Preventing Warped and Sagging Gutters, Rotten Fascia and Soffit

PAIN PICS & BAD GUTTER 060Nothing can deface the beauty of a well-built, well-landscaped property like sagging or severely warped gutters. It’s not just the aesthetic impact you need to worry about. Warped and sagging gutters allow water to leak into the interior of your home, and eat away at the wood and concrete that make up your home’s infrastructure.

Warping occurs from the constant expansion and contracting of the metal that your gutters are made of; aluminum, steel and vinyl being the most common. Gutters expand and contract as the weather turns exceedingly cold in winter and hot in summer. This perfectly normal reaction to the elements weaken your gutters over time as well as causing significant warping and damage.

To help slow the process of warping, manufacturers will protect gutters with non-corrosive coatings (aluminum gutters) and galvanization (steel gutters). However, no amount of protection will make gutters last forever. As a consumer and a homeowner, you can also help slow the process of warping by preventing gutters from clogging. When debris is allowed to build up and fester in your gutters, it turns into sludge-like substance that can eat away at the gutter’s coating, accelerating corrosion and warping. Another accelerator is inadequate gutter installation. Whether the screws are not flush with the gutter surface, or corner pieces, called elbows, aren’t fully sealed, sloppy installation can leave small crevices that serve as a catch point for debris, which will quickly turn into corrosive sludge.

Sagging is another killer for your home’s gutter system. Sagging can occur primarily from gutter hangers that are placed too far apart or gutter systems that are not installed with a steep enough pitch. In both cases, water pools up between downspouts, accelerating corrosion and increasing the likelihood that gutters will break away from the side of 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.
