We’ve mentioned roofing warranties in previous blogs and alluded to the fact that some gutter guard companies’ products could potentially void a roof warranty.
This is because not all rain gutter covers are made the same way or attach to the roofing system in a manufacturer-approved manner. The last thing you want to do is inadvertently cause damage to the roof and simultaneously void the warranty!
Ideally, the roof, gutters and gutter covers work together seamlessly to help the water run off the roof and into the downspouts, draining far away from a home’s foundation or basement. Gutters are an important part of the roofing system and when they clog, they can’t do their job. When you have quality rain gutter covers, the gutters should never become clogged and the rainwater should run into the gutters and out the downspouts while debris continues over the gutter covers to the ground. Debris shouldn’t collect on the gutter covers or at the end of the roofline. In fact, rain gutter covers shouldn’t negatively affect the roof at all.
There are two types of warranties that come with a new roof: the manufacturer’s warranty and the installation warranty. Let’s focus on the one from the manufacturer that covers the shingles (or other roofing material). Because some gutter guard companies haven’t met with all the major manufacturers to have their product’s installation approved, you can’t be assured that the installation of all products will not void the manufacturer’s warranty. With Gutter Helmet®, you have the assurance that the roof’s warranty will not be impacted as we have approval for our installation and roofing manufacturers know that Gutter Helmet will never negatively impact the roofing material.
We guarantee our products and the installation our dealers perform. We are so confident in the approved Gutter Helmet installers we’ve trained that we guarantee that the gutters will remain clog-free. Plus, we know that our patented design – with the ribbed surface intended to help debris flow over the covers – is a superior design to other manufacturers’ gutter covers.
Our written guarantee not only covers the homeowner, but they can transfer the warranty to a second owner. We promise homeowners that if the gutters ever do become clogged that we’ll remove the cover, clean the gutters and then reinstall it, making any tweaks necessary to prevent future issues. We really do stand behind the product!
