How Clog-Free Gutters Benefit You and Your Roof

How Clog-Free Gutters Benefit You and Your Roof

August 27, 2018

Good drainage is vital to roof health, which is why your gutters need to be clog-free at all times. If tall trees surround your home, you need to clean your gutters at least twice a year. This task is hazardous by nature, and it’s the opposite of fun.

Low-Maintenance Gutters | Albany, Schenectady, Saratoga Spring, NY

At Gutter Helmet® of Eastern NY, we offer Gutter Helmet systems to prevent clogging effectively. Here’s how a gutter protection system will help keep your roof in its pristine condition:

Keeping Wooden Sections Structurally Sound

Believe or not, clogged gutters and downspouts can cause the water to flow upward. Even if only a small amount of water wicks into the fascia boards, chronic seepage would suffice to sap the strength out of your roof’s framing. When left unchecked, it’s only a matter of time before the sheathing significantly rots away.

Reducing the Chances of Ice Damming

Ice dams are harmful to your roof. Chiefly caused by poor attic ventilation, they contribute to accelerated moisture accumulation and put a lot of stress to your roof with their weight. In addition to upgrading to a heated gutter system, installing protection inhibits ice damming.

Decreasing Maintenance

With a high-quality gutter protection system like Gutter Helmet, you don’t have to worry about cleaning your gutters on your own. The autonomous system will keep your gutters free-flowing no matter what the weather brings, without you having to lift a finger.

Avoiding Liability

Gutter cleaning is an important aspect of roof maintenance, which you are responsible for. In the event of roof storm damage, your insurance company could deny your claim when the investigation reveals that you neglect your responsibility. But with protection, your gutter system will be practically maintenance-free.

Give your gutters the care they need now so they wouldn’t a burden to you going forward. Call Gutter Helmet of Eastern NY, your trusted gutter contractor, at (866) 252-9400 today to schedule your in-home consultation and get a free estimate.
