Why Atlanta Homeowners Love Gutter Guards

Highlights:

  • Gutter guards can minimize pests
  • Gutter guards can prevent blockages that cause water damage
  • Gutter guards can minimize fire risk

A couple of good rainstorms will give you a good idea of why gutters are essential to your home and why you need them. But do you need gutter guards? To some, they might sound like unnecessary extras. But they can be essential, depending on your needs, and they can definitely help you in many ways. Please take a look at some of the most important reasons why people in your area decide to add gutter guards to their homes.

Keep the Pests Out

No one wants a pest problem in their home. But you probably don’t think of gutters as an issue when you’re thinking of pest control. 

The thing is, your gutters are a perfect place for all types of pests to hole up and make a home. Bugs like the moisture, birds see twigs and other debris that will help them build a nest, and even bats, mice, and rats can look at a gutter system and see a comfortable home. While they’re there, they can cause damage and even work their way into your home. The purpose of gutter guards is to keep out debris, but if leaves and twigs can’t get in, neither can mice and birds.

Prevent Blockages

Cleaning your gutters isn’t just about keeping things looking nice. When leaves and twigs build up in your gutters, they can clump together and end up causing a blockage that prevents water from flowing through your gutters or downspouts. This can cause overflow, water damage, leaks in your home, and damage to your landscaping. Blockages are dangerous.

Gutter guards prevent blockages by preventing things from getting into your gutters or downspouts in the first place. You don’t need to worry about cleaning things out of the gutters, and you also don’t have to worry that the things you’re not cleaning will build up and turn into blockages.

Safety

Gutter guards can play a role in preventing this scenario.

Gutters may not be the first thing to cross your mind when you think of home safety, but they can be an important factor to consider, particularly when it comes to fire safety. If there’s a fire on your property, sparks and embers can jump and travel a long way.

The problem will occur if sparks land in your gutters when there are dried leaves, twigs, and debris in there. That dried, dead foliage can end up being a significant fire hazard. Suddenly, a house that might have been saved otherwise could go up in flames. 

But gutter guards can help eliminate this particular danger. There wouldn’t be any dried-out leaves and sticks in your gutter to ignite because of a random spark. While this won’t prevent all possible fire damage, it will eliminate a potential fire hazard that puts your home at risk.

I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.

Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!

VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.

We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
