Brutal Michigan winters can lead to unmanageable snow and ice buildup on your home. At American Metal Roofs of Michigan, our metal roof snow bars and ice guards help you control the problem. While some homeowners prefer to hold snow on the roof, an effective runoff system prevents buildup and ensures that snow descends safely to the ground. We have two distinct options available: snow guards and talon bars.
Protect doorways and high-traffic areas from falling snow and ice with our metal roof ice guards. These break up large sheets of snow during a thaw, protecting family and pets and allowing snow to come off your roof safely.
Snow guards serve three primary functions, which each offer a valuable benefit:
- Break Up Snow: This prevents heavy snow buildup, which can put excessive strain on your roof.
- Installed Over Doors: Placement helps protect family, visitors, and pets at entry and exit points.
- Allows Snow to Come Off the Roof: This prevents melted snow from freezing and forming ice dams.
In some areas, you may want to hold snow on the roof. Our metal roof snow bar retaining system is the best option for Michigan homes that need to control snow runoff. Be aware that holding snow on a roof should only be done where necessary and when you are confident an ice dam will not form. Even though our metal roofs are more durable than traditional shingles, ice dams can still cause damage. If you’re not sure about your situation, our roofing professionals can inspect your home and provide expert advice.
Protecting your home and your family during Michigan’s treacherous winter weather can be challenging, but our metal roof ice guards and snow handling systems can alleviate the stress. Contact us today to schedule an appointment or request a quote.
