How to Protect Your Home and Landscape From Heavy Downpours

By May 26, 2017October 18th, 2023No Comments

While some rain is essential for your landscape, too much can cause flooding that puts the beautiful plants and trees in your yard at risk. In addition, if your home is not adequately protected, it might become susceptible to leaks, which can cause significant damage and lead to mold and mildew growth inside. In today’s post, Gutter Helmet®, provider of the best gutter protection system on the market, shares some tips on how to protect your property from torrential downpours.

Invest in Gutter Guards

Without a gutter protection system, gutters can become clogged by leaves, twigs, pine needles, and even small animals, making them unable to drain water safely away from your home. Gutter Helmet gutter guards are designed to prevent clogs from forming, so your gutters remain clear at all times. Featuring a nose-forward design that extends past the lip of the gutter, the system guides water smoothly into your gutters while filtering debris safely to the ground.

This innovative system can handle up to 22 inches of rain per hour, which is more than the highest rainfall amount ever recorded in the United States. As an added bonus, the cost of Gutter Helmet is very affordable and our expert team will complete a quick and efficient installation to cut down on labor fees.

Install Downspout Extenders

A downspout extender is a device installed at the bottom of your gutters that helps direct flowing water safely away from the base of your home and your landscape. This prevents water from seeping into your basement during a heavy storm, and from flooding your patio and yard. Installing a downspout extender will not only help keep your home safe from water damage, it can also protect your garden and landscape.

Prune Your Trees

Pruning your trees is important for many reasons. It keeps them growing in healthy ways and encourages more abundant fruit growth. It is also a helpful way to reduce the risk of damage from severe storms, particularly if you have tall trees near your house. During a strong storm, branches can break, hitting your house and damaging your roof or gutters. In addition, falling leaves can accumulate in your gutters if you don’t have Gutter Helmet, clogging your system and preventing it from draining water effectively.

With summer just around the corner, now is the time to make sure your home is prepared for strong storms. Rainfall entering your home due to failing gutters or a flooded lawn is not only disastrous from a financial perspective—it can also cause serious health hazards to you and your family. Moisture build-up in your basement or attic creates a breeding ground for mold and mildew, which can cause a range of health problems for your family.

One of the single best things you can do to protect your home and your yard from torrential downpours is to invest in Gutter Helmet. Call us today at (800) 824-3772 to learn more.
