Yes, we have a wide variety of snow guard options that will work on existing roofs or new roof construction.
We make a snow guard for all roof types—for metal, shingle, tile, slate, membrane, solar panels and everything in between. You can learn more by visiting our Our Products page and search for the best fit for your needs or click here to view our simple application chart.
Snow guards should be placed on all roof surfaces to protect against snow damage below. It is especially important to install them above entryways, walkways, gathering areas, landscaping, parking areas, ground-mounted mechanicals, lower roofs, valleys, crickets, gutters, and vents.
We recommend installation by a trained professional, such as roofing contractors or gutter installation companies.
No. Our snow guards are specifically designed to prevent entire roof loads of snow from dumping or avalanching all at once. Small amounts of snow and ice will still melt off.
Inadequate insulation, air leaks and improper ventilation can cause a build-up of water between the snow and the roof surface, resulting in the formation of icicles. Snow guards will not prevent icicles from forming.
This depends on several factors including roof slope, rafter length, building orientation and snow load. You can fill out our Layout Request Form, and we will provide you with a free recommended layout.
Our snow guards are available directly from Alpine SnowGuards, as well as through many building supply companies and distributors nationwide. If you are looking for a distributor near you, please give us a call 1-888-766-4273 or email us at email@example.com
