Protecting Your Gutters From Ice

By February 14, 2020 No Comments

gutters iceLet’s face it, ice isn’t exactly a good thing for your home. We all know that burst pipes can cost a family a tremendous amount of money, which is why so many emphasize the fact that you should keep your pipes warm during the winter. However, this isn’t the only way that ice can adversely affect your home. A lot of snow, for example, can damage your roof considerably. 

You should also be aware that ice in your gutters can cause serious problems, beyond the normal issues that arise with water damage. Every family should understand that gutters are also an important area of the home to protect. Ice can not only damage your home, but can also damage surrounding power lines as well. Here’s how you can take steps to make sure that your home and family are safe from ice and water damage.

What Can Happen?

We often don’t think about situations involving safety until it’s too late. For example, many residents who are used to certain weather patterns in a specific region might ignore tornado or hurricane warnings. Others might simply be unaware of what can happen to your house if you leave it susceptible to the elements.

Did you know that branches might actually pose a safety hazard? If a branch freezes and falls on your house, you might regret not having taken a look at the branches around your house and trimming them. 

An ice dam can also cause serious water damage and lead to additional water leaks in your home. It might even cause a gutter to fall off completely, believe it or not. That’s one of the reasons why you want to consider a strong gutter guard to keep your home safe through the winter.

No one wants to imagine a scenario where a storm knocks out electricity. But let’s face it, this can happen. In this situation, you should understand that a generator is extremely useful. If the storm leads to criminals attempting to break into homes, a generator can also help keep your fire alarms and burglar alarms on as well.

Why Choose K-Guard?

It can be tough to find which products are actually going to be useful and which companies really believe in their product. Anyone can spend time reading consumer reviews or trying to get tips from friends and family, but why can you actually trust K-Guard for your gutter needs? There are multiple reasons why K-Guard is the best choice.

First and foremost, K-Guard offers a lifetime warranty. It simply doesn’t get better than that in terms of saving time and money. If you want to keep your gutters clean and deal with ONE company that is willing to offer you a lifetime warranty, why wouldn’t you consider it? It should be noted that the lifetime warranty is offered through individual dealers, and you should contact your local dealer for more information.

Secondly, the patented K-Guard system offers unique strength and durability that the competition simply can’t match. The all-weather polymer helps K-Guard stand up to pretty much any weather conditions imaginable. In fact, you might end up using the same gutter system for over a decade with no problem! This kind of strength is essential for those who are worried about the effects of ice on their home. 

The K-Guard system also understands that homes want to retain a modern aesthetic, which is why the rounded curves of the system are much more appealing than other gutter systems out there. Why not choose a custom color and add something helpful to your home that also improves its appearance?

The K-Guard system is also able to drain more water than smaller systems, which makes it a more efficient system to use. This also means that larger debris can be flushed/filtered out, while it might remain if you use competing gutter systems.

Make The Smart Choice

There are many companies that will claim that their gutter system will keep your family safe, but are they confident enough to offer a lifetime warranty? Even if the gutter system is efficient, will it change the way that your house looks, which could potentially affect its resale value? Icicles don’t exactly keep your home looking the best that it could be.

Weather might not be predictable, but K-Guard is the kind of strong and reliable gutter system where you can have a sense of mind about your home, no matter what the weather.
