How Weather and Climate Changes Affect Exterior Conditions of Homes

Weather can easily damage the exterior of your home. As climate change continues to affect the atmosphere, it creates a global imbalance that is changing the earth’s climate. Most current residential buildings are not designed to withstand the dramatic shifts in the seasonal conditions.  GutterBrush is a family run business that designs eco-friendly gutter guards to help protect your home from the different weather patterns.

As the climate continues to change, homeowners must take extra care to make sure their homes are ready for any type of weather. One area on the exterior of the home often overlooked is the gutter system. Gutters are an essential part of the top structure of the home. They are designed to remove excess water from the top and move it way from the home so it does not cause damage to the surface. As a homeowner, protecting your gutters is the first step to keeping water related damage from causing expensive repairs to your home. GutterBrush Gutter Guards are designed to help keep your gutters functioning and allow the water to flow uninterrupted through your rain gutters.


Hurricanes, blizzards, tornadoes, thunderstorms, and other severe weather systems are becoming more violent, causing devastating damage to properties. Poor moisture drainage can cause serious interior water damage, foundation issues, and shifts to the homes structure. Homes that are not made up to code are especially vulnerable to extreme weather caused by climate change. GutterBrush Gutter Guards are effective tools to help alleviate many of these concerns. The easy-to-install bristled gutter protector keeps dirt and debris from getting into your eaves so water can flow through evenly and quickly.

Insuring your most valuable asset can also be challenging as weary insurance companies are less inclined to offer coverage in areas where violent storms are becoming more common. Installing a cost effective device like the GutterBrush Gutter Guard will help protect your home from storm related damage while making the insurance companies happy. The cylindrical guards are made with the highest quality polypropylene bristles and galvanized steel wire to protect your gutters and extend their life for several years.

As the climate continues to change, contractors must find better ways to construct residential buildings using eco-friendly materials that are resilient enough to withstand the stark contrast between the internal and external atmospheres. At GutterBrush, our Gutter Guard is designed to help protect your home's gutters from cold and heat related issues including ice damming, warping, sagging, and uneven expansion and contraction common with other gutter guards. 

Gutterbrush Gutter Guard keeps your gutters flowing so debris does not block your downspouts. Clogged eaves from flying debris can cause water damage to your inside walls and ceiling from forceful storms and wind gales. The cylindrical shape of a gutter guard helps protect your eaves from warping during the summer heat. They also stop ice dams from forming and continue to keep your gutters open and clear during the cold winter months.

Planning for more severe weather patterns caused by climate change is crucial in today’s housing industry. Homes build to code to survive extreme climates will have a longer lifespan than improperly built houses. At GutterBrush, we make guards to protect your gutters from severe weather patterns in all climates.
