This paper presents results of research conducted as part of doctoral dissertation. It deals with pitched roofs defects and failures caused by insufficient snow protection. It also assesses the most common snow retention systems in Slovakia in terms of holding strength and reliability. Selected snow retention systems that are used for different types of roofing were loaded by forces in a direction parallel to the roofing. Paper evaluates all tested snow retention systems and indicates their weaknesses. This paper also deals with friction coefficient between snow and the most commonly used roofing in Slovakia.
