3 Handy Tips in Maintaining a Healthy Gutter System

By April 24, 2017October 18th, 2023No Comments

Gutters have an essential role to play in preserving your home’s structural integrity. By channeling water into your drainage system, they protect your roof, foundation, and landscaping. However, their open nature leaves them susceptible to congestion. This is why it’s important to keep them in top condition through the seasons to prevent costly problems to occur.

You can rely on Gutter Helmet® of Northern Minnesota to preserve your gutters’ perfomance and health for years to come. We install Gutter Helmet, the best alternative for gutter screens. Here are some gutter maintenance tips to keep in mind.

Schedule a Routine Cleaning

Leaving your gutters clogged can put you and your home at risk. Due to debris buildup, the water can spill over the sides and affect the vulnerable components of your home’s exterior. Furthermore, the stagnant water can attract mold growth, which may aggravate some health conditions. Since gutter cleaning is a tedious task, doing it on your own makes you prone to accidents. Turn to a professional to clean your gutters at least twice a year, preferably during spring and fall.

Repair Issues Immediately

Overflowing water can grow into a major problem when left neglected. As soon as you notice this, have an expert to fix it promptly to keep your home free from water damage. They will also inspect your gutter system for other issues, like improper alignment and loosening fasteners.

Invest in a Gutter Protection System

To make your gutters virtually maintenance-free, it’s best to install a gutter protection system. It keeps the system clog-free so water can flow smoothly into the downspouts. Gutter Helmet, the top alternative for gutter screens, has innovative qualities to maintain your gutters’ efficiency. It comes with a small slit and a unique nose-forward design to block leaves, twigs, and other debris out of the system. Furthermore, it comes with a textured surface for added surface tension. This allows water to cling well onto the material as it enters your gutters. Thanks to its sturdy construction, it will withstand rough conditions to keep your gutters intact through the years.
