With record-breaking snowfall in almost every state this season, snow retention is more important than ever. 

During the recent NERCA convention, RoofersCoffeeShop® had the chance to meet up and talk to Mindy Dahlquist of TRA Snow & Sun to find out a little bit about the company and what TRA does. Mindy explained, “TRA is a rooftop snow retention manufacturer. We manufacture in-house, powder coat our systems, engineer them, and then also warrant our systems so that we can take that liability away from the contractor, the homeowner, and put that liability on us to make sure that everyone's just well taken care of.” 

Snow retention in a roofing system is something that people often forget is very important in keeping homes safe and secure. Luckily, word is beginning to spread about the importance of snow retention. Mindy told RCS, “Snow retention is getting big really everywhere. It's been around in Utah, Colorado, Lake Tahoe, the big snow areas for quite some time. But now even when you go to Ohio, Indiana, any of those states, they're receiving so much ice during the snowstorms in the snow season to where that ice is coming off in panels instead, where the snow retention's able to hold that on there and keep it as a safe environment for the homeowners, residents, anyone that's going in and out. And then also saves that structure as well.”  

In conclusion, it is crucial to consider snow retention systems when living in areas impacted by snowfall, regardless of the region. TRA Snow & Sun provides a solution to this issue by manufacturing and engineering their snow retention systems in-house, ensuring safety and liability for both contractors and homeowners. As awareness of the importance of snow retention systems grows, companies like TRA Snow & Sun will continue to play a significant role in keeping homes and communities safe during the winter season.
