Do I need Gutter Helmet to Prevent Clogged Gutters?

Many people choose Gutter Helmets to protect their home from the damage that stuffed, clogged and dirty gutters can cause. As a maintenance feature, gutter helmets make cleaning your gutters a thing of the past. Gutter Helmet keeps leaves and other debris from clogging gutters and downspouts, prevents costly damage to your home’s roof, siding and landscape and prevents mold, mildew, disease and outbreaks of mosquitoes that breed in wet clogged, gutters.

Mosquitoes can make life miserable. Many back yard outings have been ruined by the constant annoyance and irritation caused by their bites. Also, some species can transmit serious diseases. Mosquitoes lay eggs on the surface of water in rain barrels, bird baths, cisterns and roof gutters so be sure to clean debris from rain gutters and unclog obstructed downspouts. Clogged rain gutters are one of the most overlooked breeding sites for mosquitoes around homes. For more information on how to keep leaves out and avoid stuffed gutters for good, call the experts at Gutter Helmet of WNC at 828-681-5555.

Leaf gutter guard filters are a great solution to meet the demands of homeowners who want an effective and affordable gutter protection solution.  Gutter screens or filters are ideal for most homes.

Ice Dams Can Cause Gutter Problems & Costly Damage

Do you have icicles hanging from your rain gutters? This can be the first warning sign that you have ice dams on your roof.  An ice dam is a sheet of ice that forms at the edge of the roof, typically at the gutters or soffit. When this happens, water backs up behind the ice dam and creates a pool of water that can leak into your home and cause expensive damage to ceilings, walls and insulation.

Ice dams are typically a result of heavy snowfall combined with improper ventilation in the attic. Warm areas on your roof cause areas of snow to melt. The water then runs down your roof under colder frozen snow and when it reaches a cold spot, like a soffit, rain gutter or valley – it freezes again causing an ice dam.

Properly ventilating and insulating the attic is the best way to prevent ice dams. The usual recommendation for proper ventilation is 1 square foot of vent for every 150 feet of attic floor area.

Cleaning the rain gutters on your home can also help prevent ice dams from occurring but they can still occur if the conditions are right. Installing gutter covers – like Gutter Helmet, can often prevent ice dams from forming on gutters. Solid gutter covers provide a protective barrier. The prolonged existence of ice dams can actually damage gutters by tearing them away from your roof. It’s a good idea to have your roof and gutters evaluated before ice becomes an issue and stop the problem before it starts. You can contact a licensed roofing professional or your local WNC Gutter Helmet dealer to discuss the best solution. Removing ice dams can be very dangerous. We recommend contacting a roofing professional if this occurs.

For more information on preventing gutter damage or installing protective gutter covers, call the experts at Gutter Helmet of WNC in Asheville. We’ll help protect your home from ice dams and the damage they can cause. Visit www.nevercleanyourgutters.com or call 828-681-5555 for more details.

Gutter Guard Comparisons

Why do some gutter covers or gutter guards fail? There are various ways to classify and rate gutter covers/helmets/guards and other devices intended to keep leaves, debris and other stuff out of gutters. You can divide them into very broad or very specific categories. There are six basic types:

  • Reverse Curve
  • Mesh
  • Bottle Brush
  • Nylon
  • Foam type
 The reverse curve is designed to direct water downward into the gutter through a tiny slit but encourages leaves to fall to the ground.

Mesh gutter guards are sheets filled with holes that cover the gutter and attach to the roof shingles. Small holes are better than large holes because they don’t clog with leaves and stuff as easily.

Bottle brush gutter guards are similar to those pokey bristles that prevent birds from landing on things like statues. The bristles face upright so debris can rest on top while water flows into the downspout.

Nylon gutter guards work especially well in the winter to prevent snow and ice accumulation. You can get them to fit into your gutter without attaching to the shingles.

Foam Type is made from a plastic that fits directly into the gutter. It’s supposed to block all the debris falling from the roof and into the gutter. Debris can get caught on top of the foam which can lead to problems. The foam also displaces water, so the gutter holds less than with other cover types and may overflow more easily during heavy rains.

How Does Gutter Helmet of  WNC in Asheville, NC compare to gutter guards, covers, screens and other types of gutter products?

Gutter Helmet’s unique, multi-patented, curved design has no vertical openings that can allow debris to settle or to enter. Gravity causes leaves and debris to fall harmlessly to the ground, while water surface tension causes water to flow around the exclusive cover design and back into your gutters.

All gutter protection products are not created equally. Gutter Helmet is the only system that really does what it advertises. This is why Gutter Helmet is installed in more homes than any other gutter protection system.

The fact is that snow can also cause major problems when you don’t have a proper rain gutter protection system in place.

Not only do gutters keep rain from running off your roof and over doorways and entryways and getting you wet, they protect your home from damage by managing the flow of water.

The power of hundreds of gallons of rain water running off your roof can be a damaging source of nature. Where does it go once it  gets to the edge? Without gutters it goes right to your home’s foundation.  The dirt around your home saturates with water leading to foundation damage, water in your basement, mold problems and a host of other expensive problems.
