If you've listened, read, or watched the news today, you may be aware that a massive snowstorm is headed for the East Coast of the U.S. over the next several days. Like all natural disasters and hazards, when the time for performance has come, the time for preparation has passed... make sure you are not [...]

Roofers and others in the varying construction trades tend to get a bad wrap for their infamously crude sense of humor that is seen as common in the blue-collar industries that drive growth economies. At Sno Shield however we like to keep it clean but still love a good laugh and appreciate the great benefits [...]

I looked out the window and what did I see? A new perspective on life

By | 2016-10-19T12:38:44+00:00 February 6th, 2013|snow guards, thoughts|

Isn't it funny how once you learn something new or are exposed to something fresh and different, that you start to notice that particular fact or thing or word in places that you never previously considered? Yesterday one of our friends who just recently learned about what we do at Sno Shield, e-mailed us this [...]

Snow way that’s true?!

Trivial Pursuit--a game that is very much worthy of its name, is a pursuit of seemingly trivial facts and matters that are rarely useful in ever day life. Yet, every now and then you learn something cool enough that it sticks and becomes a useful and valuable morsel of knowledge in the future. Well, at [...]

Here in the rocky mountains we have some of the best snow on earth. Long before the 2002 Winter Olympics at Salt Lake City, skiers and snowboarders were coming from all around the world to enjoy our mountains and our fresh snow. As we were browsing around on youtube this morning to see if we [...]

Bring me Sunshine!

We love snow because it gives us great business, but you can't beat a bit of warm sunshine to brighten up your day. For some folks in various parts of the country or world who live through a distinct snowy and a distinct sunny season each year, protecting roofed solar panels is something that can [...]

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. Driving to work yesterday reminded us of this amusing (below), but sobering video taken in Bountiful, Utah, about the same time last year; within the space of just [...]

If you woke up in SE Idaho today, the image below probably isn't too dissimilar to what you witnessed as you prepared to go out to work this morning! This image was posted by iJump, Southeast Idaho's Indoor Trampoline Park. Go to their facebook page to comment on the picture, and know that the best [...]

A roof over your head…

By | 2016-10-19T12:38:44+00:00 January 25th, 2013|safety, snow guards, thoughts, videos|

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 [...]
