When it comes to installing a metal roof, one of the important details will be the installation of snow guards. For the inhabitants of Canada, this issue is especially relevant because in almost all parts of it there is a huge level of snow in winter.
Metal roof snow guards protect the roof and everything around it from uncontrolled avalanches. They trap and cut the main layer of snow and ice on the roof. Installing snow guards on the metal roof of the house will protect from falling huge pieces of snow, people, cars, flower beds, and others.
Externally, snow guards may differ; they have a different shape and purpose. For example, they can look like small projections of metal plates along the roof, or they can be in the form of two tubes located one above the other.
In the first case, metal roof ice stops are designed to crush snow into small pieces. In the case of a tube structure, they can cut off a certain level of snow or even block its convergence before it melts.
