SNOW/ICE PROTECTION

Due to our diverse climate with heavy snow, we advise our customers to purchase one of the snow guard systems below on any of our roof systems installed on a 4/12 or higher pitch.

While this is not a mandatory item, snow/ice slides off metal surfaces much easier then most other types of roofing material and can cause bodily damage as well as damage gutters or landscaping etc.

Steelmaster does NOT make any warranty claims in regards to the performance of any snow guard systems.
Results depend on amount of snow/ice, pitch of roof, steepness of roof, length of roof plane, exposure to sunlight etc. Below are five options we offer.
