A but no you don't have me hahahahaha cause we have a covered porch and which could easily take on any ice remember we bought a house that was built by Simcoe housing, which means that is something they would have been worried about even with shingles up there so we're good. Plus as others are saying there is ice blocks and you just put in heating coils along the bottom to make sure nothing can build up.Which means it'll hang up there until somebody exits the front door....
About metal + lack of snow blockers gutters is the least of your concerns.
At the rental the one neighbour actually had a really cheap metal roof installed without snow barriers...
1. The roofer put it right OVERTOP the old shingles didn't remove them
2. millions of nails jumped the fence into my yard
3. the very first winter the houses were so close (infill on 1950 neighbourhood) that the snow coming off his roof would jump the fence and land on the path on the side of my house. Come down with so much force and pack so hard that if it ever hit someone would easily send them to the hospital. We had a little chat and he had the roofer come back and address that as soon as the weather allowed in the spring.
Or you could pull up a couple pavers and concrete in the pipe too. Cut the pavers around the pipe. I have a few ideas for that if you go that route.Yeah thats a good idea, only thing is that its a patio, so pavers as a floor. I suppose that I could get some tapcon screws and secure it to one of the bricks..
