How Gutter Helmet® Just Saved Your Life

By May 21, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

When you think gutters, the element that you most associate with it would be water. After all, it’s what the system is designed to deal with and shunt away. Did you know that your gutters can also be the cause of a fire? Before we can go into specifics, it should be pointed out that incidents like this are especially rare. They are also easy to prevent with a gutter protection system like Gutter Helmet®.

We didn’t start the fire

It’s actually not the gutter itself that causes fire. In reality, it’s the accumulation of dried up leaves and other debris that may catch fire on hot summer days or with an inadvertent spark. It’s a little hard to wrap your mind around something so small possibly causing a lot of damage since it is a very rare occurrence.

But we can stop it

There actually are two ways to go about dealing with this potential problem. The first is to clean your gutters consistently. You can do this yearly or even more frequently, if you notice that your gutters accumulate debris quickly. The second way is to install metal gutter guards in Albert Lea, MN. Home Solutions Midwest, your local gutter experts, advocates the second solution. We know that installing a protection system like ours means never having to worry about debris accumulation ever again.

Here’s how we do it

With over 30 successful years in the business, Gutter Helmet is a solution that many clearly trust. Relying only on simple physics, it provides a way to protect your gutter from clogs and overfills. It goes over your entire gutter, leaving only a tiny slit up front where water—and only water—can slip through. Everything else just slides off your roof where it can be easily swept away. Because of this, no clogging can ever happen; and when no clogs happen, no fires can start either.

Best of all, the system looks great—hiding the troughs and leaving your roof looking smooth. If you’re interested in installing it for your home, give us a call at (866) 662-1670 today. We’ll be happy to help you learn more about this amazing system.
