Using the Correct Snow Retention System for a Given Project. When I first started putting slate roofing on in the Northeastern United States, customers would ask if they need snow guards. Most of the projects I helped repair or salvage roofs that did not even have gutters attached. So, snow guards weren’t even a Keep reading….
In just 2 weeks Alpine SnowGuards will once again be at METALCON! I love that the show always falls in October – or as some of my friends in the industry refer to it, “ROCKtober”. Alpine’s wide variety of options and configurations for managing rooftop snow spans all roof types, but since this week is Keep reading….
As Q1 comes to a close, the crew at EcoFasten Solar finds ourselves with 3 tradeshows already behind us. I just can’t believe how fast the time goes! And even though we always send thank you and follow-up emails, I still would like to say in this (very) public forum, “THANK YOU”. Thank you to Keep reading….
What makes Alpine SnowGuards the industry leader in snow management? Experience. Dedication. Precision-based knowledge. Foresight. Brian Stearns, the President and Founder of Alpine SnowGuards started his roofing career in the slate roofing industry in the 1970’s.

The SPI show floor opens in under 4 hours! Yay! It’s so hard to believe it’s already here….I don’t know about you, but I feel like we JUST returned from Intersolar. If you’re at the show this year, stop by and say hi to the EcoFasten Solar crew at booth 3071. Making our booth their home Keep reading….
It’s hard to believe 2016 is here. Last year went by in what seems like the blink of an eye. Every year I ask the same thing, “HOW did that happen?” 2015 was a very abundant, productive year for EcoFasten Solar. On the tradeshow front, we exhibited with our Sister Company, Alpine SnowGuards at the Keep reading….
Last week Alpine SnowGuards and EcoFasten Solar co-exhibited at Metalcon in Tampa, and it was so great to see so many familiar faces and many new ones alike! The more roofing industry shows we attend, the more solar interactions we find ourselves having, and Metalcon was no different. It makes sense! Roof-mounted solar is part of Keep reading….
It’s incredibly hard to believe that in just 7 weeks, we’ll be at Intersolar North America! To put that into perspective, 7 weeks ago was the week after Easter (with snow still covering many parts of our stomping grounds in Vermont). It’s ridiculous how fast that time has flown by….Thankfully, summer-like weather is here (it’s supposed to Keep reading….
The International Roofing Expo (IRE) has grown considerably in the past few years.

This year the show is headed to New Orleans, and will run from February 24th through February 26th. As Keep reading….
