Ice and snow are a constant for most parts of the year in Alaska. This is why the best gutter guards always take these into consideration in their designs. While snow can be beautiful, at times, it can cause a lot of damage to your roof, especially to your gutters.

The sheer weight snow can add to your roof can sometimes exceed the structural strength of the deck. On your gutters, ice and snow can weigh down the sections too much and cause sagging problems. Sagging gutters are not effective at draining away water and lead to numerous other issues around your home. 

Here are some ways our experts at ABC Seamless Siding recommend to get around snow and ice in your gutters:

Correct Installation

When gutters are installed properly by a professional, they are actually able to handle a lot of weight before buckling. This is one of the reasons why it’s best to leave gutter replacements and installations to professionals. They will be able to fasten the troughs securely to your fascia boards and prevent any structural damage, even under heavy snow days.

Snow Stops

Snow stops are plastic, acrylic, or metal brackets glued or screwed on the roofing panels to help “stop” snow from sliding into your gutters. They are effective at holding snow in place while allowing liquid water to still drain safely from your roof. Talk to your roofer or gutter contractor about using snow stops on your roof.

Gutter Protection Systems

The best gutter guards like Gutter Helmet® do not just protect your gutters from clogging, they also prevent snow and ice from accumulating inside the troughs. The top cover is designed to allow snow to slide cleanly off your roof and gutter and safely onto the ground below.
