Why Salt Lake City, UT Homeowners Love Gutter Guards/Covers

Some rain is good for the land, but it’s not so great for your home. That’s why you have gutters – to direct the rainwater away from the sides of your home and foundation where it can cause water damage. But is your gutter system enough? Unfortunately, for many homes, it isn’t. Gutter guards add additional value to their gutter system by making them more functional and lower maintenance. Take a look at some of the reasons why gutter guards are a great choice for Salt Lake City, UT homeowners.

Save Time and Money on Maintenance

Cleaning leaves out of a gutter.
Tired of cleaning your gutters? Gutter guards can help!

If you’ve owned a home with a gutter system for any length of time, you know about cleaning out your gutters. It must be done regularly, but it may need to be done outside your regular schedule if you develop an unexpected clog. It’s messy. If you’re doing it yourself, it may be dangerous to climb up to where you need to be to reach the gutters. If you’re not doing it yourself, it may be expensive to pay someone else to do it.

Gutter guards prevent clogs. It’s their primary purpose. They’re designed to allow rainwater in but not let in leaves, twigs, sticks, or other debris that can choke up various parts of the gutter. This keeps the water flowing freely and draining correctly and saves you the trouble and expense of cleaning your gutters yourselves or paying to have them cleaned.

Prevent Pest Infestation

Keep birds from nesting in your gutter system.

When homeowners worry about pests in their homes, they may not think of their gutters. This is a mistake – gutters can actually be a point of entry for any number of pests. Worse, insects, rats and rodents, and even some animals you may not think of as pests, like birds, can make their nests in your gutters. 

Nests and habitats in the gutters can contribute to clogs, and pests that make their way into the gutters can cause damage and find their way into your home, leading to infestation and even more damage. But gutter guards keep bigger pests from getting in. By keeping debris out, they also make the gutter conditions less attractive, even for small bugs. 

Protect Your Home

Perhaps most importantly, gutter guards help your gutters to do their most crucial job: protect your home from water damage. When water pours over the sides of your gutters because of a clog, it hits the sides of the house, which could cause water damage to the siding. It could also pool around the foundation, causing leaks and water damage to the foundation, which could be extremely expensive to fix.

But with gutter guards, your gutters won’t clog, so those overflows, leaks, and water damages won’t happen. Instead, the gutters will keep the water flowing the way that it’s supposed to, and your home will stay in great shape. If you’re like many homeowners, your home is your most significant investment, so it makes sense to protect it with something as simple as gutter guards.

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.
