Gutters work to protect your home from water damage by directing rainwater away. One of the biggest threats to your gutters is rusting. How exactly can you prevent your gutters from rusting? Gutter Helmet® Systems of Alabama, the premier source of the best gutter protection in the area, shares some tips below.

1. Clean your gutters. Rust forms in gutters when water pools inside them. Pooling water is caused by congestion, which occurs when leaves, pine needles and other debris accumulate inside the gutter system. You need to clean your gutters regularly to prevent this. By keeping your gutters clear of debris, water will flow smoothly through the system instead of backing up inside. 

2. Invest in a gutter protection system. Because congestion is the primary reason for rust formation in gutters, you should make sure the system is clean and intact all the time. Gutter cleaning works, but it’s time consuming and tedious. If you want a more convenient and equally effective solution, you should consider investing in gutter covers. Gutter Helmet Systems of Alabama can help you with this. We are your go-to company for the best gutter protection in the area–Gutter Helmet. 

Gutter Helmet features an exclusive nose-forward design that allows only water to enter the system. Everything else, such as leaves and other debris, is filtered out and falls harmlessly to the ground. By preventing clogs–which allow for pooling water inside the system–Gutter Helmet can keep your gutters healthy and rust-free.

3. Have your gutters inspected. Sometimes, water backs up inside your gutters because the system is not sloped properly. If your gutters are clean and water is still pooling in them, contact a roofer to inspect the system and provide a solution.
