Snow guards are rooftop devices that allow snow and ice to drop off in small amounts or melt completely before falling to the ground. Alpine SnowGuards® snow retention products help prevent damage caused by avalanching snow and ice while enhancing the beauty of any roofing system. Historically used with slate roofs, snow guards are a practical, cost-effective addition to any sloped roof in cold-weather areas. @alpine14
Made from plastic to look like ½-inch-thick slate, this crack-proof synthetic version costs about half as much as the real thing, and installation is faster, saving on labor. Can replace a roof that currently has asphalt shingles without the need for any additional structural support. Shown: The European blend uses a mix of gray to dark-violet shingles for a look commonly used around the 1840s. Starting at $2.85 per square foot; DaVinci Roofscapes
