If you’re like most homeowners, you probably don’t think about your gutters until they start to overflow.
When they do overflow, it’s usually because they’re clogged with debris. There are many reasons why your gutters might become clogged, and gutter covers are often the solution. In this blog post, we will discuss the most common causes of gutter clogs and how Gutter Helmet can help solve (most of) your gutter problems.
Common Gutter Problems Homeowners Face
1. Debris buildup from trees and plants (Leaves, twigs, needles and other organic materials)
Debris buildup from trees and plants is one of the most common causes of gutter clogs. Over time, leaves, twigs, and other organic materials can accumulate in your gutters, causing them to become clogged. Gutter Helmet’s patented design prevents debris from entering your gutters in the first place, so you’ll never have to worry about them becoming clogged.
2. Animal nests and droppings causing clogged roof drainage system
Another common cause of gutter clogs is animal nests and droppings. Birds, squirrels, and other animals can often be found nesting in gutters, and their droppings can block the flow of water. Gutter Helmet’s design keeps bird nests out of your gutters so you won’t have to worry about them becoming clogged.
3. Poor gutter design or installation
Poor gutter design or installation can also cause gutters to become clogged. If your gutters are not installed properly, they can cause clogs in the roof drainage systems and prevent the flow of water.
4. Improperly functioning downspouts
Improperly functioning downspouts can also cause gutter overflows. If your downspouts are not installed properly or are not maintained, they can become clogged with debris. This can cause water to back up into your gutters and cause them to overflow.
A gutter cover can help solve problems related to debris build up in your gutters, whether it’s leaves, twigs, needles, bird nests, or other gunk. Gutter Helmet’s patented design prevents debris from entering your gutters, so you’ll never have to worry about them becoming clogged.
