We recently had a call from a domestic-use customer who informed us of their Sno Shield Rib Guard Snow Guards as out-lasting the roof itself after a freak hail storm hit the area… the Rib Guards remained intact, but unfortunately the roof needed replacing. Whether or not our guards could hold on during something like Hurricane Sandy remains to be seen (we haven’t done that test yet!), although we’re pretty confident that like the hail storm, the roof would probably need replacing before the guards themselves.
If you’re in a part of the country that is less prone to freak acts of nature, that sees precipitation in its various forms on a relatively regular basis, then you have the advantage of annual foresight to help inform your preparation decisions for the pending snow season (if it hasn’t hit already like it has in Idaho!)
Check out the images below to see what could be damaging your roof(s) in the following months if you don’t prepare now.
