Ways Clogged Gutters can Damage Homes

There’s a reason why experts are exhorting the use of gutter guards to better prevent clogging. Clogged gutters are a nightmare. Here are a few ways clogged gutters can cause serious damage on homes.

Ice dams – Probably the most obvious one on this list, ice dams are the scourge of homeowners in locations where winter hits hard. When ice dams form on gutters or the lower edge of the roof, water on the roof can accumulate and easily seep into the home’s interiors. When this happens, wood rot and mold could follow suit.

Rain Gutter Covers Now Compatible with Self-regulating Heat Cables

As a leading developer of effective gutter solutions and a premier manufacturer of rain gutter covers, GutterDome, Inc. continues to implement innovations aimed at helping customers get the most value out of its products and services. With the onset of winter, the company is pleased to remind clients that any GutterDome product can now be professionally installed with a self-regulating heat cable on a composition shingle roof. This option is intended to address the abundance of snow and ice this season. Since the chilling climate can lead to hoarfrost-coated roofs and even gutter blockages, the addition of a heat source to the gutter can prevent the unwanted build-up of ice and pave the way for a more efficient removal of frost.

Minimizing Gutter Cleaning Work

When you're weary of having to regularly clean your gutters, you might have thought about doing away with them altogether. Sadly, removing your gutter isn't an option.

The International Residential Code doesn't specifically require gutters, but it does mandate the construction of a drain piping system in homes through which rainwater and melting snow can flow from the roof on to the ground. The lack of any system, especially on the roof, can cause water to infiltrate the nooks and crannies of your home and promote mold growth, water damage, and the deterioration of your home’s foundation. Gutters offer the most effective means of draining water from roofs.

Preempting Ice Dams with Roof Gutter Guards

The winter season brings about a lot of environmental changes, the most evident of which is the presence of snow. Snowy weather might be a great way to set the mood for the holidays, but it can do a number on homes ill-equipped for the extreme cold.
