Your home’s gutter system plays a big role in keeping your home safe from damage caused by water runoff. Because of this, you need to do everything you can to help minimize the risks of gutter problems occurring. Roofers recommend installing gutter guards as your best option, but why is this the case?
Keep Gutters Clog-Free
Clogs caused by debris are the biggest reason why gutters experience problems. A gutter guard is especially designed to keep debris from getting into the gutter trough. Since debris can’t get in, the gutter doesn’t get clogged and water runoff is safely directed away from the house.
Save With Gutter Guards
Aside from preventing clogs from occurring, roofers say that installing gutter guards can also help you save in the long run. You don’t have to worry too much about clogs, so cleaning and maintenance takes a lot less time and resources. Combine that with the host of moisture-related issues you avoid and you’re talking hundreds or even thousands of dollars worth of savings.
Different Gutter Guard Options
Gutter guards are available in a wide variety of styles and mechanisms. Some use bristles (gutter brushes) to filter out debris. Others use the water’s surface tension to separate debris from the runoff. Last but not least, gutter guards like our Leaf Relief guards use perforated surfaces to do the same job.
Installed by Experts
In order to work optimally, gutter guards have to be installed according to their manufacturer’s specifications. This is why experts recommend getting a roof and home remodeler to have the gutter guards installed. Aside from avoiding issues related to installation mistakes, it also keeps your gutter guards covered by product and service warranties.
