What Damage Can a Leaking Gutter Cause?

Damage Caused by Leaking Gutter | Gutter HelmetThe importance of having a fully functioning gutter system installed at your home cannot be overstated. Gutters have the important job of channeling rainwater away from your home and its surrounding property, which can become seriously damaged by an accumulation of moisture. If your gutters are leaking and failing to carry away excess water, your home may be plagued by several unpleasant — and costly — issues, such as:

  • The growth of mold and mildew
  • The infestation of insects that breed in standing water
  • Wet or flooded basements and crawlspaces
  • Landscape erosion and destroyed plants
  • Rotted rafters and soffits
  • Cracked and unsettled foundations

The Solution

At Gutter Helmet of Minnesota, we can outfit your home with a new gutter system that is manufactured by GenGo and designed to provide decades of optimal performance. These systems are custom measured and cut to fit the precise contours of your home, unlike sectional gutters that come in prefabricated pieces. This method of fabrication makes a significant difference, as it renders your gutters virtually seamless and far less likely to leak over time.

Moreover, when we install your rain gutters, we can also install our multi-patented Gutter Helmet gutter guards. With a revolutionary bull-nose edge that helps coax water into your gutters while sloughing away leaves, dirt, and other debris, these gutter guards will help ensure that your gutters don’t clog and can continue to protect your home from water damage.
