House with gutters and gutter guards

Gutter systems are designed to protect your home from water damage. However, no gutter system is foolproof. No matter how advanced your gutter system is, it is still susceptible to damage caused by loose debris. What’s the solution? Gutter guards—a gutter protection system. You may be wondering if gutter guards are truly worth the investment or if they’re just another gimmick. Let’s discuss the reasons why you should consider having gutter guards installed on your gutter system.

What are Gutter Guards?

Gutter guards are a type of gutter protection system that is installed over your existing gutters. They protect your gutters by filtering out debris and keeping them from getting clogged and overflowing. Gutter guards are crafted with a reliable stainless-steel mesh for the ultimate filtration system.

The Advantages of Gutter Guards

Without durable gutter guards in place, you can face numerous issues as a homeowner—from water damage to constantly cleaning out your gutters by hand. However, gutter guards can be the perfect solution to your gutter problems. Gutter guards offer a wide variety of benefits for homeowners including:

Protecting Your Home from Water Damage

If your gutters get clogged with debris and begin to overflow, they could begin to sprout leaks. While a small leak in your gutters may not sound like a problem, it can become a nightmare. Leaky gutters lead to water damage around your roofline which in turn, spreads throughout your home. This can be a costly problem to repair and may even create health hazards such as mold growth.

Keeping Your Gutters Consistently Clean

Gutter guards can save you so much time by keeping your gutters free of debris. Not only is debris buildup bad for your gutter system, but it can also be a damper on your day. No homeowner enjoys constantly having to climb up on a ladder (risking injury) to clean soggy leaves and debris from their gutter system. Also, most homeowners don’t even think to clean their gutters until it’s too late. With gutter guards installed, you’ll never have to worry about cleaning your gutters again.

Extending the Lifespan of Your Gutters

Gutter guards keep gutters from getting clogged and leaking. This can alleviate the pressure on your gutters and prolong their lifespan for many years to come.

Avoiding Insect & Vermin Infestations

Since water is consistently flowing through your gutters, your gutters can become a breeding ground for insects and vermin. However, gutter guards can help cover your gutters and keep those awful infestations from forming around your home.

Fire Protection

If there is a fire in your area, embers are bound to travel in the air. While an ember may not seem like a huge deal, it can spark a massive fire. When embers land on dried-up leaves that have been sitting in your gutters, that spark can happen right on top of your home. Gutter guards help you avoid such a disaster by keeping your gutters clear of leaves and other flammable debris.
