Gong Xi Fa Cai! Meanwhile, on the roofs of China…

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

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 [...]

Have a RAIL Good Time in the Snow

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 [...]

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. 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 [...]

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 [...]

Hurricane Sandy, Hail Storms, and Snow Season

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 [...]
