Success Stories

This project exemplifies the process of successfully designing and installing a snow retention system. By leaning on Berger's experience and knowledge, the installer was able to complete the project with confidence and provide the homeowner with peace-of-mind knowing the system will perform for years to come.

When selecting a snow retention system, it is important to consider the following criteria: safety, budget and aesthetics. Knowing this, be sure to consider which guards will best reduce snow and ice slides, understand your client's budget and what products best fit their specific needs and determine whether the selection visually complements the project design.

  • Installer contacted metal roofing supplier regarding snow retention system recommendation
  • Roofing manufacturer recommended Berger Building Products and connected installer with a Berger sales representative
  • An snow retention layout was completed via Layout Request
  • Berger recommended a SL1 Snow Meister system
  • Installer re-submitted roof plan 3 times, as project designs changed
  • Berger revised recommendation 3 times which included a complete system layout with a total count of recommended guards to complete the system
  • Conversations took place regarding proper installation, tips and overall insight shared
  • Order was placed and color matched for metal roofing panel
  • Snow guards were shipped within specified lead time
  • Both installer and homeowner were satisfied

Overall, this was a seamless process - even including the 3 revisions. By securing snow guards via Berger, not only was product secured but much needed application experience was accessed and used.
