Why Gutter Helmet® Gutter Guards Won’t Affect Your Roof Warranty

We’ve mentioned your roofing warranty in previous blogs and alluded to the fact that some gutter guard companies’ products could potentially void a roof warranty. This is because not all rain gutter covers are made the same way or attach to your roofing system in a manufacturer-approved manner. The last thing you want to do is inadvertently cause damage to your roof and simultaneously void your warranty!

Your Roof, Gutters & Gutter Covers

Ideally, your roof, gutters and gutter covers work together seamlessly to help the water run off your roof and into the downspouts, draining far away from your home’s foundation or basement. Gutters are an important part of your roofing system and when they clog, they can’t do their job. When you have quality rain gutter covers, your gutters should never become clogged and the rainwater should run into the gutters and out the downspoutsm while debris continues over the gutter covers to the ground. Debris shouldn’t collect on the gutter covers or at the end of the roofline. In fact, rain gutter covers shouldn’t negatively affect your roof at all.

Roof Warranty

There are two types of warranties you should have received with your new roof: the manufacturer’s warranty and the installation warranty. Let’s focus on the one from the manufacturer that covers the shingles (or other roofing material). Because some gutter guard companies haven’t met with all the major manufacturers to have their product’s installation approved, you can’t be assured that the installation of all products will not void your manufacturer’s warranty. When you choose Gutter Helmet®, you have the assurance that your roof’s warranty will not be impacted as we have approval for our installation and roofing manufacturers know that Gutter Helmet will never negatively impact the roofing material.

The Gutter Helmet® Guarantee

We guarantee our products and the installation our dealers perform. We are so confident in the approved Gutter Helmet installers we’ve trained that we guarantee that your gutters will remain clog-free. Plus, we know that our patented design – with the ribbed surface intended to help debris flow over the covers – is a superior design to other manufacturers’ gutter covers. And when one of our installers comes to your home on installation day, we’ll clean your gutters prior to installation at no additional charge. If your gutters need any minor repair, we’ll handle that too.

Our written guarantee not only covers you for as long as you own your home, you can transfer it to a second owner. We promise if your gutters ever do become clogged that we’ll remove the cover and clean your gutters and then reinstall it, making any tweaks necessary to prevent future issues.
