A Minnesota winter should never be taken lightly. Snow and ice can accumulate on your gutters and fascia, putting unnecessary strain on these components. If overlooked, the additional weight created by the buildup can cause them to pull away from the roofline. The good news is that this is easy enough to prevent. The trusted source of the best gutter guards in the area, Gutter Helmet® of Northern Minnesota, shares how to minimize gutter and fascia damage caused by snow and ice.

  • Make sure the gutters are sloped correctly. Otherwise, snow just falls straight into the gutters, filling them quickly and creating a blockage. The best way is to have the gutters pitched a bit lower so they’re not in the path of the sliding snow. Of course, this pitch may not work during the rainy season, so a few adjustments will need to be made to ensure the gutter pitch will be able to shed snow and drain rainwater reliably.
  • Have a quality ice reduction system installed. This way, there’s less chance of snow and ice damage on your gutters and fascia. Gutter Helmet of Northern Minnesota offers Helmet Heat® Ice Reduction Systems that work exclusively with Gutter Helmet. These come with a self-regulating heating cable that melts the snow building up on the roof’s edge and gutters. Helmet Heat offers a safe and effective way to de-ice your gutters and ensure their sturdy and long-lasting performance.
