Your next question is: “what type of snow guards are out there for me and my roof?” Well, Buchner Manufacturing (BMI) offers a wide range of snow guards to suit any style of roofing, aluminum/steel shingles, standing seam roofing, or even for corrugated roofing panels. As listed below:

The RT Mini Clear snow guards can be used on any style of roofing that BMI offers.

The Resisto Snow Shoe is versatile style of snow guard and like the RT mini it can be used on any style of roofing that BMI offers.
