snow and ice sliding down roof

Guest User

I have large sheets of snow and ice that slide down the roof in winter. They have caused damage to my deck and railings below and are quite dangerous. I would like to attach something to the facia board above the gutter to break up the sheets. Any ideas on what might be available for a homeowner to do it himself?

There are a variety of snowguards available for metal roofing. An internet search will reveal several manufacturers. Also, you might check with the manufacturer of your roofing. Another good resource for several styles is www.alpinesnowguards.com

Do we have the same name? Anyway ... most metal roofing manufacturers offer some sort of snow guard which is compatible with their roof. Other than that, you can do an internet search for snowguards for metal roofing and you'll find plent of choice. Some names are Snojax, SnowGems, Polarblox, and Alpine Snowguards.

I manufacture a spanish tile metal roof however we offer it with a granular coating that holds snow and ice similar to asphalt shingles. I assume then that you have a painted metal tile which will quickly release the snow. First I would strongly recommend contacting the manufacturer as they will know what works best. Failing that I would go to www.moderntrade.com a publisher of three metal trade magazines and check out ther advertisers. Failing that we have a friendly competitor in Ontario Canada that manufacturers a tile panel similar to the one you describe and they sell a good version that is from clear plastic and I do know that they sell in the states. Try calling Steel-Tile from Barrie, On. Contact me directly and I will get you the numbers. Good Luck.
