Why Investing in Gutter Helmet® is a Good Idea Part 1

By August 23, 2016October 17th, 2023No Comments

Ideally, your gutters will catch rainwater and funnel it to your downspouts where they flow away from your foundation. Unfortunately, the open design of the gutters leaves them vulnerable to physical debris. Leaves, dirt, and pine needles can get into your gutters and form gutter clogs, which leads to many other problems.

Fortunately, we offer a long-lasting solution with Gutter Helmet®. This product prevents clogs from forming in the first place. In this two-part blog series, we’ll talk about the problems that our gutters can prevent, and its benefits. Let’s begin with the risks of not investing in these quality gutter guards:

Landscape Damage

Gutter clogs cause your gutters to fill up with water, spilling over to the side. During heavy rains, this spilled water lands on small trees, shrubs, and flowerbeds that surround the base of your home. This can damage your plants, form puddles of mud, and erode your landscaping. You can prevent this from happening by investing in Gutter Helmet, one of the best gutter guards serving Greer, SC and the surrounding communities. Our product ensures that rain only goes where it should.

Crackled Foundation

Rainwater pooling around the base of your home can also damage your foundation. This water can saturate the soil surrounding the foundation, which puts an enormous amount of pressure on the side of your home. Over time, this pressure can cause your lower walls and basement to crack. When the water drains off, it can also erode the soil and cause your foundation to settle. Invest in high quality gutter guarants to prevent this costly damage.

Rotting Fascia and Roof Leaks

Gutter clogs can also cause rainwater to spill backwards onto your fascia boards. This can result in deterioration and rotting of the wooden fascia boards. In addition, this spilled water can seep into your roof, which can damage your underlayment and eventually lead to roof leaks. Gutter Helmet, as one of the best gutter guards in Greer, South Carolina, can eliminate this danger. It completely covers your gutters, preventing anything but water from getting through. With no gutter clogs, there’s little risk of an overflow.

Gutter Helmet can help you avoid all these problems and greatly improve your gutters’ performance. The system’s nose-forward design blocks physical debris from even getting into your gutters. Meanwhile, its horizontal stiffening ribs and heavy gauge brackets allow your gutters to handle heavier loads. Gutter Helmet can support up to 22 inches of rain per hour.
