Don’t let Hurricane Winds Damage your Gutters

hurricane

With an expected busy hurricane season on the horizon, homeowners should know that they have more than just rain worries. High winds are another concern as they can be damaging to property. Gutters are vulnerable to damage like dents or partial or complete dislodgment of parts of the gutter system due to being hit by tree limbs or flying debris. Debris thrown into the gutter system can also create dangerous clogs that weigh down the gutters and cause damage. Learn how to protect yourself from damage to your gutter system before a hurricane hits your property.

Trim Tree Limbs

Before the storm clouds start gathering, get rid of tree limbs that are too close to your house.

Trees are one of the biggest dangers to your property during a severe storm. The wind doesn’t even need to detach limbs from the tree to cause damage. Just the tree limbs hitting your gutters during a storm can cause damage.

Trimming trees before a storm blows onto your property can protect you from tree limb damage. Dead or dying limbs should be removed, and you should also ensure adequate space between tree branches and your home. Trim them back if the branches are close enough to hit your home.

Have Your Gutters Inspected

Gutters that are already weakened by damage are more likely to suffer serious harm during a storm.

Any existing damage to your gutters will weaken them, making them vulnerable to more damage during a storm. To have the best chance of avoiding wind damage, you should ensure that your gutters are in their best condition before a storm hits. If you notice sagging, dents, or loose parts, you should have them repaired.

The time when you’re preparing for a storm is a good time to have your gutters inspected by a gutter professional, especially if you’re not up to climbing up to check them out yourself. Just examining them from the ground may not allow you to see signs of weakness or existing damage. Instead, you can schedule a gutter professional to inspect your gutters up close and alert you of any repairs that should be made before your gutters are subjected to a storm.

Consider A Gutter Guard

Keeping your gutters clean and free of clogs will help keep them in good shape for directing rainwater through your gutters. However, wind can blow material that causes clogs into your gutter system. One way to avoid this and eliminate worries about gutter clogs generally is to install a gutter guard like Gutter Helmet over your existing gutter system.

Gutter Helmet is a permanent fixture installed over your gutters. It prevents solid debris from entering the gutter system while allowing water to enter. This way, your gutters stay free of plant matter, pests, and trash that could clog the gutter system and contribute to damage.

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.
