What are Gutter Guards Good For?

What are Gutter Guards Good For?

Gutters are vital components of any home. They prevent water from puddling on the roof, keep the soil around the house stabilized, and ensure that the basement or attic won’t get flooded.

Unfortunately, many homeowners neglect the upkeep of their gutters because they tend to be out-of-sight, out-of-mind on a daily basis. Cleaning them also can be a time-consuming challenge.

Fortunately, purchasing high-quality gutter guards provides an ideal solution. With the perfect gutter guard system, you’ll be able to receive the following benefits:

Have an Easier Time Cleaning the Gutters

Gutter guards are designed to stop leaves, twigs, and other debris from falling into your gutters. With guards in place, cleaning out your gutter will be much easier because there will not be debris blocking the system. The gutter guards also let you clean your gutter less frequently. Instead of the conventional twice-a-year cleaning, you can now tend to your gutters once every three to five years.

Avoid Creating Leaks and Other Types of Water Damage

The gutter’s main function is to direct rainwater to the downspouts for proper drainage. If there’s something blocking that flow, water can easily get stuck on the roof. Stagnating water is a huge problem because it can damage your roof and leak into the attic. It can also increase the risk of the following types of water damage:

  • Rust
  • Wood rot
  • Mold and mildew growth
  • Insect and pest infestation

Once your gutter guards are installed, they will prevent these issues.

Protect Your Home from Fires

If your area is prone to fires, it’s essential to protect your roof with gutter guards. Ember attacks can reach and ignite dried materials in the gutter, causing the fire to spread throughout your property. By installing gutter guards, you can reduce the chances of materials potentially catching on fire.
