left field Posted October 23, 2018 Share Posted October 23, 2018 I'm getting conflicting info. Does anyone have experience with these? I have a shed roof on my cabin - 36' feet from peak to bottom. About 24' from the peak is a metal chimney with two supports rods. There is a seam across the roof about 4' above the chimney. Last year, the snow ripped out one of the supports and damaged the chimney, so I need to protect it. Not concerned about snow falling below as it isn't a walkway. Three pieces of advice: two rows of staggered poly guards above the chimney and support (roofer advice) three rows of staggered poly guards across the span of the roof to ensure that the snow load doesn't "hinge" at the last guard and take out the support (supplier advice) rail across the bottom of the roof (below the chimney) to keep all the snow on the roof until it melts (chimney installer advice) Any thoughts?
