Dramatically Reduce Flooding with Gutter Covers

Gutter replacement
Is your garden looking a little damp? Gutter covers can help.

Gutter covers are there to protect your roof, so how are they connected to your basement? If you’re looking at adding gutter covers or doing a full gutter replacement, your choice will benefit more of your home than you might imagine. By adding a new gutter guard system to your home, you’ll actually protect your home from the roof to the basement.

How Gutter Covers Reduce Backyard Flooding

Imagine a rainy day in the fall. Your gutters are clogged with leaves because it’s been windy lately and you haven’t had a chance to clean them out. It starts to rain harder, and the water pours off your roof and into your gutters. Since the gutters are clogged, the water backs up and pours over the sides of the gutters onto the ground.

Where does all of the water go? Some of it goes into your garden, eroding your landscaping and causing puddles. The puddles turn your garden into a muddy mess every time it rains. What would happen if your gutters couldn’t clog? All of that rain would flow easily from your roof into the gutters. It would go to drains rather than flooding your lawn. That’s what gutter covers do.

Gutter Covers Help You Avoid Basement Leaks

How are your gutters connected to your basement? When water hits the ground and causes puddles, it might seem like the effects on your garden are bad enough. However, eventually, that water soaks into the ground. Other water leaks down your siding, pooling near your foundation. All of it combines and moves down toward the foundation. If there’s a crack in the foundation, the water can easily move into it. When the water freezes, it forces the crack open even more. Over time, the sodden ground can allow your foundation to shift. This leads to further cracks and leaks and can permanently damage your home.

Adding gutter covers to your home helps to prevent those leaks in the first place. Send debris onto the ground and move water through the gutters and into drains with a gutter guard system.

Gutter Covers Benefit Your Entire Home

Large-scale flooding isn’t the only problem you could have with your home. Small leaks can also cause a lot of damage, leading to mold growth and compromising your insulation. If water gets under your roofing, it can leak into your attic, causing water damage that goes invisible for months, or even years. Water can also leak between the gutter and the fascia boards, degrading the connection between your gutters and roof and leaking down the side of your home. With gutter covers, you avoid these leaks since the system allows water to move smoothly from your roof right into the gutter. It prevents water backups since it helps debris move away from the house and onto the ground.

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
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.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
