NEW! Alpine LedgeGuard Mitigates the Risk of Falling Ice and Snow

When I started working with the team here at Alpine SnowGuards back in 2013, I could tell within the first few moments of walking in the door that this was a company that fosters innovation. Watching the product lifecycle in process was exciting (and still is)! Over the years, I’ve witnessed countless custom designs come to fruition, first on paper, then via a 3D printed model KEEP READING

Shingle Roofs Need Snow Guards, Too!

It’s funny in the snow guard world. A huge focus goes to metal standing seam, membrane, slate, tile and even solar, while Comp Shingle is standing over there saying, “heyyyyy! What about me?” It strikes me as comical because shingle roofs need snow guards, too! 70% of single-family homes in the US are roofed in shingles! It makes sense, right?

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

Project Photo Series: Spotlight on PP235LS

I think probably the coolest thing about my job here at Alpine SnowGuards is the interaction and partnerships we have with our clients. I don’t mean that in a broad, general sort of way, I mean truly, real connections. Maybe it’s because I’m an extrovert. Maybe it’s because I love meeting new people. Maybe it’s because I’m the baby of 9 kids. Or maybe it’s a KEEP READING
