For years now, scientists and experts alike have been tirelessly working to warn us of the dangers of climate change. It’s already been scientifically proven that climate change is real. It is also an undeniable fact that climate change has an effect on just about everything on this planet, from the entire ecosystem, weather patterns and yes, even your gutter shield system.



Today’s blog post tackles how climate change affects your gutters, and what you can do to mitigate the damage.

Unpredictable Weather

Extreme and unpredictable weather is one of the more apparent effects of climate change. Erratic atmospheric conditions take a toll on your gutters in the form of copious amounts of rain, hail and debris. More blockage means you’ll have to clean your gutters more often. You can’t prevent storms, but you can invest in a gutter protection system that will guard your gutters against debris.

Wear and Tear

The amount of rainfall will also take a toll on your gutter system, making it more susceptible to breakage. Climate change can hasten the deterioration of your gutters. Let’s face it, gutters can be expensive. Not all homeowners will be able to immediately afford a replacement every time the existing gutter gives out. So before the storms hit, make sure your gutters can withstand heavy rains and torrential downpours.

Peeling Paint

Gutters play a small but important role in maintaining your home’s curbside appeal. All these changes in the weather, going from warm to cold to warm again, affect the paint on your gutters. You may notice peeling, cracking, warping and even chipping on your gutters due to the erratic changes in the temperature.

Your gutters need a little extra help to be able to cope with the various effects of climate change. Aside from doing your part to be a little more environmentally conscious, now is also a good time to invest in a gutter shield system that can withstand extreme weather.
