Why Summer is Gutter Maintenance Season

By July 14, 2016October 16th, 2023No Comments

It’s that time again: summer home maintenance season! What’s one of the most essential items that should be on your to-do list? Gutters. Because gutters don’t have to work as hard in the summer, this is the opportunity to address any chronic issues before fall and winter.

Gutter Helmet® of Kansas City, the top local source for gutter splash guard in Belton, Missouri, outlines some things to do for a summer gutter check-up.

• Remove debris in the troughs. Leaves, twigs and other debris are the main sources of clogs, so you’ll need to get them out.

• Get rid of nests. Birds will usually have fledged by summer, so chances are their nests will be empty. Clear out any evidence of nesting to discourage future residents.

• Check for signs of damage. Sagging gutters, unhinged joints, rust — these signs will require your immediate attention if your gutters are to survive the fall and winter.

Unfortunately, you will notice that all these tasks will require you to get on the roof. There are risks to consider, not to mention some special tools that you may need. Wouldn’t it be better to leave the job to someone properly qualified and equipped?

The Solution

With our Gutter Helmet cover and gutter splash guard in Belton, Missouri, you can eliminate this maintenance altogether. This system fits over your gutters and screens out any debris so that only water can enter the troughs. As a result, issues like clogs, sagging gutters and ice dams will be non-existent.

Gutter Helmet also features a PermaLife™ finish to protect against chalking, fading and corrosion from salt water and acid rain. Its heavy-duty mounting bracket can withstand heavy winds and handle up to 22 inches of rain per hour. As such, you won’t have to clean your gutters again, regardless of the season.
