find out the recommend snow guard placement and to help decide which snow guard product is right for your project.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would have never understood. I am looking forward for your next post, I am getting the hang of it!

    I’m going to talk with my husband about snow guards. I think our house could benefit from them this winter. I hope it isn’t too late.

    After this past snow storm, we definitely need to buy some snow guards. I will be in touch shortly.
