Why You Need Gutter Helmets
Keeping your gutters clean is one of the best ways to keep your Louisiana roof in good condition. Gutter helmets are a very effective way to do this because they prevent leaves and other debris from falling into your gutters while still allowing water to drain properly. Virtually any home can benefit from installing gutter helmets, but they are particularly handy if you live in an area that gets frequent rain and wind, or if you have multiple trees on your property. Here are the specific benefits of using gutter helmets.
Minimal gutter maintenance
Cleaning out gutters is a very painstaking process, but with a gutter helmet, you don't have to worry about it. The debris will naturally fall away while the gutter helmet will siphon the water off of the roof using surface tension. This keeps your gutters free of debris and eliminates this frustrating chore from your routine. It also will keep your gutters in better condition long-term, so you won't have to spend money to hire a maintenance company.
Gutter helmets are extremely durable and can last for decades, so you don't have to worry about replacing them. The Gutter Helmet brand actually offers a triple lifetime warranty and they also use very heavy duty brackets to mount it, so there's no risk of it coming off.
Keeps your roof safe
You need working gutters to keep your roof in good condition, and gutter helmets will ensure that your gutter does the job it is supposed to. If your gutter is backed up, water won't drain off of it properly, which means that your roof could sustain water damage. A gutter helmet also allows debris to slide off of the roof, so they won't collect on top of it.
