Clogged gutters negate their benefits. Depending on the geographic region, they can fill with leaves, pine needles, oak tassels, asphalt and other shingle debris, and nests that harbor infestation. They can trap stagnant water in the debris and become a breeding area for mosquitoes. In areas subject to winter conditions, clogged gutters cause dangerous icicles and water damming, forcing melting water to back under shingles and leak into the interior. Install gutter covers to protect your home!
Save Time & Money
Gutter guards prevent debris and leaves from accumulating in your gutters and clogging up the system. If you do not have gutter guards, you will eventually have to clean your gutters or have them cleaned by a professional. In either case, this takes time and money.
Even with gutter guards, some debris may inevitably collect on the top of the gutter guards. However, gutter guards are exponentially easier to clean than digging into clogged gutters to remove handfuls of twigs, seeds, leaves, and debris. As is the case with nearly everything else on your home, even gutter guards may need occasional maintenance.
