The image above shows the truth about a poor gutter protection system.

While you may not often think about it, water can cause tremendous damage to your home. Your gutters are designed and installed to direct water away from your home’s structural framework. In order to effectively handle rainwater and snow melt, your gutters and their downspouts must be free of debris and leaf litter. Your gutters must also have the correct angle, so that water can flow seamlessly and be drained by the downspout.

Signs That Your Gutters are Struggling

You may observe visible debris sticking out of your gutters or the telltale stains of water running down your siding. This likely means that you have a gutter blockage.

Improper Pitch
If your gutters have pools of stagnant water with no debris blockages, that means that your gutters are at the wrong angle. Too shallow an angle and pools water form throughout. Too steep of an angle, and the water does not effectively drain through the downspout, instead rushing right past.

If you see water dripping from your gutters or telltale signs of water on your siding, you likely have a leak. These often form at gutter joints or from holes that are caused by weather or wear and tear.

Sagging gutters
If your gutters hang lower at the middle, you have a problem. The gutter itself is pulling away from your home, which can be caused by heavy, sodden debris or by improper gutter installation using too few gutter hangers.

Damage Caused by Improperly Draining Gutters

Whatever the cause, your gutters can cause serious issues for your home if they do not drain properly. What starts with a small leak or pooling water can have serious consequences. Damage that can be caused by clogged or leaking gutters include:

  • Wood rot on your soffit and fascia
  • Warping concrete for driveways and walkways
  • Mildew and mold
  • Flooded Basements
  • Damaged home foundations
  • Damage to your roofing

How to Avoid Gutter Problems

The key to having a healthy home is having a well-functioning gutter system. For most homes, this involves regular gutter maintenance, especially gutter cleaning. No one loves this chore, but you need to ensure that debris has not clogged your gutters to avoid serious issues. Another option is installing gutter protection, which utilizes a Leaf gutter filters and removes the need for regular maintenance and ladder work!

How Gutter Cap Works

Gutter Cap installs over the first row of shingles and gutter.  The majority of debris is pushed off by the wind.  The remainder is flushed off through the principle of surface tension.  Rainwater adheres to the Gutter Cap and drains into the gutter while the debris falls to the ground.

The Gutter Cap Advantage

There is consumer awareness that metal dome gutter protection systems are the most effective.  Gutter Cap takes the design even further with a fully rounded nose, and a patented trough system.  Gutter Cap has an installation training facility available in Chicago.  All installers that have passed the rigorous training course become factory certified.

Gutter Cap Installation

Gutter Cap can be installed on almost any type of roof, shingle type, and pitch from flat roofs to mansards.  The patented design allows gutter cap to mount directly to the lip of the gutter without the use of clumsy brackets or clips.  The panel follows the contour of the roof and blends in with the roofline making it practically invisible.
