The supplier of a glass roofed conservatory has suggested that a snowboard should be fitted to the house roof in order to protect the conservatory roof from falling snow.

I intend to do this myself before the conservatory is built but there's very little info coming up on a search. Has anyone done this, or know how it is best done?

Snow guards are easy to fit -just screwed to fascia.

Easily available from Roofing Merchants.

Asphaltic are nationwide

Thanks Roofer, I didn't realise they were called snow guards, I'd been searching for 'snow board'.

i would advise fitting through the fascia and into the rafter ends, as you don't want snow, snow guard and fascia board falling onto the connie roof. icon_wink.gif

We have just in time, sucessfully put up our SNOW GUARD. We learned the hard way last year, when two of our conservatory roof panels popped in because of the snow falling off our house roof. Our conservatory runs right across the back of the house so we thought it was going to be an impossible task, but we managed it. We had 3 very large brackets made. Shaped as - up/across/up, at a local fabrication shop from a template we had made out of metal beading used on corners of walls before plastering.we found we could bend it very easily. The brackets were attached to the wall underneath the guttering and facias with 10mm coach bolts. The middle bracket was a little more tricky but can be done by laying scaffy boards on the conservatory roof to stand on. Once all the brackets were fixed, we used 2 16ft decking boards which were screwed into position giving us a 10" wall of wood at the bottom of our house roof to stop the snow avalanching off! I can report it works perfectly.Hope I havent confused too many people........lol
