Benefits of Installing Bolt Down Snow Fences

Home Improvement
The list of roofing problems associated with cold climates and the damage that could occur from it to life and property is seemingly endless! When large ice dams or icicles break loose, or snow slides down your roof, they can damage fascia, roof penetrations, and gutters. They can even cause serious life-threatening injuries to the people below the roof! Imagine a huge curl of snow and ice curling down and falling off your metal roof onto your parked car or, even worse, your visitor’s head! When ice and snow dam on your roof, they can cause roofs to age prematurely as a result of the thaw and freeze cycles. The roofing surface can undergo serious damage when subjected to repeated expansion and contraction.

Bolt down snow fences are snow guards used on roofs covering buildings in snow-prone areas. Bolt down snow fences are installed as a safety measure to avoid hurting someone entering or exiting the building at a bad moment, and/or to prevent damage caused to property.

Benefits of Installing Bolt Down Snow Fences on your Roof

• Such snow retention systems are installed to avoid knocking gutters off of the structure.

Properly placing gutters can help prevent ice/snow from knocking off the gutters. The gutter can be placed so that the outermost gutter edge is below or in the extended roof slope plane. However, in heavy snow areas, most homeowners have given up on the idea of keeping gutters to avoid damage, using other means to direct roof runoff away from the building. In addition to gutter damage from sliding ice and snow, sliding snow and ice can damage plumbing vents - a failure that risks leaks in the roof system and into the building!

• Bolt down snow fences are installed to avoid piles of snow on platforms such as the entrance steps. This can increase the aesthetic appeal of your home, as well as make it safe for your family and visitors by preventing dangerous slips and falls.

• They can help avoid damage to lower roofs. For example, heavy loads of ice and snow suddenly falling from an upper roof slope on to a lower standing metal roof may damage or bend the standing seam, and ice or snow falling from an upper to a lower tile or slate roof could break slates or tiles on the lower surface. Bolt down snow fences can act as effective snow retention systems to prevent such damage to the lower standing roofs.

• They can also help prevent damage to shrubs or other mechanical systems such as air conditioning condenser / compressor equipment located beneath the building eaves or landscaping.

With effective snow retention systems like a bolt down snow fences in place, the accumulated snow will eventually blow away or remain until it melts. Not only is the risk of damage to persons and objects below be avoided, but the banking of ice and snow at the eaves can be prevented, thus eliminating the chances of consequent leaks and backwater, as well as a straining of the gutter structure.

Rocky Mountain Snow Guards in Denver, CO, manufactures and distributes bolt down snow fences and other snow retention systems of all shapes and sizes for residential and commercial building. They joined USGBC (United States Green Building Council) as a member organization committed to environmentally-friendly practices. To know more about installing a snow fence, you may visit eHow.
