Advantage Gutter Guard® and Icicles

Icicles and Your Home’s Gutters

As the cold weather progresses and precipitation begins to fall, whether its in the form of rain, freezing rain, or snow, we begin to receive calls in our office regarding icicles. Because of this, we’d like to educate you on why this may happen in order to allay any fears or concerns regarding them. 

Freezing rain will cause ice to form just like you see on road signs around town.  If Advantage Gutter Guard® has been installed in the last 60 days water may overrun the cover and form icicles due to the oils that adhere to Advantage Gutter Guard® during manufacturing and installation.  However, once the cover has been “seasoned” the water will flow into the gutter and through the system as it should. 

Icicles may form on the front edge, but, this is actually protecting you from ice building up in the gutters, which could result in pulling the gutters loose or off your home altogether.

Should any of our customers have a serious concern about icicles or any other issue, please call our office and we’d be happy to help.  If you are not currently a customer of Gutter Cover Kansas City®; but are interested in learning more about Advantage Gutter Guard®, fill out the form below to schedule an appointment for a free estimate or read our Advantage Gutter Guard ® product page.
