You can use gutter guards to help provide better gutter protection for your home or other structure.
Many people loathe the notion of having to clean the gutters. Furthermore, leaf and debris that get stuck in the gutters can cause even more damage than you might think.
At Leafbusters we have different types of gutter guards you can use to protect your home so that you can keep your gutters unclogged.
Gutter Guards are a Good Idea
You may want to consider getting gutter guards if you do not like to take the risk of climbing to your roof and cleaning the gutters. This can be dangerous, especially if you are not experienced with cleaning the gutters.
It can be difficult to negotiate using your hands to clean the gutters if you are on a ladder and need to use both hands. There is also the risk that you can fall off a roof.
You should also consider guards to prevent some other types of problems as well. When the leaves, pine needles and other debris get stuck in the gutters, it hinders the gutter’s ability to perform its function routing water away from the home.
The water can leave unsightly stains on your home as well as cause larger problems with leaks and weakened roofs, especially wooden roofs.
Maintenance Made Easy with Gutter Guards
Clogged gutters can also cause another problem that you may not have considered. When the debris that is stuck in the gutters gets wet, it becomes quite heavy.
The weight can force the gutters to detach from its structure. You not only have an unattractive blight on your home, but you will also have to spend the money it takes to have the structure repaired.
You can always hire a professional to clean your gutters, but the cost for this can add up. When you use gutter guards, you reduce the need to clean the gutters so often.
