Are Your Gutters Prepared for Sudden Summer Storms?

While summer is a season for relaxation, family gatherings, trips and holidays, it can also be the season for sudden summer hail storms or worse. Sudden heavy rains or even hail are not unheard of even during the hottest days of summer and poorly-maintained roofing and gutter systems are all but one bad weather condition away from complete failure.

Gutter Helmet® gutter guards can help protect your home from water damage caused by an unexpected rain shower. Let our professionals at Gutter Helmet of Western NC show you a few ways how you can minimize the impact of a sudden summer storm.

Having a reliable water redirection system is your first line of defense against foundation issues in your home. With the protection of a Gutter Helmet system, your gutters and downspouts are better-equipped at handling large amounts of water flow and channeling them to a proper drainage site away from your home.

Too much water is known to cause foundation troubles, stained siding panels, and even leaks and roofing problems among other things.
