One way to enhance the effectiveness of your gutter system is to install gutter guards, also known as gutter covers. As their name implies, gutter guards are designed to cover the exposed areas of your gutters and prevent them from becoming clogged with leaves and other debris. If you have questions about whether gutter guards or covers make sense for your home, we can help you make a wise decision that meets your needs and protects your home.
The Benefits of Using Gutter Guards
Installing gutter guards, gutter covers and gutter screens can provide you with many benefits that keep your home in good condition, adding to its longevity and overall value:
- Designed to work with your existing gutter system, gutter guards can be added to what you already have in place, rather than requiring a whole new system replacement.
- They help keep birds, squirrels and other animals from building nests in your gutters.
- By blocking debris and leaves from entering your gutters, gutter guards lessen your need to clean your gutters as frequently as you would without them.
- Gutter guards can prevent stagnant water build-ups that could otherwise cause leaks in your home or provide breeding grounds for insects.
- By preventing the buildup of rotting leaves, animal droppings, moisture that doesn’t drain properly and more, gutter guards can add longevity to your gutter system.
