Frozen gutters are a common problem for many homeowners during winter. Fortunately, there are ways to keep your gutters from freezing, or at least minimize the chances. From cleaning your gutters to opting for a heated gutter system, you can ensure that your gutters remain in excellent shape despite the harsh winter weather.

MR. FIX-IT™, a reputable provider of gutter guard systems, lists three quick tips on how to avoid the hassle of frozen gutters.

Make Sure You Have Correct Gutter Slope

If your gutters aren’t properly sloped, the system will have difficulty draining water or melted snow. This means that water could potentially accumulate and freeze inside your gutters, adding excessive weight or pressure for long periods. The strain on your gutters could result in structural damage, and this can pose risks for your home.

Clean Your Gutters

The simple task of gutter cleaning can go a long way. By getting rid of debris or fallen leaves, blockages can be prevented. Your gutters can drain properly, and the chances of water pooling or freezing can be reduced. Experts say that the best time to clean your gutters is before winter.

Install Helmet Heat® Ice Reduction System

The Helmet Heat Ice Reduction System offers a long-term solution for preventing frozen gutters. It’s basically a heated gutter system that can melt ice in gutters and downspouts. This enables water to flow efficiently and minimize the risk of ice damage. It is very easy to install, and it works perfectly with new or existing Gutter Helmet® products, such as gutter guard systems.
