How Gutter Guards Protect Your Gutters and Keep Them Running Smoothly
These days, your gutters are likely to be under more stress than ever before, especially here in the Pacific Northwest where we get a lot of rain, and with our heavy winter winds, there are more leaves falling from the trees around your home. No matter what the reason, you probably don’t want to have to worry about clogged gutters and overflowing rainwater damaging your home and seeping into your basement or crawlspace or along your home’s foundation. Luckily, if you get gutter guards installed by our professionals at The GutterSmiths LLC, we can help keep those gutters running free and clear!
What Are Gutter Guards?
Gutter guards are still a fairly new home upgrade that helps to prevent debris from clogging up your gutters. There’s no doubt they can help you keep your gutters clear and clean and if you deal with a ladder every year clearing out your gutters or paying a company to clean out those gutters, you’ve probably at least considered what it would be like for your home or business. You might not realize how often your gutters need cleaning or what all of those noises mean at night. No matter how many leaves fall in during one storm, gutter guards are always protecting your gutters from damage or getting clogged and helping them to stay in good shape for years to come. You can have peace of mind knowing that you’re working with gutter contractors who know just how important gutter guards are for keeping everything running smoothly!
Benefits of Using Gutter Guards
Gutter guards are the best way to make sure your gutters stay in great shape for years to come. They help prevent heavy rain from washing leaves and debris into the gutter, which clogs your gutters, preventing them from doing their job properly. By installing a quality gutter guard on your house, you can expect more reliable performance over time—and be able to relax when it’s raining outside. It should also help with keeping your gutters clean: gutter guards will help keep your gutters clear and clean. Gutter guards have the added benefit of protecting your roof from water damage. Leaf debris can clog gutters and cause a leak at the seams of your roofing material or shingles. We install Standard Gutter Guard which has some of the following benefits:
- Keeps water flowing: stainless steel mesh (.0213” opening) keeps all debris from entering and clogging the gutter system
- Weather and pest resistance: mounts securely and stays firmly in place to resist high winds, a heavy amount of snow and ice, ladder damage, and pest invasion
- Fits existing gutters: available in 5” and 6”, and works with spikes, standard, and zip hangers.
- Simple installation: mounts directly to the gutter. No lifting shingles which may cause repair problems and void your roof warranty
- Recessed front lip design: slightly recessed front lip design eliminates drips during mesh saturation and helps prevent spillover in a high-flow area
