3 Common Gutter Problems Prevented by Gutter Helmet

By May 24, 2016October 18th, 2023No Comments

We can install a gutter protection system that can help prevent many common gutter problems. The Gutter Helmet system can protect your gutters from leaves and debris and reduce your gutters’ maintenance requirements. Gutter Helmet of Northern Minnesota talks about common gutter problems and how we can help.

Clogged Gutters

If your gutters are open, they are susceptible to clogging. Leaves and debris can enter your gutters and accumulate. This will block the flow of water through your gutters, leading to rainwater overflowing. This can lead to several problems, including damaged landscaping and stained siding. As expert installers of the best gutter system in Grand Rapids MN, and the surrounding areas, we recommend getting Gutter Helmet.

Gutter Helmet prevents clogs as it completely covers your gutters. This blocks leaves and debris from getting in, while allowing water to reach your gutters. It achieves this through the principle of surface tension. Rainwater will cling to Gutter Helmet’s Nose-Forward™ design and flow directly into your gutters. Meanwhile, debris and leaves fall to the ground, since Gutter Helmet extends over your roof’s edge.

Sagging Gutters

Excess weight and deteriorated fascia can cause gutters to sag or pull away from the house. Both these problems stem from clogged gutters, which are heavy and put a lot of strain on your fasteners. The deterioration of the fascia makes things worse. Moisture can damage your fascia because of rainwater overflowing from clogged gutters. This rainwater can splash onto the fascia and damage it. Gutter Helmet prevents this from happening.

Downspouts That Have Come Loose

Gutter clogs can cause another problem. Your downspouts can break loose between sections or from the gutter outlet. This happens when leaves, dirt, or debris clog the elbows between the sections. A loose downspout is trouble because rainwater ends up in places where it shouldn’t. This rainwater can saturate the soil around your foundation and cause it to crack. To enjoy the best gutter system in Grand Rapids MN, and the surrounding areas, protect it with Gutter Helmet.

Gutter Helmet will reduce your system’s maintenance requirements while boosting its performance. You’ll no longer need to worry about cleaning and clearing clogged gutters again. We have over 50 years combined experience installing the Gutter Helmet system. This level of experience ensures that we can provide you with a hassle-free Gutter Helmet installation.
