Zaleski Snow Guards

Zaleski Snow Guards has been around since the 1950s. Their snow guard design is based off of distributing snow guards on the roof instead of a row of snow guards or snow rail at the roof eave. Instead, the purpose Zaleski snow guards is to hold the snow on the roof where it falls, then as it warms up the the snow will melt faster. 

Zaleski Snow Guards are attached throughout the U.S. and Canada on all types of roofs. Install Zaleski Snow Guards on rubber, glass, tile, PVC, wood, asphalt, slate and metal roofs using and adhesive sealant, neutral cure, or by screwing the snow guards down. 

They have many types of snow guards. One of their most popular models is Model No. 15. It is a small plastic snow guard that can be purchased clear or colored to match the roof surface (53 colors available click here to be guided to the color chart). Model No. 15 and Model No. 11-B are most commonly installed on metal, rubber, glass and PVC roofs. Other snow guards include Model No. 4, 6, 8, 12 & 13 for slate, asphalt, wood shingle and tile roofs. Lastly, Model No. 7,9 & 14 are installed on copper and other types of roofs.
