Many homeowners neglect their gutters until they notice stains on their siding or pooling of water near their home’s foundation. These are two clear signs that it’s time to update your gutter system to avoid further structural damage.

The Parts of an Effective Gutter System

Finding the right replacement gutters, however, isn’t an easy task, especially with the multitude of options available. Gutter Helmet Systems of Alabama discusses the anatomy of a reliable gutter system in today’s post.

Gutter

These are the channels that run along your roofline and catch the rainwater that hits your roof. Gutters come in different materials and styles. Sectional gutters are the most traditional type, but seamless gutters are quickly gaining popularity. They’re built in one solid piece, which helps prevent leaks.

Fascia Bracket

The fascia bracket is used to attach your gutters to the eaves of your roof. It also supports the gutter system from below, keeping it intact even in severe weather conditions.

Downspout

The horizontal pipes connected to your gutters are the downspouts. They drain water that flows into your gutters away from your home.

Gutter Guards

Without a layer of protection, your gutter system will be susceptible to clogging. Debris such as leaves and twigs can block the opening that connects your gutters and downspouts. This prevents proper water flow, which often leads to over-spilling.

To avoid these problems, invest in a reliable gutter guard like Gutter Helmet®. This type of gutter protection system has unique features, such as a unique nose-forward design and ribbed surface that work together to block debris and allow smooth movement of water.
