The unfortunate truth about the temperature is that it’s dropping, and will be for some time now.With Fall here and winter looming on the horizon, the most we can do is plan for the inevitable freezing cold days and snow to come. But when your home is involved in these inclement temperatures, there are a few other things to look at. Number one is your roofing and gutter system. With the weight of ice and snow, it’s important to do what you can to prevent flooding and build up as best you can.

Roofing

For your roofing, it’s important to make sure nothing comes between it and your home. IT’s a good idea to get up on your roofing and look for damaged shingles, and possible cracks and damage near your chimney. Problems due to this can lead to leaking, and the loss of heat and shingles through your attic and roof.

Gutters

Though the icicles might look cool hanging from your gutter, there’s not much good they’re doing other than a cool photo-op. Instead of risking a gutter falling or failing, give Helmet Heat a whirl before the winter hits. These additions to your Gutter can aid in the prevention of damage caused by ice, and it can melt away snow and ice into water to be drained by your gutters, free of debris. This pairs extremely well with a new Gutter Helmet designed to repel any dirt and debris from your home.

If you’re thinking about prepping your home for the white season, make sure Gutter Helmet is on your mind. With a range of different options available for any home, you can sit back and relax knowing your home is protected and ready for the months ahead.
