Tips for Preventing Gutter Damage

May 21, 2019

Gutters channel water away from your home to prevent water damage. Clogging can cause water to overflow at the sides of the gutters and collect around your home’s foundation. This can weaken the foundation over time, leading to serious structural damage.

In today’s post, your leading provider of aluminum gutters, Gutter Helmet® of Eastern NY, shares tips on preventing gutter damage.

Hail Damage – You definitely need a highly durable gutter system if your area experiences hail. Thick metallic gutters prevent hail from inflicting damage. Make sure to have the brackets inspected and replaced if needed before the storm season.

Snow Damage – Your gutters have the tendency to expand and crack when water freezes inside them. Invest in the Helmet Heat® Ice Reduction System from Gutter Helmet of Eastern NY to ensure ice doesn’t build up in your gutters. This product melts ice in gutters and downspouts for proper water flow and reduces ice damage to your home. It’s also important to keep your attic well-insulated to prevent the formation of ice dams.

Water Damage – Standing water can damage your gutters. Trim overhanging tree branches that cast shade on your gutters, as direct sunlight helps moisture evaporate faster, keeping your gutters dry. Also, adding coats of water-resistant paint can prevent your gutters from cracking.

Clogged Gutters – A gutter cap keeps debris out of your gutters, lowering your gutter maintenance costs. With a gutter protection system, you don’t need to clean your gutters as often.

Overflowing Gutters – Check your gutters for accumulation of debris. Gutter guards can prevent debris buildup, reducing the risk of overflowing gutters. In addition, poor workmanship often results in overflowing gutters.

A quality gutter filter helps in keeping your gutters and home protected from damage. Choose Gutter Helmet of Eastern NY for your gutter protection system.
