No more ladders or pricey contractors
If you live in an area that experiences four seasons (winter, spring, summer, and fall) – the biggest issue you will encounter with your rain gutters is clogging due to the buildup of leaves, twigs, acorns and other debris from surrounding trees shedding themselves. The longer the debris sits in your gutter, the more it interacts with water to form a sludge that weighs down your gutter system and prevents proper drainage. This sludge can also cut short the life of your gutters by eating away at the protective coating that serves as a shield from weather elements. If the sludge remains in the gutters too long, it can also become a fire hazard or serve as a nest for vermin such as squirrels, birds and field mice. Standing water can also result in a mosquito infestation which could potentially leaves you and your family exposed to the West Nile Virus.
One way to deal with this problem is to routinely clean your gutters out. While some tools make gutter cleaning a bit easier, there is really no substitute for putting on some thick gloves and climbing up a ladder, or out onto your roof, and digging out the sludge by hand. This is a dangerous endeavor, even leading to death, for anyone, especially elderly home owners. Depending on where you live and how big the job is, you can hire a professional for a few hundred dollars. But the cost adds up over time, especially if you need gutters cleaned several times a year.
Never Clean your Gutters Again with Gutter Helmet®
The best way to prevent clogged gutters is to prevent debris from entering in the first place. The only way to prevent clogging is through the installation of a gutter protection system. The Gutter Helmet® gutter protection system uses a unique, patented design to keep debris out of gutters and allow the water to freely flow to downspouts, and away from your home. Gutter Helmet® comes with a 100% guarantee that your gutters will never clog! Gutter Helmet® is the only gutter protection company that is backed by a billion dollar corporation, Gibraltar Industries. Simple gutter covers and screens can’t make that claim. Only Gutter Helmet® can.
The Gutter Helmet® gutter protection system is a far superior option to routine gutter cleaning for a couple of reasons.
- It’s safer because it eliminates the need to get up on ladders or climb out on to your roof to clean your gutter.
- It’s simply more effective. Why? Because gutter clogging becomes a problem before gutters become noticeably clogged.
A heavy rain fall can cause water to rise higher in the gutter than normal if the gutters are partially filled with debris. Water will then leach back through tiny holes where the gutter is fastened, and rot out the fascia board. Eventually heavy snow loads and ice will rip the gutter and fascia from your home. This problem is avoided with Gutter Helmet® since debris never even makes it into the gutter in the first place.
