Custom Snow Guards? No Problem!

Industry leader Alpine SnowGuards was born in the mid-1990’s, and we’ve engineered custom snow guards ever since. Our company president and founder, Brian Stearns, was once a slate roofer in search of snow guards that wouldn’t fail under extreme snow loads like we often see in New England. Instead of continuing his (futile) search, he made his own and now we manufacture 60+ rugged rooftop snow management systems. That’s Brian on the left in the photo below, on a consulting job in Japan.

Custom adjective • cus-tom

1: Made or performed according to personal order

2: Specializing in custom work or operation


It wasn’t long before other roofers started asking where he was getting these new, robust snow guards that were unlike anything they’d ever seen before. And the rest is history.

Alpine SnowGuards Manufactures 60+ Snow Management Systems

Besides the 60+ systems we currently manufacture, we also design MANY solutions that are customized from the very beginning of the snow guard manufacturing cycle, the R&D and design phase.

Innovation has always been one of our many strong suits, and with the talent to back it up, we’ve created hundreds of customized snow management systems over the years. Systems that run the gamut from complicated, decorative and elaborate, to ornate, and even unusual. Systems created for small roofing contractors all the way up to the largest contractors in North America.

Take a peek at just some of these customized systems, and don’t hesitate to reach out the next time a project you’re working on requires something a little outside of the box. After all, it’s our specialty!
