Protecting Your Home with Heated Gutters

By November 12, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

In preparation for the coming winter, you will want to know the best ways to protect your home from the cold weather. One way is to install heated gutters. In this post, Gutter Helmet® of Cookeville shows you why going for heated gutters can save you from future headaches.

Reduces Ice Dams

Debris can obstruct the smooth flow of water through your gutters. With nowhere to go, this stagnant water will freeze in your gutters and turn into ice dams in the colder months. Fortunately, the heat from heated gutters ensures that stagnant water will never form into ice to begin with. They also regulate themselves, so you do not have to monitor them yourself. In addition, they remove the need for you to climb up your roof which you would need to do to remove the ice dams.

Prevents Leaks

A consequence of having ice dams in your gutters is that since water has no place to go, it could overflow onto your roof instead and seep into your home. By reducing ice dams from the start, heated gutters will indirectly prevent leaks in your home too.

Another reliable way to prevent leaks is to keep debris off your gutters. You can achieve this by installing Gutter Helmet® gutter protection. Our product comes with a ribbed surface that water easily adherers to so it can then flow smoothly into the small slit underneath. This slit is so small that debris cannot fit, and goes over it and falls to the ground, away from your home’s foundation.

Prevents Structural Damage

Water obstructed by ice dams can cause damage to your home’s very structure. Heated gutters will stop this problem at its core, keeping your home safe from water damage as much as quality gutter extensions in Cookeville TN, and the local area, would.

When you invest in heated gutters, you spare your home from all the problems that come with water damage in the winter. You can expect Gutter Helmet of Cookeville to help protect your home this coming winter. For more information about our products and services, feel free to give us a call or fill out our contact form.
