A Star-Spangled July Special

Tomorrow is Independence Day. How will you be celebrating?

At my house, we’ll go to the town parade, eat some fried dough at the carnival afterwards, head home and swim in the pool (it’s going to be 95° in Vermont tomorrow with no clouds in the sky), cook up some pulled pork and watch the fireworks at dusk.

At Alpine SnowGuards, we’re celebrating by offering a special promotion!

Any order of our PP115, PP125, PP225, or PP325 pipe-style snow guards placed & shipped by July 31st will receive an additional 10% off! We appreciate our clients, and we wanted to give you an opportunity to save some dough, and to stock up NOW for future projects (think fall – it’s closer than we think!)

So, what are the uses for each of these snow guards?

What roof types do they accommodate?

What do they look like installed?

Take a look….


For membrane or metal shingle roofing applications

It’s funny to be starting with the PP115, since I posted about this system just a few months ago – See that post here, and learn more about the PP115, and why it’s becoming the go-to for managing snow on membrane roofs.


For slate, synthetic slate, comp shingle, and cedar shingle roofing applications

SLICK. That’s the word that always comes to my mind when I see an install image of the PP125. This is a very common system for use on slate roofs in the higher education sector, being installed at the University of Notre Dame and Yale University, to name just a few.

This system is available in 3 configurations: 2-pipe, 3-pipe, and 2 hi-hole pipe (all accept 1” OD pipe), and are compatible with the use of ice screens and ice flags.

The bracket is Aluminum, the base plate is Stainless Steel, and the entire system can be powder-coated in a color to match the roofing material.
