Winter brings unexpected changes to any home. Often, the roof and gutters take a hard hit when snow begins to fall. The good news is that you can make your gutters look and function as if they were newly installed with these maintenance tips and by pairing them with the best gutter guard system for winter: the Gutter Helmet® system. Mr. Fix It Virginia discusses why getting these excellent gutter guards along with maintenance is beneficial during this cold season.

Proper Winter Maintenance for Gutters

Clear Up Hardened Snow

During winter, snow accumulates on top of your roof and gutters overnight, even if you clear them every day. We understand how tedious this chore gets, especially when you want to enjoy the warmth of your home. That is why our Gutter Helmet system comes with an optional accessory called Helmet Heat®, which is a self-regulating cable placed inside your gutters that heat up when it detects ice dam formation. It thaws the ice, allowing water to flow to your downspouts.

Be Wary of Gutter Seams 

Every home component has weak spots. For gutters, it’s the seams. This is the area of your gutters where leaks develop. And, it totally defeats the purpose of having gutters in the first place once your seams begin to break. A quick inspection from your trusted gutter expert would guarantee the strength of your gutters.

Schedule Regular Inspections

A roofing inspection before winter comes can help you identify which areas of your roof need attention. When problem areas are fortified beforehand, your roof is ready to take on snow loads, storms and ice. Of course, since your roof takes the brunt of these attacks, you’ll need your trusted roof inspector to check on its condition as the season changes.
