Once you have installed Stand-Guard Snow Guards you can rest easy with your investment.

“In designing and building my own house, I could not find a means of snow retention that suited my needs. My requirements were cost, aesthetic and function. Of all the materials that go into building a home, snow guards were the one item unavailable to meet all those needs. Either they were too expensive, inappropriate to the design of the home, or extremely difficult to install. Seeing a lack in the market, I designed these snow guards to meet my own needs. In doing so, I have been able to expand to meet the needs of other metal roof systems.”

-Christian McIntosh, owner/designer
