Keep Your Gutters Flowing This Fall and Winter

Is your home ready for the winter weather? Here’s how to keep it cozy and leak-free this season.

Are you trying to turn over a few new leaves this fall? Fall is the time to get ready for the stormy, rainy winter months. When you’re thinking about preparing your home for the winter weather, consider adding gutter covers and gutter heating to your to-do list for home improvements. Here are a few ways to keep your roof draining and the water flowing freely in your gutters this fall and winter season.

Renew Your Landscaping

As we move into the fall, take a hard look at your landscaping. While trees and shrubs can be prone to fungal infections due to fall pruning, fall is a good time to assess what worked for your garden this year. As the leaves move from the trees into your gutters and onto your roof, consider whether you need to prune that deciduous tree and whether your new plantings are in the right place. Pruning and transplanting next summer can help reduce your landscape maintenance in the future and will set you up beautifully for next fall.

Watch for Warping, Sags and Leaks

Warped, sagging, or leaky gutters won’t perform properly. Before the snow falls, take a look around the outside of your home. Check your gutters thoroughly. If you can, look inside them as well to determine whether there is buckling or leakage, or hire a professional to do so. Make sure that your gutters are well-connected to your downspouts as well.

Perform Regular Maintenance

No matter what type of gutter you have, you’ll need to perform some basic maintenance to ensure that it’s not sagging, warping, or clogging. However, if your gutters are uncovered you’ll need to be more attentive. Take a look into your gutters and remove debris such as sticks and fall leaves that could clog your gutters.

Add a Gutter Cover

If you’re tired of hiring someone to look at your gutters or you feel uncomfortable standing on a ladder, you may consider adding a gutter cover to your home. A gutter cover goes over your gutter and protects it from the leaves and sticks that fall can bring. These covers greatly reduce the amount of debris that enters your gutter system in the first place, preventing clogs and ensuring that water flows freely as the weather gets cooler.

Add Gutter Heating Products

If you live in a place where it gets cold, make sure that you have a way to prevent ice dams this winter. An ice dam is a patch of water that can push under your roofing and move it up as the water freezes, leading to leaks. By adding gutter heat, you’ll prevent ice from forming. This not only keeps your gutters clean, it also prevents roof leaks.

1 Million+ Satisfied Customers Nationwide

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.
