Doc’s Q & A: Spring Tips for Gutters

Doc’s Q & A: Spring Tips for Gutters and Gutter Helmet

Question:
We had Gutter Helmet with Heated Helmet installed last summer and I’m enjoying Saturday golfing rather Saturday-gutter-cleaning! Is it really true, though, that my gutters are “care-free?”

Doc’s Answer:
The Gutter Helmet promise, to never clean your gutters again, is true. Still, your home is an investment and it’s worthwhile to do a walk-around inspection in April and May. If you see branches or tree limbs that are touching the house or overhanging the roof, you’ll want to cut those back.  This is just good practice.  Falling limbs are the main reason we are called out to replace panels.

Hose the Nose
If you have a lot of trees around and overhanging the house, you should plan on squirting the “nose” of your Gutter Helmet using the special brass nozzle we left with you at the time of installation. It easily attaches to a garden hose so you can safely spray the nose with both feet on the ground. You should clean the Gutter Helmet nose once or twice a year if you have a lot of trees overhanging the house. It is a good thing to “keep your nose clean” as dirt build-up on the “nose” can diminish optimum performance and truly never clean your gutters again!

For homeowners with Helmet Heat:
In the Spring, if your Helmet Heat is on a switch or breaker you’ll want to be sure you turn it off.  It did it’s work this past winter. Now, go enjoy that Saturday golf game!

"I have been impressed with Atlas home improvement they do things the way I would. Kelly was our installer and was unbelievably hard-working very conscientious and even went the extra mile and called in a grizzly Veteran plumber when presented with a problem. We have used Atlas before and will again soon!"

"This was our second experience with Atlas. The shower in our last home was truly a primary selling feature. We returned to Atlas because of the quality of the job and the professionalism of the install. We were happy to see the same installers we had at our other house three years ago arrive here today. Chad and Bill did an excellent job. We received the same professionalism and quality we expected. They arrived with all the materials they would need, no hidden surprises, quality materials. They truly live up to everything they promise!"

"Recently, Atlas Home Improvement finished the second phase of my bathroom remodel. Matt and Chad were here every morning on time, stated in their morning phone call. They were friendly, efficient, knew their job and the job site was always in order and clean. They even went out of their way to make sure I was aware of all aspects of the job. They were GREAT!!! This is a great company!!! Very clean and considerate while putting in my new shower. Time the sales consultant was wonderful and really listened to what I want and was never pushy or tried to sell me something I didn't want. David did a wonderful job installing my shower. Great product they sell. I recommend this company highly!"

"Dave put in a stair lift for me and I was very, very pleased with the whole experience. He assessed the situation with an eye on my safety and recommended changing the side of the staircase the lift was to be installed on. He did the installation quietly and quickly and without creating any mess. And he made sure I understood how the equipment worked and watched me test ride it. I could not have been more satisfied with the whole process. I would highly recommend Atlas to any senior looking to modify their home so that they can age in place."

"We were experiencing temperature problems with our brand new walk-in tub, in that the temperature would not get very hot. After a call to Atlas we were scheduled by the office staff for an appointment within 2 days, which we very much appreciated. Dave arrived on time and immediately diagnosed the problem - and he quickly fixed it. Dave was very professional, pleasant, friendly, and knowledgeable. Our problem has now been fixed! Thank you Atlas for having such a great installation, office, and repair staff."

"We had our shower completely re-done by Dave. It was a custom job that involved replacing a sub floor and some plumbing issues. They were friendly, hard workers, our shower turned out perfect! I strongly recommend Atlas Home Improvement they stand by their work!"

– Sherry G. of google

"Our dealings with Atlas Home Improvement have been nothing but a delight. We had booked them through Home Depot Home Services which had a salesman come out and was easy to deal with and took his time to explain all of the steps to the process. Atlas delivered the exact way they had promised we were in the loop knowing when our materials were ordered when they came in and to finally setting up the appointment. The workmanship was 5 star excellent and we could not have been happier with our new shower enclosure it really made a difference!"
