Why a Textured Surface Can Make Gutter Protection More Effective
One of the largest investments you will make is purchasing your home; so it is essential that you take all the necessary precautions to protect it. Gutters are one of the most commonly overlooked features of a house, yet they play a vital role in protecting it. Installing a Gutter Helmet System is an additional step to ensure the gutters that are protecting your home are also protected. The textured surface of a Gutter Helmet System prevents debris from coming in contact with large surface areas, which provides additional assurance against damages to your home.
Why You Need a Gutter Helmet®
A Gutter Helmet System prevents rainwater from ending up on or in your home and away from your landscaping. When water is coming off the roof, it naturally splashes back onto the house, which ultimately causes foundation damage, flooding, wood rot, soil erosion and damage to the siding. With a Gutter Helmet System, you will also eliminate the need to spend time cleaning leaves and debris from the gutters, which means they will run clear all year round. Not only does Gutter Helmet protect your home, but it makes your seasonal maintenance much simpler as well.
Why is a Textured Surface More Effective?
A textured surface allows the rainwater to adhere to the surface as it flows down from the roof. The curved edge of the Gutter Helmet extends beyond the edge of the gutter, which allows water to naturally flow into the gutter system instead of splashing back onto the house or directly from the roof to the ground. There is a small slit that allows the rainwater to escape the gutter, but it stops leaves and other debris from getting into and clogging the system.
Traditional gutters fill with leaves and other debris, which ultimately leads to damage, pests and overflowing water that eventually spills over, putting the water in the last place you want it — near the foundation of your home. Not only does installing a Gutter Helmet System help save you time, but it also is beneficial financially, because you will avoid the risk of water damage to your foundation, your landscaping, your siding and your walls. Gutter Helmet can also improve the aesthetic appeal of the exterior of your home, and the system works well with rain barrels to ensure that the water you are collecting is clean.
