Dropping temperatures signify the coming of winter. In the build-up to the coming holiday season, homeowners throughout the country are starting to clean house and doing their maintenance and repairs to prepare for the snow and the winter chill. You, too, should be getting ready—you should be making sure that your home is 100% protected from the common problems that the winter can bring.
Heated Gutters in Albany, NY
One common winter problem is ice dams. Snow falling onto the roof during winter will eventually melt and flow into your gutters, where it’s likely to re-freeze and form ice dams, usually at the edges of your roof. The problem with ice dams is that they can cause water to be re-directed under the shingles, which could cause water damage to your roof or cause your ceiling to leak. Damage caused by ice dams can be expensive to repair. Fortunately, there is a simple way you can prevent ice dams from forming on your roof.
We at Huff ‘N Puff can help install the Gutter Helmet® gutter protection system for your gutter in Albany NY—and we can equip it with another revolutionary product: Helmet Heat.
