Larry Schuman, the owner of a beautiful cabin in Shaver Lake needed a quick and reasonably priced metal roof snow guard system due to some frightening snow slides. The roof had a 12/12 pitch and an unusual seam configuration. Furthermore, the snow load in that part of the Sierra Nevada Mountains is typically 150 to 200 lbs. per square foot, so the system needed to be strong, without undermining the appearance of the structure.
Confident that S-5! would be able to offer a reliable, affordable, and long-lasting solution, OC Metals (an S-5! distributor) was willing to tackle the project. That solution was to design a custom snow retention system using S-5! ColorGard®, which is mechanically attached with S-5! clamps.
S-5! clamps have round-point setscrews which grip the seam securely without penetration. The clamps are precision-machined from aircraft quality, high tensile aluminum, and forge the industry standard in holding strength.
Furthermore, ColorGard is the only metal roof snow guard system designed and engineered on a site-specific basis, offering an optional Limited Lifetime Warranty, guaranteeing ideal performance.
Mr. Schuman’s ColorGard system offers holding strength and a perfect color-match that will last the full life of the cabin’s roof, slowing and preventing snow migration for upwards of 30 years. His newly installed snow retention system will maintain the clean, colorful appearance of the roof with perfect color and finish.
ColorGard snow guards feature finish-matching that lasts the life of the roof because it is the same material as the roof. Easily install any time of the year; or retrofit the ColorGard system to an existing roof or incorporate it in the new roof design.
