What are Snow Brakes?
A Snow Brake is a device used to retain snow and ice from falling from one surface to a lower one. There are many advantages to having a metal roof however unlike shingle roofs, metal roofs have smooth surfaces that do not provide any resistance to keep snow from abruptly sliding off. In this case snow build-up can suddenly break loose in a massive slide that can cause damage to gutters, patio furniture, air conditioners, vehicles or cause bodily harm. If you have a metal roof, Snow Brakes are a must have!
