Be Ready for Snow & Ice With Helmet Heat®

Helmet Heat® is a unique product that has improved the lives of countless homeowners since it was first introduced to the market. When used in combination with Gutter Helmet®, the best gutter protection system, Helmet Heat prevents the formation of dangerous ice dams, icicles and snowpack in gutters. 

By keeping the eaves warmed, Helmet Heat can prevent serious hazards such as roof damage, falling ice, slippery steps and walkways, and other safety concerns that may come up when the weather turns frigid. Helmet Heat also helps prevent potential injuries that could occur when homeowners climb a ladder to clear icicles from the eaves.

How Helmet Heat® Works

The innovative secret behind the Helmet Heat ice reduction system is a thin, self-regulating electric cable that only heats up when the temperature drops. When temperatures warm, the cable immediately cools down on its own, without having to be turned off, saving a homeowner time and money. This not only makes the cable effective, but also highly efficient. Helmet Heat works in sync with Gutter Helmet gutter covers for year-round protection of your home. Gutter Helmet stops leaves and other debris from collecting in the gutters and creating clogs, while Helmet Heat heated gutter cap prevents the formation of ice.

Concealed Cables Improve Aesthetics

In addition to being highly effective and efficient, Helmet Heat is also easy to conceal. The cable is hidden inside the gutter itself, so there are no unsightly cables to mar the roofline. In fact, Gutter Helmet’s patented 48-gauge aluminum bracket is specially designed to hold and conceal the Helmet Heat cable, so you can continue to have smooth, uninterrupted lines on your home’s exterior.

Avoid Issues with Your Gutters!

If your gutters fail, they are more likely to do so in fall or winter. Cold weather, increased precipitation and wind storms all wreak havoc on gutters. However, lack of maintenance and cleaning can ruin them, too. You can hold back damage by troubleshooting gutter issues and following good gutter cleaning tips at your Oklahoma City home. Here are six common problems and how to avoid them:

  • Joint separation: Joint separation refers to wear and tear between gutter section fastenings. The problem happens when debris builds up and clog the gutters. Between water backup and debris weight, gutters eventually sag and fall apart. If you wish to fix this on your own, know that glue or caulk will not be enough to get gutters back in shape. You must rivet the pieces together by drilling holes in overlapping edges and inserting ⅛” rivets. That will secure the joints and keep your gutters in one piece.
  • Ice dams: Ice dams form from snow melting off your roof. As the water flows down, it enters your gutters and freezes there. If you do not remove it, ice continues to accumulate, and you will have an ice dam. Eventually, the ice dam’s weight pulls down your gutters and may take parts of your roof with it. The best way to avoid this problem is to remove extra water before it freezes and clear snow out of your gutters.
  • Clogs: When you do not clean your gutters, leaves, sticks and dirt eventually accumulate.  If it sits long enough, bird droppings fertilize this dirt, and you will have the rooftop garden you never wanted! Not only will the weight eventually bring down your gutters, but water cannot run through them. Ultimately, you suffer the effects of poor drainage and blocked gutters. Thorough cleaning when the weather allows prevents this problem.
  • Incorrect downspout location: Water leaves your roof through the downspout. If the downspout rests at the wrong angle, water pools around your home. This accumulation threatens your landscaping and foundation integrity. You can also suffer basement floods as your foundation cracks. When installing downspouts, set them at an angle and extend them several feet from your home to keep water away from your foundation.
  • Leaks: Leaks arise with loose fasteners, cracks and holes. Most wear and tear occurs around the fasteners and diverts water from the gutter and into the fascia boards. Unless you fix leaks, the unguided water will damage your roof. Fix the leaks by purchasing a special sealer or glue from your hardware store and follow instructions for applying it.
  • Poor sloping: Gutters need a slope to divert water. The recommended slope is ¼” per 10 feet of gutters. Installers offer the experience to ensure this slope, but many DIY types fail to meet this standard and experience water backing up through the gutter system. The best way to avoid this problem is to hire a skilled gutter contractor.

If following gutter cleaning tips and troubleshooting gutter issues in Oklahoma City is something you’d prefer to leave to the pros, L & S Seamless Guttering can help. Our services include the installation and repair of gutters. We can also add rain guards and surface drains to control water accumulation on your property. Call us today to schedule an estimate.

3 Signs Your Roof Needs to Get Cleaned

Have you been ignoring your roof? There’s no reason to feel ashamed if the answer is “yes” – it often drops to the bottom of a home maintenance checklist. But a pressure washing service is one of the best ways that you can preserve your roofing for up to a decade longer. To put it another way, this means you’re saving yourself a 5-digit expense and getting better curb appeal in the process.

Here are a few surefire signs that your roof is in need of professional care. If you see any of these indicators, give our professionals a call. We’re on it!

Moss is creeping in

Unfortunately for our roofs, moss feels right at home in our temperate climate. We use a low pressure washing solution to remove the existing growth and prevent it from coming back in the future.

Black streaks are taking over

Often referred to as “zebra stripes,” these streaks take over your roof in the form of vertical, dark lines. They’re caused by mold and they can do a number on your curb appeal. Even worse: They compromise the quality of your roofing, as they eat away at your shingles.

Your roof looks like it needs TLC

Sometimes, your roof isn’t riddled with black streaks, and they don’t have moss. It just looks dirty. A low pressure washing solution is the best way to revive the curb appeal of your roofing and bring a longer lifetime to each and every shingle.

A clean roof doesn’t just help your property’s first impression – it also keeps your homeowners insurance within compliance. With an annual low pressure washing service from Superior Pressure Washing, you’re getting a beautiful property, cost savings, and quality that really counts.

Attention Snowbirds: Are You Worried About Winter Damage to Your Home?

Have you ever seen a home covered with a thick blanket of snow in the winter, with icicles hanging from the eaves, and thought, “What a beautiful, cozy home!”? Chances are, if you’re observing icicles, that home’s beauty is only skin deep.

The Dangers of Icicles

Icicles are one of the hazards commonly seen in the winter. While they may look pretty, their heavy weight can tear a gutter system completely off a house. They can also cause other damage and injure animals and people, whether by falling on them or by leading to accidents indirectly when homeowners try to climb up to the roofline to remove them. 

Icicles are a common symptom of ice damming, which happens when heat from the interior of the house melts snow on the roof. This melted snow then refreezes along the roof line, causing further snowmelt to back up behind the ice dam. This standing water can then leak into the house and cause devastating water damage that can affect the walls, ceilings and insulation.

How Gutter Helmet® & Helmet Heat® Protect Your Gutters & Roof

For “snowbirds” who leave their Northern homes when the weather turns cold and aren’t available to monitor what’s happening with their roof, the threat of ice and gutter damage can be particularly worrisome. That’s where Helmet Heat® and Gutter Helmet® rain gutter covers come in. Gutter Helmet provides the best gutter protection by permanently stopping costly damage caused by clogged gutters, ice dams and other common rain gutter system problems by keeping leaves and debris out of the gutters. Helmet Heat takes that protection a step further. This self-regulating heating cable is installed inside Gutter Helmet gutter guards, causing snow and ice to melt, which means they don’t have a chance to build up and cause damage.

Helmet Heat ice reduction systems never need to be turned on or off, so you can rest easy knowing that your home will remain protected while you’re away for the winter. You can be assured that when you return in the spring, your roof and gutters will be just as you left them – clog-free and intact!

Reasons to Have Your Business Pressure Washed This Fall

If you’re considering different ways to prepare your business for the winter months, pressure washing is one of the most critical services to consider. Pressure washing your business in the fall provides numerous benefits to business owners that are conscious about preparing their properties for harsher conditions.

We’ve compiled a list of four advantages of pressure washing your business before the winter temperatures drop. Let’s explore them in further detail below:

1. Improve Your Business’s Appearance

The first advantage of using a pressure washing service is improving your business’s curb appeal. If your paint, awnings, sidewalks, or other property elements are looking worn or faded, there’s no need to replace them–pressure washing can do the trick!

By removing dirt, grime, and other buildups, a pressure washing service can restore brightness to your property’s aesthetic appearance. You’ll be surprised by how much your property’s appearance can change after a quick pressure wash.

2. Prepare for the Holiday Season

Many business owners experience their busiest months during the holidays. If your business expects an increase in customers and visitors, it makes sense to pressure wash your property thoroughly.

Many business owners employ pressure washing and other maintenance efforts in the lead up to the holiday season. It’s an excellent way to ensure that you’re ready to welcome a large volume of eager customers or clients when foot traffic increases, and they will be more likely to visit your business if the exterior is in pristine condition.

3. Increase the Lifespan of Surfaces

Pressure washing can increase the lifespan of your surfaces. If you don’t pressure wash your business before the temperatures drop, then ice and snow can trap harmful chemicals, oils, sludges, and other irritants on the surface of your parking lots, walkways, and sidewalks.

By removing buildups with a pressure washer, you can ensure that your parking lot will be protected from the damage caused by harsh chemicals and products. If improving the longevity of your property is essential to your business, make sure to pressure wash before the ice begins forming!

4. Make Your Property Safer for Visitors and Staff

If you want to protect your visitors and staff from potential hazards, it’s essential to utilize a pressure washing service before winter begins. By removing sludge, grime, moss, and other buildups from various parts of your property, you can rest assured your business will be much safer to visit.

Also, pressure washing is a much safer alternative to other cleaning methods. For example, using harsh chemicals to clean walls, driveways, walkways, parking lots, and other property surfaces will potentially expose harmful substances. Pressure washing is one of the safest cleaning methods available to business owners!
