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

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

50+ Snow Management Solutions for ALL Roof Types

What makes Alpine SnowGuards the industry leader in snow management? Experience. Dedication. Precision-based knowledge. Foresight. Brian Stearns, the President and Founder of Alpine SnowGuards started his roofing career in the slate roofing industry in the 1970’s.  As his career expanded, Brian began making his own snow guards due to the fact that he couldn’t find a design rugged enough for the slate roofing projects he was KEEP READING

How do I know what style snow guard I need?

For those of us who live in locations that receive any amount of snow during the course of the winter (even in the autumn and spring up here in our neck of the woods), managing rooftop snow is essential in protecting the areas immediately surrounding our homes and businesses, where people walk and play, where animals live, where our expensive landscaping resides, and where our cars KEEP READING

Worth a Thousand Words

446 words – that’s how long the body of this post is….but it’s worth a thousand. Every few months we compile all of the installation images our customers send us. We’ve received a lot recently, for both EcoFasten Solar and Sister Company Alpine SnowGuards. It’s always an amazing feeling to see your company’s products attached to the most important part of a building.  And it’s also KEEP READING

5 Reasons Your Company Should Be at the 2015 International Roofing Expo

The International Roofing Expo (IRE) has grown considerably in the past few years.  Vegas was the venue in 2014, and what a show it was, with 9,568 attendees – the largest attendance in the show’s history! This year the show is headed to New Orleans, and will run from February 24th through February 26th.  As I glanced through the Exhibitor listing it was clear that the roofing KEEP READING

Winter Storm Juno – Not Your Gutters BFF

Let me first start by saying that I’m not a big fan of the meteorologists of the world naming winter storms.  I don’t know why it bothers me…maybe because I’m a lifelong Vermonter, and storms are par for the course?  I don’t know the reason, but I do know that I’m happy we were spared from the brunt of Juno.  Early on, my favorite local weatherman KEEP READING

A Marriage of Sun and Snow

Sister Companies Alpine SnowGuards and EcoFasten Solar work very closely together – in fact, the birth of EcoFasten Solar was made possible entirely due to the existence of Alpine SnowGuards. Formed in 1998, Alpine SnowGuards very quickly became the industry leader in snow management systems.  Being founded by a former roofer provided the knowledge and precision-based skills needed to engineer systems that would not only work, but KEEP READING
