Reasons To Install Gutter Guards

Nobody likes to clean gutters. No one likes pulling upstairs or bending over to reach hard-to-reach places. Nonetheless, neglect of duty can cause irreversible damage to your roof, basement, foundation, facade, and even inside your home.

Good quality and best gutter guards are the permanent solutions to your gutter cleaning problems. Gutter dividers mount directly over existing gutters and adjust to your roof without screws. They prevent leaves, dirt, and debris from entering your gutters so water can drain properly from your home.

If your gutters are clogged with leaves, they can actually cause more damage than no gutters at all. In gutter covers, the principles of gravity and surface tension ensure that leaves and debris float to the ground. 

Rainwater sticks to the nose of the gutter guard and flows unimpeded into your gutter and bottom pipe.

Hundreds of people fall down the stairs every year cleaning the sewers. The result is serious injuries such as fractures and head injuries. People over the age of 50 have a higher risk of injury. Gutters protect you from climbing these dangerous stairs.

Puddles are your home's biggest enemy. If your gutters aren't working properly because they're frozen or filled with dirt, your soffit and facade boards will absorb rainwater and begin to rot.

In cold weather, water in clogged gutters freezes in heavy jets of ice. Gutters are often damaged because they are not made to withstand that much weight.
