Snow guards are a functional addition to your home’s roof that helps snow melt way, as opposed to falling in large sheets, which could damage your home, landscaping and walkways.
In the Chicago area, snow guards are a necessity for home and building owners with roofs made of wood, slate or metal. Snow guards also should be used for steep roofs.
As wet snow falls, snow can bond together, creating a large sheet of snow and ice that, in the right conditions, can break off, falling as one large piece, threatening damage to your home or injure any passers-by.
Snow guards hold on to the snowy sheets, preventing them from falling and allowing snow instead to melt and break off gradually, minimizing the risk of damage.
Snow guards come in a variety of materials, but most are aluminum due to its ability to resist corrosion.
