Snow guards of various materials including stones, logs, and fencing have been used for hundreds of years. These bulky, primitive systems helped to protect the roofs from sudden slides and also insulated the structures from extreme weather. Early systems were made of materials that were collected locally and installed with little regard for cosmetics. Early roofing materials were not as slippery as modern metal panels, but still required snow retention methods in extreme cases.
Roofing materials and snow retention methods have evolved dramatically over the years. Visit our web site see the latest technology in snow guards.
