Why Gutter Guards Are Worth It

Why Gutter Guards Are Worth It

Nobody likes to clean their gutters. It is a chore that people tend to put off until torrential rains remind them why a clean gutter is necessary. When gutters clog with leaves and debris, problems such as roof damage and flooding become possibilities.

A great way to avoid clogged gutters is to invest in gutter guards. They will prevent water and debris from accumulating in your gutter and causing problems for your home.

Learning About Gutter Guards

Even with gutter guards, it is important to clean your gutters at least once a year. To reduce the amount of work involved in that process, or to extend the time between cleanings, gutter guards should be installed. These guards will keep your gutters generally free of debris and make them less of a hassle to clean.

There are different types of gutter guards available, including:

  • Brush Gutter Guards – The brush bristles keep solid and large debris from clogging up your gutter.
  • Mesh Gutter Guards – Also called screen gutter guards, these keep debris and leaves from getting into your gutter.
  • Micro-Mesh Gutter Guards – The tight mesh prevents even small debris from getting into your gutter, allowing water to flow through.
  • Sponge Gutter Guards – These fit perfectly in your gutter and prevent debris from entering while allowing water to flow freely.

No matter what kind of gutter guard you choose, adding an extra layer of protection on your room will prevent your gutter from clogging and eliminate the need for messy gutter cleanups.
