If your gutters are frequently clogged with leaves and other debris, you may be interested in gutter guards. We’ve answered a list of frequently asked questions to give you a better idea about the benefits of installing gutter guards.
1. What causes gutters to get clogged?
Clogs usually happen when leaves and other outdoor debris fall from trees and end up in the gutters.
2. Why do I need to keep my gutters unclogged?
Gutters work by directing rainwater away from your home to prevent damage. When they’re clogged, they aren’t as effective.

When your gutters are clogged, your home isn’t protected against basement leaks, foundation staining, mold growth, and other issues caused by water damage.

Gutter guards help prevent clogging so your gutters can direct rainwater away from the home.
5. How do gutter guards work?
Gutter guards are specially designed to prevent clogs by keeping debris out, without blocking water flow.
