Cleaning out your gutters can be a miserable job, let alone a dangerous one. Thankfully, there’s a solution that doesn’t involve climbing a ladder. Installing gutter guards can be a smart choice to protect your home and your health, but it’s important to invest in the right system.
What do gutters do?
Gutters help collect and redirect rainwater away from the base of your home. For your gutters and downspouts to work properly, they need to be completely free of debris and leaves. Over time your gutters can get clogged, which means water can flow over the side of your gutters, pool around the base of your home, and lead to serious structural issues.
How do gutter guards help?
When you install gutter guards, you’ll drastically reduce the amount of maintenance you need to perform on your home. They prevent debris and leaves from clogging up the gutters, which means you won’t have to clean them as much. Without any built-up debris in your gutter, these guards will also prevent vermin and insects from calling your gutters a home.
Gutter guards can also help to prevent premature rust and corrosion since moisture-logged leaves won’t get stuck in the drainage system. Likewise, you’ll see better water flow especially during heavy storms, which can help prevent major damage to your foundation.
Eliminate the risks
Gutter cleaning is time consuming, dirty, and dangerous. Climbing the ladder to clean out the debris and leaves from your gutters can be daunting. With gutter guards you not only minimize any potential damage to your home, you also minimize serious risk to your health and injuries.
