Fall is here and winter is on the way. Is your home ready to handle the plunging temperatures and the threat of snowstorms that winter will bring? Now is the time to bolster your home’s defense against the elements through things like taking care of roof repairs and investing in replacement gutters.
Read on as Gutter Helmet of Eastern NY shares some key tips for strengthening your home’s protection.
1. Inspect Your Home
Age, severe weather, and water damage can all reduce your home’s protection. Before winter arrives, conduct a thorough inspection of your home to identify underlying issues that require immediate attention. Focus on areas constantly exposed to the elements, like your roof and gutters.
2. Be Proactive Rather Than Reactive
Don’t wait for debris to clog your gutters. Check your gutters now for accumulated twigs, leaves, needles, and other debris. Clogs are dangerous because they prevent your gutters from draining precipitation away from your home. Installing Gutter Helmet® can help eliminate the need for gutter maintenance.
Gutter Helmet has an original nose-forward design and a ribbed surface that utilizes the principle of surface tension. These unique features prevent clogs from forming in your gutters, allowing water to flow smoothly into your downspouts no matter what Mother Nature throws at you. Gutter Helmet also provides superior protection to your heated gutters.
3. Hire a Professional Contractor
Entrust the job to gutter professionals who carry the proper licenses and credentials. They can provide excellent services that meet the highest standards of the industry. They have also been trained on safety procedures and have access to high-class materials that can withstand extreme conditions.
