Your gutters have the important job of protecting your home from water damage by catching rain and redirecting it to your downspouts, where they safely deposit precipitation away from your home. Unfortunately, your gutters cannot perform their job if they are clogged. Clogged gutters will overflow and allow water to damage your home.

Today, Gutter Helmet® Piedmont, gutter protection systems expert, will explain the reasons gutter clogs form:

Ice Dams

Ice dams are formed when water pools in your gutter system and freezes. This blockage creates a dam that prevents melted snow from flowing to your downspout. An ice dam can cause significant damage to your home if you leave it unattended. Fortunately, preventing an ice dam is simple: ventilating and insulating your attic properly. This creates even distribution of heat throughout the roof, allowing ice to melt and run off without refreezing.


Leaves, twigs and other plant debris are the primary reasons for gutter clogging. When enough leaves gather in your gutters, they will form a clog that can completely seal your downspouts from your gutters. This will be a big problem once it rains. Water will pool in your gutters until they finally overflow. The water can then stain your siding, damage your landscaping and saturate the soil surrounding your foundation. This wet soil can then put pressure on the sides of your home and crack your foundation.

Lack of Gutter Protection

Lack of gutter protection makes your gutter system more vulnerable to clogging. That’s why investing in a gutter protection system like Gutter Helmet is a great idea.
