Gutters are a component of your home’s roofing system that serves one purpose—to channel water away from your property during times of rain or snow. Funnily enough, they’re also one of the main causes of early roof and home exterior deterioration as a result of water damage.
Gutter Helmet® of Eastern NY, your go-to source of seamless gutters in the area, offers a solution for preventing water penetration. Learn more about SnapLock™ in today’s blog.
Traditional Method of Attaching Gutters
It’s worth noting how gutter installations usually go. Typical gutter attachment involves the use of nails and screws, which help secure the gutters to the roofline or fascia. This setup ensures that both rainwater and snowmelt flow to the downspouts via the trough or metal channel inside the gutters.
This method, however, has been proven to increase the risk of slow but steady failure of the gutter system and its surrounding components. As it turns out, small amounts of water may find their way out of the trough and into the wooden parts of the roof, introducing moisture that can lead to the growth of rot and mold. Not only that, but water seepage can also lead to the accumulation of rust in the gutter system.

SnapLock is a nail-free gutter attachment system that changes the way gutter installation is performed. It utilizes a “no-hole” technology that eliminates the need to penetrate any part of the gutters. This results in a watertight connection between the gutter and the edge of the roof.
