Many of us have experienced very harsh winters over the past few years. In fact, it hasn’t been many months since the piles of snow finally melted in Boston, one of the hardest-hit areas of the country in the brutal winter of 2014-15.

According to the venerable Farmer’s Almanac, the winter of 2015-16 will bring below-normal temperatures for the Atlantic Seaboard, eastern portions of the Great Lakes, and the lower peninsula of Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio, most of the Tennessee and Mississippi Valley, as well as much of the Gulf Coast. Meanwhile, the North Central States, the Great Lakes, New England and parts of the Ohio Valley are forecast to experience an abundance of snowfall. Unfortunately for homeowners, extreme cold and ample snow cause big problems for roofs and gutters.

Install Gutter Guards

Ice damming and icicle build-up are two of the most problematic issues that threaten homes in the winter. You can minimize this threat by installing gutter guards on your home. Gutters are designed to prevent water damage by carrying water away; when there’s too much water or the gutters become clogged and ice forms, they can’t do their job. Installing Gutter Helmet® gutter shields can prevent the leaks and other damage that will lead to costly home repairs in the spring. They also keep leaves and debris out of gutters year-round.

Eliminate Snow & Ice

Next, speed up the rate that ice and snow on the roof melt with a heated gutter guard like Helmet Heat®. Helmet Heat is the most effective system available for removing snow on roofs and for keeping ice dams and icicles from forming, preventing expensive damage to your home. In addition to melting ice and snow faster, Helmet Heat prevents icicles from forming when snow and water refreeze overnight.

Forget heading to Lowe’s or Home Depot for gutter guards! Gutter Helmet and the Helmet Heat ice reduction system should only be installed by trained and certified dealers. For a free estimate from a dealer near you, call Gutter Helmet today at (800) 824-3772.
