Gutter Helmet Can Prevent Costly Foundation Damage

By December 16, 2016October 18th, 2023No Comments

Making sure that their gutters are clean and clear is an essential part of every homeowner’s maintenance plan. Clogged gutters can lead to a variety of problems, including landscape damage, roof leaks, and ice dams. In fact, clogged gutters can cause damage to your foundation.

Gutter Helmet®

Fortunately, Spokane Rain Gutter can prevent this costly problem. We can install the best alternative to a leaf filter in Spokane Valley, WA, and the local areas: Gutter Helmet.

Clogged Gutters Can Lead to a Cracked Foundation

Ideally, your gutters will capture all the water that hits your roof and redirect it safely away from your home. Unfortunately, gutter clogs prevent this from happening, causing water to pool and overflow. This is a major problem because during a rainstorm gallons of water hit your roof. This can saturate the soil surrounding your foundation. This soil puts tremendous pressure on the sides of your home and can cause cracks to form in your basement and foundation.

You should consult us here at Spokane Rain Gutter to provide the top solution to clogging. With our gutter protection system, you can better protect your home without having to maintain your gutters frequently.

Our Solution

Gutter Helmet can prevent this from happening thanks to its innovative design. it completely covers your gutter system, extends over your roof edge, and has no vertical openings. This prevents leaves or any kind of debris from entering and clogging your gutters. Water still enters your gutters, however, thanks to the principle of surface tension. Rain will flow down your roof, cling to Gutter Helmet’s surface, curve over the edge, and enter your gutters.

Our gutter guard has exceptional performance and can withstand any kind of weather. It can handle up to 22 inches of rain per hour, twice the highest ever recorded value by the U.S. Weather Bureau. In addition, we install the system over reinforced heavy gauge aluminum brackets. This reinforces your gutter system and allows it to handle heavy loads and rainfall. Gutter Helmet also features a PermaLife™ Finish that protects the system from acid rain, salt water, and weather damage. This is the leading alternative to a leaf filter in Spokane Valley, WA, and the surrounding areas, because of its reliability, performance, and durability.
