A Star-Spangled July Special

Tomorrow is Independence Day. How will you be celebrating? At my house, we’ll go to the town parade, eat some fried dough at the carnival afterwards, head home and swim in the pool (it’s going to be 95° in Vermont tomorrow with no clouds in the sky), cook up some pulled pork and watch the fireworks at dusk. At Alpine SnowGuards, we’re celebrating by offering a KEEP READING

Installation Images: Ask and Ye Shall Receive

Ahhhh. Summer. It’s finally here! We got our first snowfall in October last year, so this has been a long time coming, and, for this lady anyway, it’s a very welcome change. It’s in the late Spring or early Summer that I send one of our, “Do you have install images to share?” emails. You know what they say: Ask and ye shall receive. Let me KEEP READING

Simple Seal is a cone shaped EPDM rubber bushing that was designed specifically to KEEP READING

BIM Me Up, Scotty!

I feel it’s important to first point out that, while the title of this blog post is a play on words from Star Trek, I am not, nor have I ever been, a fan of the show. I think the only reason this is, is because of the fact that I grew up way out in the country, on a 5-mile dirt road, with a rotor KEEP READING

3 Tactics for Safeguarding Endangered Roofs

The roof over your head is the single most important part of your home – it shelters you and protects you from the elements, it needs to be sturdy enough to withstand strong winds, sloped just right to allow for watershed, and in areas that get any amount of snowfall, it must be rugged enough to bear additional weight.

4 Roofing Marvels That Will Cause Your Jaw to Drop

Five years ago I accepted a Marketing position with Alpine SnowGuards (and Sister company EcoFasten Solar), and to say that since then I’ve learned a lot about the roofing industry, would be a HUGE understatement. I swear I’ve learned enough about snow guards, roofing and solar to fill a book, or an “abridged edition” at the very least….and I guarantee that’s just the tip of the iceberg, KEEP READING
