Gutter Helmet Cover with Helmet Heat

Winter gutter protection begins with protecting your home from ice damns and build up that can cause damage and pose a risk to you and your family. How can icy gutters be dangerous you ask? It’s simple.  As freezing temperatures approaches, standing water in gutters left as a result of faulty or clogged gutters can begin to ice over. Once this happens, gutters can no longer drain. Ice damns can begin to form.  If gutters aren’t clear and free flowing, rain and melting snow can build up in gutters and overflow onto fascia and down siding, re-freezing and causing water damage to the interior and exterior of homes. If this happens, run hot water over your gutters to thaw the ice, and then clean them immediately.

Gutter Helmet of Indiana installs the one and only, multi-patented Gutter Helmet solid gutter systemGutter Helmet guarantees that your rain gutters are protected for life by keeping leaves out. Plus for added protection against snow and ice, we offer our proprietary Helmet Heat gutter deicing system. It installs over your gutter covers to prevent the build up of icicles and ice damns.

If your having problems this winter with ice dams or overflowing gutters, call the gutter protection experts at Gutter Helmet of Indiana today for a free no obligation estimate 1-800-217-6355.

 

Top 5 Reasons to Replace Your Aluminum or Cement Siding with Vinyl

Alcoa Vinyl Siding

Thinking of replacing your old cement or aluminum siding? The expert siding contractors at Trim A Seal have compiled a list of the top 5 reasons you should consider installing vinyl siding instead.

  1. Great quality that can withstand rocks from lawnmowers, weather, etc.
    2. Significantly improve face value and appearance of your home at low prices.
    3. Easily replace a single damaged piece of siding.
    4. Only maintenance is to spray and wash twice a year.
    5. Long lasting and durable.

In addition to these points, there are many other positive benefits from switching to Alcoa, Variform, or Certainteed vinyl siding. Homeowners have found that installing Alcoa, Certainteed, or Variform vinyl siding is an eco-friendly alternative. When compared to other siding products such as cement, vinyl siding leads the way in energy efficiency. One reason vinyl is considered more efficient, is that the home’s exterior doesn’t need to be repainted every few couple years like fiber cement siding. Because of the light weight of Certainteed, Variform, and Alcoa vinyl siding, less energy is used in transporting it vs. heavier, less fuel efficient products like cement or brick. Also, vinyl siding is recyclable!

Another bonus when it comes to having a green, energy efficient home is that insulated vinyl siding can add 10% – 25% additional R-value to wall systems to reduce energy bills and help the earth at the same time.

Tagged as: , , , , ,

Seamless gutters or continuous gutters, as they are sometimes called – are the most commonly installed type of gutter system installed on Indiana homes.

They’re popular because they have no joints or fasteners to come loose and cause leaking. Less leaks means less water damage to your home and overall, a better performing gutter system. One of the biggest advantages of seamless rain gutters is that they minimize the amount of maintenance you need to perform on your home. Many of these gutters are also hung from your roofing far more securely than the traditional aluminum sort, lending an additional level of security to the home.

Seamless gutters are typically too hard for the average home owner to install on their own. Trim A Seal has been installing seamless aluminum gutters for over 30 years. Our trained gutter experts will use reinforced brackets and the proper alignment techniques to securely install your gutter system.

At Trim A Seal of Indiana, our trained, licensed and insured team of gutter professionals install  gutters and downspouts in a variety of colors in both Aluminum and Copper gutter styles. We offer 5” seamless gutters and 6” seamless gutters for homes that have additional drainage requirements. Call now to schedule a free, in home estimate 800-217-6355 or isit www.trimaseal.com  today.
