Fall is right around the corner, which means the leaves will soon start changing colors and falling off the trees. While the autumn is a great time to watch football, roast marshmallows in the cool evenings and enjoy the beautiful colors during the day, it is, unfortunately, prime time for your gutters to get clogged from falling leaves and other debris!
Considering installing gutter guards but still on the fence about it? If you live in an area with a lot of trees and find that your gutters constantly get clogged, we think gutter guards can be a great solution. These gutter protection covers are systems designed to prevent clogging by keeping out debris without stopping the flow of water.
Why to Install Gutter Guards
When leaves and other debris get caught in your gutters, it can cause all types of problems. Essentially, gutter guards can help prevent:
- Roof leaks
- Basement flooding
- Gutter damage (well-protected gutters are less likely to loosen, sag or become detached)
- Damage to exterior walls and insulation
- Foundation staining
- Flower bed erosion and other landscaping problems
- Mosquito infestation (standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes)
As a homeowner, the last thing you want to deal with this fall is a costly and time-consuming problem with your house that could have been avoided! Installing gutter guards doesn’t mean that your gutters will be invincible forever, but they can help keep your gutters clear and help prevent many problems.
Also, don’t worry about ruining your home’s exterior with unattractive, bulky covers—gutter guards can be completely seamless, unable to be seen from the ground.
