The Bucket List in Perspective
A productive day of clearing out the gutters can turn tragic real quick-like if you fail to use your ladder properly. About 220,000 people get a fast and furious ambulance ride each year because of ladder related injuries.
Reduce Damaging Mold and Mildew Gutter
Problems arise when you have clogged gutters. Instead of flowing harmlessly into your downspouts, rainwater backs up. Some will flow over the front edge of the gutter, dumping on your shrubs and bushes, and endangering your foundation. Some rainwater spills over the back of the gutter, saturating your eaves, soffit and other wooden framework. This dampness can lead to mold and mildew, which causes wood to rot and decay.
Bye-Bye, Birdies, Rodents, Nests and Insects in Gutters
Before installation, your gutter installer will clean out any nests or other forms of infestation. Because the opening between the nose and your existing gutter is only 3/8 of an inch, it deters birds from nesting and insect infestations.
Safeguard Your Expensive Landscaping
Gutters that overflow pose a constant threat to your bushes and shrubs. Even your lawn can have a problem when it is drenched with excess water. One of the Gutter Helmet benefits is that it captures all the raindrops coming down your roof. It has been documented that Gutter Helmet can capture 22 inches of rain per hour—which is more than double the amount of rain ever recorded in the United States.
