How Gutter Helmet® Prevents Decay Due to Water Damage

September 05, 2018

Sometimes, the biggest problem with gutter damage is rot affecting your home. When mold, for example, grows on the wood decking, it can eat away at the structure. This comes from prolonged moisture exposure. If left unchecked, it can cause serious and expensive damage.

Learn how Gutter Helmet® of Eastern NY can prevent this using our Gutter Helmet® systems.

The Causes and Effects of Wood Rot

The main reason moisture stagnates in this area in the first place is due to debris. When different things like leaves and shingle granules build up along the gutter, they form a blockage. This can make it tougher to flush out water from the gutter system. When this happens, it also means water, instead of being drained properly, overstays its welcome, which might find its way to your roof or your walls. Saturate these areas with water enough and they become weakened.

Different areas of your home are affected as a result. First is the roof itself. As the closest structure to the gutter system, it can get serious leaking damage that leads to rot. This can affect the soffit and fascia the most since both are typically made of wood and the part of the roof where the gutters are attached. While getting replacement gutters solves the structural problem, it leaves the question as to how you can avoid the same damage to your new gutters.

The Power of Gutter Helmet

This is where Gutter Helmet is useful. When you get our Gutter Helmet product, you’re actually signing up for low-maintenance, long-term protection. Our products are designed to filter debris from water by utilizing a simple nose-forward design and the principle of surface tension. As a result, refuse just slides and falls off the roof to the ground, but water goes directly to the gutters.

Let Gutter Helmet of Eastern NY help you assess the condition of your gutters. We offer gutter protection to prevent rot and other issues, including leaks and weight overload, and heated gutters that are useful in cold seasons.
