Alpine SnowGuards engineers, designs and manufactures a variety of snow guards. We have a style for every roof type, in systems and designs that will complement any taste and any roof, new or retrofit.
Snow guards are rooftop devices that allow snow and ice to drop off in small amounts or allow snow and ice to melt completely before falling to the ground. The installation of snow guards prevents the sudden release of snow and ice from a roof, which is known as a roof avalanche. A roof avalanche can cause damage to people, pets, cars, landscaping, gutters, plumbing vents, lower roof areas, skylights and anything else that might be in the immediate area below your roof. Snow guards have been around for hundreds of years and have historically been used on slate, tile and metal roofs. The first snow guards were actually limbs that were attached to the eaves of a roof, with rocks placed atop the limbs, to hold the snow back.
Alpine SnowGuards line of products are designed and engineered based on first-hand knowledge accumulated over decades of experience, and are always extensively tested by 3rd party testing facilities, in our own facilities, and in the field by roofing experts.
Our snow guards use a proven fastening method that will maintain the roofs integrity, without voiding the roofing manufacturer’s warranty and can be installed on new or existing (retrofit) roofs. Many of our snow guards are available in a multitude of color and powder coating options to match any roof and please even the most discerning taste. We even offer custom solutions for custom projects.
All of our products are made with pride in the USA using recycled materials.
