Gutters are essential parts of your roofing system. These exterior components help protect your home from water damage and direct water away from the foundation. It makes perfect sense then for homeowners to keep their gutter system clog-free. Lack of gutter maintenance can only lead many more problems that can affect your home’s structural integrity.

In today’s blog post, Gutter Helmet® of Western North Carolina, one of the most trusted gutter guard companies in the area, shares the common problems that stem from lack of gutter maintenance.

Sagging Gutters

Gutters are designed to carry only a specific amount of rainwater. When the system is clogged, the extra weight of the excess debris causes the system to pull away from the roof. Sagging gutters won’t only raise structural concerns but also aesthetic problems.

Clogged Gutters

Dirt that has settled in your gutters can lead to improper water flow. Leaves, twigs and pine needles are among the most common causes of clogging in gutter systems. Homeowners should not turn a blind eye to the debris settling in the gutter.

To avoid gutter clogging problems, we offer an innovative gutter protection system. Gutter Helmet is a gutter guard that keeps debris out of the system while falling harmlessly to the ground. More importantly, it can handle up to  22 inches of rain per hour, which is twice the amount of the highest recorded rainfall in the U.S. It also comes with heavy-duty brackets to support the system.

Water Leaks

Water can still seep through even the tiniest gaps. When your gutters leak, it’s best to ask your gutter guard company to patch the problem areas. This way you can avoid water damage to your home.
