Blog How Gutter Helmet® Solves Gutter Problems January 11, 2022January 17, 2022Jeremy KelseyGutters A good gutter system is vital to protect your home against rain and water intrusion. It does this by draining and channeling rainwater off your roof and away from the house. This helps protect not only your foundation and landscaping, but also the exterior walls, siding, soffit and fascia from the effects of erosion and water damage. The #1 Gutter Problem When it comes to your gutters, there’s one problem that occurs more than any other: gutter clogging. In areas with deciduous trees that lose their leaves annually, this problem is most prevalent in the fall. If you don’t keep up with necessary gutter maintenance, your gutters and downspouts will become full of leaves, twigs and other tree debris, a combination which can create blockages that prevent water from flowing freely into the downspouts and drains. This will cause water to spill over the sides of the gutters and down the side of the house to the ground, causing water damage to the house and disrupting landscaping. In addition, the weight of the collected debris can put stress on the gutters and cause them to sag, buckle and pull away from the house, resulting in expensive repairs.
