Snow Guards + Snow Fences = Smart Decision
Nestled amidst stunning mountain peaks and world-famous ski conditions, Fleur du Lac Estates near Lake Tahoe can experience heavy snowfall during the winter months. The property is just five minutes from Homewood Mountain Ski Resort, and the area usually sees snow in excess of 180 inches total. That’s one reason why the community decided to incorporate snow fences and snow guards from Rocky Mountain Snow Guards into their newly-reroofed structures.
The previous buildings at Fleur du Lac Estates didn’t have any type of snow retention system. When the community added DaVinci Roofscapes composite shake tiles this past year, they decided to make life easier for everyone by adding snow guards.
Rocky Mountain Snow Guards custom designed the snow retention system for Fleur du Lac Estates incorporating both their Drift III+ snow fences and the company’s Rocky Guard RG10 snow guards. The system was developed to handle the 180 PSF snow load that can occur in this geographic location.
