How to Prevent Gutter Damage


Your gutter system is one of the most important components of your home as it catches the rainwater that runs off your roof and redirects it away from your home, protecting it from moisture damage. With that in mind, it’s vital that you maintain it so it remains in top shape. Unfortunately, a gutter system can face various kinds of issues as time goes by.

 Prevent Gutter Damage

In this article, the residential and commercial roofing contractors of Bone Dry Roofing discusses how you can prevent the various kinds of gutter damage.

Hail Damage

As your gutters are attached to your roof, you can expect it to sustain damage during a hail storm as well. Thankfully, it is possible to prevent such damage. You can install a heavy duty gutter made of copper or galvalume and have a professional reinforce or replace their brackets if needed. it is also recommended to have your gutters inspected to ensure they’re installed correctly, and secured as they should be.

Snow Damage

It can be problematic to let snow and ice to melt on your gutters as they can freeze while inside. To prevent this from occurring, invest in a gutter de-icing system and insulate your attic so the snow remains as powder and doesn’t melt. Other than that, make sure the gutters are reinforced as well to bear the weight of any ice that freezes on the gutter. If you aren’t comfortable doing this on your own, don’t hesitate to approach the gutter replacement pros of Bone Dry Roofing.

Water Damage

Water should be able to flow freely through your gutters in order to prevent moisture damage on your roof and your home. However, surprisingly enough, water can also damage your gutter system. With that in mind, consider layering the gutters with water-resistant paint to prevent cracking and seal any breaks in your gutters to prevent water damage.


On the other hand, when it comes to clogging, prevention is fairly simple. Have a professional remove any debris that falls in them every now and then and install gutter guards on your gutters to minimize the debris that can find its way into them in the future. Clogs are especially prominent on homes in areas with many surrounding trees, as leaves and other foliage debris fall or are blown around in the wind.

We had Bone Dry do masonry, roofing & gutter for us. Everyone we dealt with was professional, polite & on time. We were actually amazed how fast they did the roof & it looked great. Actually everything looked great

The experience of working with all of the folks at Bone Dry Roofing was top notch. Detailed photos and videos were provided for the initial inspection of the roof and then multiple photos were provided throughout the installation. I live in another state and was very well pleased working with them long distance. They made it very easy and stress free. The shingle roof - and all new decking - was replaced in less than 7 hours. Other teams of theirs will be back to replace the b pipe and the gutters next week.
