Even when you have the best rain gutter system at home, it is important that you have a gutter protection system installed as well. It protects not just your gutters, but also the other components of your home. It helps prevent all the various problems resulting from clogs and overflowing water. Gutter Helmet® Piedmont, one of the top gutter guard dealers in the area, explains this further below.

Water Damage Due to Clogged Gutters

Leaves, twigs and other wind-driven debris tend to collect on the metal channels of the gutter system, impeding the flow of rainwater during downpours. When this happens, the other areas of your home may suffer from damage.

For one, the weight of the water may cause the gutters to detach from the roofline. As this happens, the water spills over the sides, saturating the soil of your lawn or landscaping. Apart from an unsightly facade, water pooling exposes your home’s foundation to potential cracks that are both costly to repair and can result in moisture penetrating your home’s basement.

Clogged gutters can also cause water damage on other areas of your home, including the wooden components of the roof, particularly the fascia, as well as the window frames and siding. Moisture can seep through the tiniest cracks, resulting in the growth and spread of mold. Significant damage can even decrease the home’s energy efficiency.

Avoiding Water Damage With Gutter Helmet®

With the installation of Gutter Helmet, you avoid from all of these issues. Thanks to its innovative nose-forward design and a textured, ribbed surface, rainwater clings to the cover’s surface and goes into the gutters’ metal channels. Debris carried by the water falls to the ground. No clogs can ever form and hinder the flow of rainwater to your downspouts.
