A Leaf Filter That Can Keep the Gutters Clear on Your Eagan, MN, Area Home
A leaf filter from Gutter Helmet of Minnesota is guaranteed to keep the gutters on your Eagan, Minnesota, area home flowing freely, eliminating the need for you to climb a ladder to clean your gutters ever again. The Gutter Helmet leaf filter works by taking advantage of surface tension – water’s natural tendency to cling to the surface over which it travels. Rainwater or snowmelt flow down your roof and, when it hits the gutter protector, clings to the rounded bullnose edge and is channeled into your home’s gutter system. Debris such as leaves, twigs, seed pods, and pine needles are forced off the edge of the roof and harmlessly down to the ground below.
By keeping your gutters free of unwanted material, your new leaf filter will help to prevent costly water damage to your Eagan, MN, area home, such as:
- Roof rot – Pooled water from clogged gutters can seep into your roofing material and rot the wood underneath
- Landscape erosion – Water that splashes over the edge of your gutter system can wash away topsoil around your home and damage the foliage
- Basement flooding – If water collects near your foundation walls, it can find its way into your basement and cause substantial damage, as well as foster the growth of mold and mildew
