Reasons For Installing Gutter Guards

Nobody likes cleaning gutters. No one likes to lift or bend over to reach hard-to-reach places. However, a breach of duty can cause permanent damage to the roof, basement, foundation, facade and even the inside of your home.

Installing good quality gutter protector systems are the permanent solution to your gutter cleaning problems. The gutter divider mounts directly to your existing gutter and mounts to your roof without screws. They prevent leaves, dirt, and debris from getting into your gutters so water can drain properly out of your home.

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

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

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

Puddles are your home's worst enemy. When your gutters aren't working properly because they're frozen or filled with dirt, your soffits and wall panels absorb rainwater and begin to rot.

In cold weather, the water in the clogged gutters freezes in a powerful jet of ice. Gutters are often damaged because they are not designed to withstand that much weight.
