Fight Fire with fire and snow with snow

Here at Sno Shield we love the outdoors, but when we're indoors we like to be sure our shelter is warm and well protected. It is little wonder then that we are big fans of British ex-SAS survival guru Bear Grylls. Like us, when he is out and about in snow country he likes to [...]

Sliding Snow

For those of us living in snow country, these last few days have reminded us all of the need to protect ourselves from this great white element.

A roof over your head…

There are few things as "manly" or as testosterone-filled as working in the roofing trade, and certainly fewer satisfying experiences than seeing your constructed roof hold up and perform over the years of weathering nature's storms. Mankind has always sought a "roof over the head" for shelter, privacy, and protection from the elements.Given this precedent [...]

Snow Avalanches = Bad for your health :/

Several years ago in college I was in an international politics class where we were discussing the topic of "soft security" (i.e. not military or economic "hard" security matters); the subset of health security fell under this discussion, and we proceeded to list a range of health issues in the various countries we were assigned [...]

21st Century Business Marketing

Roofs and snow have been around since mankind first started roaming the earth; those of us in this trade are simply standing on the shoulders of the giants and great craftsmen who have gone before us--this trade is literally thousands of years old. But video marketing?... That's a different kettle of fish altogether! Yesterday we [...]

Introducing the Pipe Diverter

Snow fall and ice forming on roofs is just a fact life for most folks in the winter time, and protruding from most roofs are chimneys, pipes, satellite devices, or other outlets of sorts, that even a conventional snow guard cannot protect adequately. As a result we are now producing and holding a new, logical, [...]
