Let me ask you a question, “How would you feel if a child was killed by a tile falling from your roof?”

There is a common misconception that “Snow Guards” on a roof have something to do with the winter?

That is not the case; “Snow Guards” are a safety device to prevent Tiles or Debris falling from a roof

Snow Guards Prevent Falling Tiles

The name “Snow Guards” obviously originated in places where a lot of snow can build up on a roof
and the Guard was an attempt to prevent this from causing damage when the avalanche occurred.

When the snow slides off the roof, it may take tiles with it.  If there is a Conservatory or other Glass Roof
It could collapse when a mass of snow and debris fell onto it.

Snow Guard On A tiled Roof

Snow Guards should alway be fitted to any Roof that is above something that would be damaged
When tiles fell onto it.

If you are having a new Conservatory fitted PLEASE fit the Snow Guards First!
