Eliminate Your Winter Ice Concerns

Looking to Protect Your Roof & Gutters From Costly Winter Ice?

Ice can look pretty, but it could hiding a lot of damage to your home.
 

Oh, dam: we’re talking about ice dams, those sneaky layers of ice that cause water to back up onto your roof. Ice dams occur when the warm roof of your home melts the snow and ice on your roof. That water slips into your gutters, where it freezes. Rotten roofs, mold, and water damage are all the result of those ice dams. How can you get rid of them for good?

What’s Behind the Ice Dam? Ice Dam 101

What’s behind the ice dam? It’s a lot of water. Consider a dam in a river: the dam blocks the water, and the water backs up, creating a lake. The same thing happens when ice forms in and around your gutters. That ice prevents water from your roof from flowing smoothly into the gutters. Instead, the water backs up onto your roof, seeping through cracks and into your gutters. If you have loose shingles, that water moves under the shingles as well, freezing, thawing, and causing trouble in your attic. The damage ice dams cause is often invisible at first. While you think that your roof is covered in a pretty layer of snow and a row of icicles hanging off the gutters, you’ll be dismayed when you notice the water dripping into your attic.

What Other Damage Can Occur Due to Ice Dams?

In addition to the damage that occurs when water backs up onto your roof, ice dams and icicles can also cause problems in your gutters. A gutter that’s full of ice isn’t working properly. It can’t drain, and the ice continues to build up. Ice is heavy and, over the days and weeks that it accumulates, it can expand in your gutters, causing them to warp. When spring comes, the gutters won’t drain properly. The heavy ice also causes gutters to sag and even tear off the brackets that hold them onto the house.

When your gutters are clogged with ice and it rains, that water will spread over your walkways. When it freezes, you’ll have slippery walkways outside your home, posing a hazard to your family and for visitors. While ice looks beautiful, it’s a serious problem for your home.

How Can You Stop Ice Dams?

Thankfully, ice dams are easy to stop. You’re not going to stop heating your home and melting the snow and ice on your roof, so you need to keep that area warm so that it continues to flow into your gutters and down the drain. With a gutter heating system, you can warm the water that moves into your gutters, and prevent it from turning into ice. The heating system allows your gutters to do what they’re designed to do: move water away from your home.

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.
