Up on the Roof

Normally the two words "drift" and "roof" to folks in our trade would create a picture of prevailing winds forcing a snow drift to bank its weight on one particular part of the roofing structure, creating a stress point for the building, and additional liability for any objects below that might get damaged by a [...]

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

Whether or not our guards could hold on during something like [...]

Snow! Snow! Snow!

Wow, I think there were a few kids praying for a White Christmas this year.  If you live in the Mid West you know what I’m talking about.  Every now and then Mother Nature likes to remind us of the upper hand she has on us.  For those of you that have protected your homes [...]
