Snow Retention Systems

Think of a snow slide as a rooftop avalanche; it can damage surrounding property, the building itself, and even injure people. These dangerous and expensive situations can be avoided by using snow guards or snow retention systems.

What Is A Snow
Retention System?

A snow retention system is a series of guards that is placed on the roof which helps prevent the snow from sliding off. The idea is that the snow should thaw and evaporate naturally, rather than coming down all at once and crushing whatever is beneath it.

Who's At Risk
For Snow Slides?

In our experience, almost every roof in an area with occasional heavy snowfall (like the DC area) will, at some point, experience a snow slide. Things at risk for damage from a snow slide include:

  • Gutters
  • Flues
  • Vents
  • Building mechanical equipment
  • Construction and landscaping details
  • Bushes, trees, and plants
  • Vehicles and other personal property
  • Human beings and animals
