Gutter guards also help to keep your gutters clean, letting only water flow right through them.
Do you have trees around your home? Very few could answer no to that question. Gutter guards are a necessary feature for most homes and other buildings where gutters are prone to get clogged with leaves, pine needles and other debris. If left unchecked, clogged gutters could cause serious structural damage to a home or building. Gutter guards prevent these problems.
For most people in the United States, trees shed their leaves during the late fall and winter seasons. Then in the spring, trees drop seedpods, buds, needles, petals and small leaves. When this happens, gutters get filled with the debris and get clogged. Gutter guards eliminate the arduous and sometimes dangerous task of cleaning your gutters. If they are neglected and do not have guards, rain water can damage your home, creating a costly problem to fix.
Gutter guards are designed to be installed over your existing gutters. Their purpose is to stop leaves and other debris from building up inside your gutters. In addition, gutter guards extend the life of your guttering and downpipes. They also protect your home by preventing water from damaging your roof, siding and foundation. Finally, they keep birds, possums, rodents and bugs from being able to nest or breed in your gutters.
