Blog New Year, Better Home: How Gutter Helmet® Can Help with Resolutions January 2, 2018March 15, 2018Chelsea WelshHome Improvement The new year offers a clean slate and a chance to accomplish those pesky goals that got away from you the previous year – like home improvement projects. If your New Year’s resolutions include doing a better job of taking care of your home, Gutter Helmet® can help. We’re known for our top-rated gutter guards because of the quality of our product, but you’ll love how you’ll never have to add “clean my gutters” to your new year’s resolution list again! Our gutter guards come in many colors and install directly on your existing gutters. Here are five home improvement-related New Year’s resolutions that Gutter Helmet can help you achieve. 1. Simplify Home Maintenance If you own a home, you know there is a lot of annual maintenance to be done. Why not eliminate one of the more time-consuming and dangerous tasks by installing gutter shields from Gutter Helmet? With our patented gutter guards, rain goes into your gutters while debris flows over them. This means you won’t have to spend another weekend climbing up and down a ladder, removing muck and debris from your gutters. 2. Enjoy a Safer Home Few people realize just what an important role properly functioning gutters play in the safety of a home. Clogged gutters will back up, causing rainwater to pool at the edge of your roof. Eventually, the water can leak into your home, a problem that often goes undetected while mold grows in your walls and ceilings. Other times gutters overflow and run over, resulting in water in your basement or crawl space. When neglected, this can lead to foundation issues over time. Keep your home safe with clean gutters. 3. Prevent Damage A clogged gutter can do damage to your home any time of year. Although ice dams can form for a variety of reasons, a main contributor is clogged gutters. If ice dams form, they can put more weight on your gutters than they were intended to hold and your gutters can become detached from your home. They may fall and damage siding, windows and landscaping below. If your gutters are clogged and full of rainwater in the warmer months, your shingles may sit in the water. Although shingles are meant to get wet, they’re not meant to soak in water for days at a time. This can cause the shingles at your roof’s edge to deteriorate faster than the rest of the roof. 4. Boost Curb Appeal Well-functioning gutters contribute to a crisp, clean aesthetic for your home’s exterior. When you invest in Gutter Helmet, you won’t have to worry about unsightly debris creating an eyesore on your roof, or water damage blemishing your siding and harming your landscape. Ensure great curb appeal with top-rated gutter guards from Gutter Helmet. 5. Increase Home Value Not only will Gutter Helmet benefit you while you live in your home, it’s also advantageous should you ever decide to sell your house. Designed to last a lifetime, the product increases the value of your house and even comes with a warranty that can be transferred to the next owner. If you’re ready to make your home safer, increase its curb appeal and prevent damage, call (800) 824-3772 to schedule an appointment with one of our dealers. You’ll appreciate having more free time in 2018 and for years to come as you enjoy the many benefits of Gutter Helmet gutter guards.
