Summer storms sometimes occur without warning, and the best way to minimize damage is with a little bit of preparedness. Gutter Helmet® Systems of Alabama shares some tips on preventing or minimizing damage from sudden summer storms, and how the best gutter covers in the industry, Gutter Helmet, can help.

Regularly Clean Your Gutters

Keeping the gutters free of leaves and debris ensure full efficiency, which prevents overflowing gutters, a problem that can lead to foundation damage. Keeping the gutters clean, combined with scheduled gutter maintenance, helps prevent damage from sudden downpours.

Gutter Helmet makes gutter cleaning effortless. Other gutter protection systems filter leaves, dirt and debris at the top, which then need to be scooped out. Gutter Helmet makes things easier by pushing all solid matter down to the ground, while rainwater flows smoothly into the gutters.

Keep Trees in the Yard Trimmed

Tree branches hanging over your roof can scratch the surface and scrape away the outer granules on asphalt shingle roofs, or the coating on metal roofs. This can expose the roofing layers underneath, leaving your home vulnerable to water intrusion. Keeping the trees trimmed also prevents animals such as squirrels from accessing your roof and also reduces the risk of damaging nearby power lines.

Clean Loose Objects in Your Yard

Loose objects such as toys can be carried by strong winds, creating a hazard. Keeping your yard clean can help minimize the chances of damage caused by these objects.

Consider Installing Storm Doors and Shutters

Storm doors and window shutters are a great way to protect your doors and windows from wind and impact damage. Shutters, in particular, can withstand a lot of wear and tear. Also, repairing or replacing damaged shutters costs less than replacing damaged windows. Storm doors do the same for entry doors.
