Are you expecting to see a lot of snow this season? Some of us look forward to it, while others fear it, but either way, you will need to deal with the reality if the snow does fall. Snow on your roof usually doesn’t bother you until the spring comes around and it comes crashing down. For some, spring turns their home into a risk-zone, where icicles and snow-sheets can come down on their head causing serious injury. One solution to this problem is to install snow guards at the bottom of the roof. Snow guards are designed to break up large sheets of ice and snow into smaller pieces so that it doesn’t all come crashing down at once. They are not usually installed with a new build, but some choose to have them installed later for safety. Snow guards shouldn’t be installed on an extended roof, since this adds quite a bit of weight to an area that might not have enough structural support.
