    What Is the Purpose of Snow Guards?

    The main purpose of any snow retention or snow guard system is to retain snow packs on the roof so that it can evacuate the roof slowly and predictably through fine evaporation rather than suddenly and unpredictably in avalanche fashion.

    Sudden snow pack falls sometimes can prove to be quite damaging and dangerous to both properties and individuals standing under or near it.

    What Causes Rooftop Avalanches?

    During a snowstorm as snow piles up on the roof, the sunlight is occluded from the roof, and snowpack is retained on the roof by two different bonds. There is a temperature-sensitive frictional bond between the blanket of snow and the roof.

    There’s also a cohesive bond up at the ridge. One blanket on either side of the ridge co hearing to each other. And it’s a combination of those two bands that are resisting the drag load or gravity load of the snow, which is trying to slide off the roof. So, there are both frictions involved as well as a cohesive bond.

    If the vector forces that drag load exceed the strength of those two bonds, then the avalanche will occur. So, what happens is the next day when the storm is dissipated, and the sun comes out, the sun’s rays shining through the slightly translucent snow warms the roof surface under this snowbank.

    When the surface heats up, this temperature-sensitive friction lining is released. This bond is not only released, but the roof is also lubricated with meltwater. The entire drag load now is experienced by the cohesive bond at the ridge, which is too weak, and thus, the avalanche occurs.

    Is This A Particular Concern on Metal Roofs?

    Well, metal roofing is a good choice in any climate because of its durability and expected service life of more than 50 years. Notably, a characteristic of the metal is that it has a low coefficient of friction. So, in simple terms, it’s a slippery slope, and due to this, snow and ice are prone to sliding off unexpectedly. While this may seem to many people to be a desirable thing, it can also be a nuisance and even a danger.

    Snow guards must be installed on a metal roof to prevent snow avalanches and sudden snow falls.

    How Do Snow Guards Work on a Metal Roof?

    When snow guards are installed on an inclined metal roof, they serve as anchors and prevent snow sheets from skidding off the roof. In addition, snow guards not only help to evenly distribute the weight of ice and snow on the roof but also assist in preventing possible damage or accidents that may result from the sudden fall of the snow sheets.

    If you are looking for durable and affordable snow guards for metal roofs in Edmonton, we offer our custom made galvanized steel and pre-painted steel, both of which are available in standard thicknesses of 24, 26 inches, and many other sizes.

      I was tired of dealing with shingles blowing off so I had made my mind up to go with metal. I contacted several roofing companies for estimates to repair my roof after wind damaged my asphalt roofing. We chose AMT because we liked their product and they were cost competitive. Metal roofing is not cheap but it is a long.... term solution. We will never have to re-roof or repair our roof for as long as we live. Tony was very professional and provided a clear estimate and explained the process well. The crew was respectful and cleaned up well after the project. I am very pleased. Thanks Tony and the whole gang. Well done

      Tony Brodeskur was such a great help educating us on our new metal roofing, the quality of AMT installers and the product, prices and warranty. From date of deposit to the date of install was incredibly fast. The AMT installers were extremely efficient, professional, courteous and organized. After completion, the crew cleaned up our yard, just like they were never there except I now have an amazing looking, high quality roof. I would refer AMT to anyone if they need a roof. Thank you Tony and the whole crew for your services.

      Amazing product. Tony was exceptional, taking time to explain the product and to keep in touch. Benjamin and his crew were on time and efficient. This was a huge investment but, well worth it. I never need to worry about my roof again and my small bungalow really stands out in the neighborhood. I would recommend this company and the product to anyone.

      We had a favorable impression of AMT Metal Roofing from the get-go. Tony Brodeskur (ATM) was the first answer our request for a quote and came in with a favorable price. They were swift to come and inspect this sizable job, about 27,000 sq. ft of metal roof replacement, and started with the work immediately. Everything was completed as promised. This company is very professional in every aspect. The crew was working with great pride and did a commendable and complete job considering the many dormers we have on the hotel. They showed respect for our operation and always left the workplace clean. Thank you, Tony, Ben and crew, for a job well done – it was a very pleasant experience – we are happy to recommend AMT Roofing to anyone and for any job, large or small.

      I own a 1950's home with an old style metal roof. It was a challenge to find a company that could/would install snow breakers in the Edmonton area. After getting a couple of quotes, I went with AMT and am thrilled with the service from start to finish. I spoke with Vlad early on a Monday morning, he did a site visit later that morning and then I received an electronic quote later that same day. The job was completed by Wednesday afternoon of that same week. Great work/service in an incredibly short period of time. I highly recommend AMT Roofing.

      AMR wasn't the cheapest company that I got quotes from, but I'm glad I trusted them for this project. Spend the extra money if you have to, you'll thank me.They spent 11 days at my house making it perfect and clearly went above and beyond on several items that were out of scope that they could have billed me for but just did it anyway. I couldn't be more pleased.Tony, the project manager/ estimator was super personable, extremely responsive and put me at ease with every concern I had.

      After getting several quotes for metal roofs I decided to go with AMT. These guys were impressive from the day they provided an estimate till the post-installation final inspection. Very reasonable pricing and superior product quality.

      These guys really deserve the 5 Star rating. The work is top notch, everyone I have dealt with has been extremely professional, and they are very honest with their pricing. Tony the sales guy was great to deal with answered all our questions and even got our eves-troughs done at the same time. I can't remember the name of the foreman that came to do the work but the entire crew was very well run. They cleaned up after themselves so well that if they didn't leaves signs and a new roof you wouldn't have even known they were there.

      Living in Yellowknife there aren’t any local options to find suppliers for metal roofs. AMT Roofing was recommended to us as a company that would provide a quality product for a competitive price. Easy and approachable customer service. Very happy overall.

Our metal roofing systems are engineered to withstand the toughest degrees of stress, all while helping you save money and contributing to keeping our planet green. Metal roofing is the best solution for any commercial or industrial roofing project.

      When events that are out of your control hit your home or building, it’s stressful. Luckily, metal roofing is a solution for this stress. A hail storm that would have destroyed your shingle roof won’t even dent up your metal tiles, and fire resistant metal means you’re less likely to lose your home if your neighbour’s house goes up in flames.

      Maintaining a shingle roof can be exhausting. You don’t want to invest your time in the fix-ups and maintenance, but you have no choice.

You’ll never have to break out the ladder and climb up to your roof again!

      People pay more for quality and reliability. The same is true when you add a metal roof to your house. Plus, AMT Metal Roofing warranties are fully transferable.

      Insurance companies base their premiums on risk factors. Metal roofing lowers the risk to your home or building, which in turn lowers your insurance premiums. Always be sure to update your insurance company once the AMT Metal Roofing team has completed your new roof so you can enjoy great savings on your insurance for decades to come.

      AMT Metal Roofing’s products are environmentally friendly and sustainable. You won’t get shingles blowing away to become garbage in your yard and community, and you won’t have to head to the landfill with your old shingles. Our metal roofing is completely recyclable, and is made using recycled metal. We’re committed to making a positive impact on our world and helping our clients reduce their carbon footprints.

      While asphalt shingles draw in and store heat and cold, metal tiles expel heat and cold quickly. This means a more even temperature inside all year round, even in Alberta’s rapidly shifting weather. Of course, better insulation also means more money saved on heating and air conditioning! You’ll feel a big difference in your utility bills each month.

      Mold is caused by water, and thanks to a watertight seal in your metal tiles, there won’t be water collecting under your roof. Plus, a ventilated air space between your roof and ceiling mean any moisture can evaporate easily. This means you won’t have to worry about mold breaking down your roof and ruining your home. Breathe easier and safer under a roof that won’t endanger your family or pets, and won’t cause damage.
