Roof Snow Retention Is Our Only Focus

Protect People & Property!

Our Roof Snow Retention Systems Help...

  • Prevent dangerous "avalanching" of snow & ice 
  • Prevent ice "damming" build-up at roof's edge
  • Prevent damage to gutters & eaves
  • Match snow retention to your roof type
  • Provide durable, long-lasting protection

Keep Roof Snow In Its Place

Roof snow guards and snow fences are designed to help keep snow on your roof, helping to prevent sudden, potentially dangerous releases of snow and ice. These specially-designed metal devices are mounted directly to the roof structure, forming barriers and adding extra friction to keep snow in place until it can safely melt and dissipate.

Rocky Mountain Snow Guards, Inc. is a full service roof snow guard manufacturer and distributor. Our in-house design & layout experts are committed to helping you find the best snow retention system for any roof type.

Snow retention systems attach to roofs and prevent roof avalanches.

S-5 Colorgard is a great system!

I'm a DIY homeowner and just installed the S-5 colorgard system on 1" standing seam roof.  Follow the online design tool and install is a bit tedious, but the final product is fantastic.  This appears to be a great, universally applicable system!

"Thanks for all of your help. You really went above and beyond."

We had the S-5 snow guards installed on our building last year and the snow guards appear to be doing their job.  We had about 5 feet of snow around December 24th and 25th and enough stayed on the roof to allow us to keep the walkways clear.  We didn’t have the 6 to 12 foot pile of snow from snow sliding off the metal roof that we experienced without the snow guards.

"I just finished installing our new Snow Guard system at our home and I am quite pleased. I received everything I ordered, I had the right amount of parts for the job, the system you sold me is in my opinion, very well made, and the installation was straight forward. I did the entire job by myself. So, thanks for your assistance."

Customer - Boulder, Colorado

Well designed. Well made.

I looked at a lot of options for snow guards and decided to go with S5!. I was glad I did. The installation was straight forward and the product is well designed and well made. All the pieces work well together.

Single Ply Colorgard Bracket / System  ~~  Good product for membrane roof

I used these to add snow bars to a membrane roof with slight pitch. In MA winters, the snow ices up then slides off the edge of the roof. I installed with #14 screws. I was able to hit rafters with one pair of screws, and the other 3 screws went into plywood only. Very sturdy assembly, it's not going anywhere no matter the load.

"I had bought some roofguards from you last fall. Just wanted you to know that they worked perfectly on my roof all winter, they did the job they were designed to do and I wanted to thank you...

I am very happy with the outcome."

Bob P.
Customer - Maine

Good product, great seller!

Used to mount XR10 IronRidge rails for a solar panel install on a metal standing seam room. Very easy to install and heavy duty. Sent a sample free of charge so I could test the fit beforehand and have the best retail price I could find anywhere!

Long Lead Time

Lead times are very long for an item that should be readily available. Maybe due to current supply chain issues, but you should let customers know the estimated delivery times when order is placed. Other than lead time, product is good and fairly priced.

"Great product and great customer service.  Shipment was split by accident by shipper but you guys were all over it!

Parts were as ordered and great design and construction.  I will order again."

S-5 ColorGard Bar is easy to install and works great.  The best I have seen in 35 years of construction.

David J

Nice snow bars

Good product, easy install.  Wish I had more snow on the roof to test it.

Robert B.

The system arrived today safe and sound.  I showed it to the roofer and both of us are pleased.  The Snow Clip III works great in the center slot and I think the system will be a breeze to install.  The roofer plans to eventually use it on his house and I believe he will recommend it to other standing seam jobs he sells. The wide range of S5 clamps makes the Colorgard system simple to adapt to other rib configurations.  Thanks!

"Thank you so very much!  This is by far the best quote we’ve seen for snow retention in terms of the detail/drawings."

5/5 stars - Easy to work with.

Great people, good product

Leigh S.
Colorado Customer

"Rocky Mountain Snow Guards is #1! These guys are great and customer service is really solid. As a roofing contractor, snow retention is a big part of our business, but is so technical we could never learn all there is to know about it in a lifetime. Lars and the crew at RMSG help fill that gap.

5/5 stars and 2 enthusiastic thumbs up!!!!"

Thank you for your assistance, your team's response has been prompt and professional. Business transactions don’t happen flawlessly very often these days. I’m confident your product will be as impressive as your customer service.  Merry Christmas!

Last year we had lots of issues with snow falling off our roof. Our snow guards were installed this fall and we're so happy with them. The difference is night and day. Last year anyone walking near our roof could get walloped with a big load of snow. This year it stays in place and melts slowly as the temperature rises. We are so happy! We highly recommend Rocky Mountain Snow Guards!

Laura D

Sent exactly what I ordered and got it shipped out in a timely fashion.

Mark H.

Very good, but not swaged

Good quality product, nicely packed and quickly shipped. Installation was straightforward. Kept the snow on my roof just as intended this year, and we had quite a bit of it.

ST11 Snow Guards on Brava Tile

Looking for a custom look for a custom project.  The snow guards look good and work good.  I would not say they work great, but we did not overload the project with them.
