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 READ THE REST….

If you live in or own a building with this type of roofing, and live in an area that receives snow and ice, you’ve probably never experienced a significant roof READ THE REST….
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 READ THE REST….
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 READ THE REST….
