Metal Roof Snow Guards in MA, CT, NH, and RI
Classic Metal Roofs’ Snow Retention Systems
Many homeowners overlook the dangers of snow falling off their roofs. Snow may look light and fluffy, but it can become as heavy as 20 pounds per cubic foot when it accumulates. When large sheets of snow and ice suddenly fall at once, it can cause serious damage to people and property. Installing a metal roof ice guard or snow guard can protect you from the problem entirely. Classic Metal Roofs has decades of experience installing snow guards for metal roofs in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island. Learn more about installing a snow retention system for your metal roof.
What Are Roof Snow Guards?
Snow guards or snow bars are devices installed onto a roof to retain sheets of snow or ice that have accumulated. While there are several different configurations based on the type of roof, bar, and fasteners, most follow a similar design. A bar runs along the bottommost part of your roof, parallel to your gutters. This bar holds all the snow on the roof in place, preventing it from starting an avalanche.
Why Do I Need Snow Bars?
When thick sheets of snow or ice fall onto your roof, it may look picturesque, but it poses a significant risk to the people and things surrounding your home. Falling sheets of snow or ice can cause injury and damage vehicles. When snow bars are installed, the snow is kept on your roof until it melts. This also prevents oversized piles of snow that can smother flowerbeds, block entryways, and create more shoveling for you.
Installing Metal Roofs With Snow Retention Systems
The best time to install metal roof snow rails is when you are installing your roof. By installing your roof with snow guards, you can ensure that the materials match in color and age at the same rate. For instance, if you are installing a new standing seam metal roof, Classic Metal Roofs can install matching snow guards for your standing seam metal roof at the same time. Don’t forget that we are the only roofing company in the area that also includes gutters with all metal roofing installations.
Retrofit Metal Roofs for Snow Guards
If your metal roofing has already been installed, but you now realize you need a snow guard, we can help retrofit a snow retention system to your existing roof. Our team uses top-of-the-line S5 DualGard® snow retention systems. These use a zero-penetration clamping system, which is vital because it will keep your warranty and seal coating intact. If you notice that your roof sheds ice or snow in thick sheets as it’s melting, don’t wait for an accident to occur. Retrofit a metal roof snow guard to your home.
