If snow builds up, it should be removed by the home owner as soon as possible. This completes the chimney protection. This is my current formula for steep steel roofs. For some reason, not all similar situations are created equal. Some home owners seem to have no trouble at all, while others have their chimney's unceremoniously removed annually. Maybe a north facing roof tends to have greater accumulation? It is not an exact science. It is true that these features add a cost to the installation. It is the home owner's decision alone to bear this extra fee. This illustration is to aid them with that decision. It remains the homeowner's responsibility to monitor weather conditions and remove snow accumulations as necessary.
This customer came home to find his chimney in the back yard. The top was completely sheared off. There were some small plastic wedges screwed on the roof to hold the snow back, but they broke off. We replaced the crushed chimney piece (at the roof-line) and installed this 'Heavy Duty Ice & Snow Guard'.
