Snow guards are synonymous with traditional slate roofs and have gone back for generations on end. Despite your climate, snow guards are a beautiful addition to any roof; however, if you live in an area that does have notable snowfall, snow guards are almost a must. The functional purpose of snow guards is to hold the snow on your roof until it is able to melt down and come off in the form of water. If all of the snow were allowed to build up and then release at one time, it could have a destructive effect on your roof, potentially rip off gutters and roof ornaments, and most importantly, destroy flowerbeds and landscaping or create a very dangerous hazard to anyone standing below.
