Forum Title: Snowgaurds on an Epdm roof?
I have a customer with 2 lowslope dormers above a 1920?s Ludowici tile roof. the dormers are about 2/12 and currently have .060 EPDM on them. customer informs me that the past 2 winters large piles of ice would ?avalanche? off the dormers-crashing down onto the tiles underneath. we will be repairing an awning and doing extensive repairs to the tile roof shortly-and the customer would like some type of snow gaurd installed on the EPDM roof. Personally- I have a hard time imagining ice and snow sliding on a 2/12?I suspect it is more in line with icecicles breaking loose from the eaves-but customer swears it is sliding off the roof- he can hear a long slide for several seconds before the crash. any suggestions?? I certainley prefer not to puncture the membrane. thinking in terms of a painted aluminum angle iron or aluminum-slightly elevated on pads-and attached to the barge boards with 2 discretely painted brackets??
