One of the known effects of climate change is increased global temperatures. Precipitation, which includes rain, snow and hail, is highly dependent on temperature. As a result, global warming greatly affects the water cycle.

 

As global temperatures steadily increase, precipitation patterns, volume and frequency drastically change. This is because more evaporation occurs and warmer air holds more moisture. As a result, we see more intense downpours. 

Gutter Helmet of Michigan, your source for top-notch gutter protection service in the area, shares how these intense downpours can take a toll on your gutters.

Size Matters

Improperly sized gutters may not be able to handle the huge volume of water from heavy downpours. As these heavy rains are expected to be the norm in the years to come, you may want to consider upsizing or replacing your gutters.

Clogging Makes Things Worse

Clogged gutters are unable to channel water to the downspouts and away from the home. Furthermore, clogged gutters can handle less water than unclogged ones, so they will fill up with water faster. The weight of the water can eventually damage the gutters and water will overflow and seep through the components of the roof and home.

Damage Control

During a heavy downpour, problems with your gutter system are bound to show themselves. You can spot which areas need attention. You can also judge the condition of your gutters and finally decide to replace it and get new gutter protection.

With Gutter Helmet of Michigan’s products and services, your home can have a gutter system that can withstand the effects of climate change.
