Use of Snow Retention Devices: Science or Science Fiction? Phacts or Phobias?

Wednesday, March 6 from 7:30–8:30 am


The forces of snow and ice on rooftops can be significant, causing damage to valleys, eaves, and gutters. Slippery roof surfaces can release a sudden load of snow that may harm people and property below. Many snow-retention devices are available, but not all are effective in all applications. This presentation will cover myths and misconceptions about how snow acts on a roof and what products and placements work in particular situations. The presenters have decades of experience in the field—their factual knowledge and commonsense approach will equip you with what you need to know to construct a safe, complete metal roof system.
