Gutters are integral to protecting your roof and preventing leaks, and one of the best ways to care for your gutters is to keep them clean. Gutter guards are a valuable extension of your gutters because they block debris, like leaves and twigs, from getting into your gutters and creating a blockage.
Here are some benefits and reasons why you should invest in gutter guards.
- Saves you time and money – Cleaning out your gutters regularly takes time. Whether you do it monthly or seasonally, you will spend a lot of time on a ladder digging leaves out of your gutters. Instead of spending your own time or paying someone to do it, gutter guards will keep your gutters clear of clutter.
- Eliminate pest intrusion –Have you ever had a bird or squirrel build a nest in your gutters? With gutter guards, you won’t have to worry about certain animals or pests building a home in your gutters. Instead, the gutter guards will block them out and keep your gutters pest free.
- Prevents ice damage – If water gets stuck in your gutters during the winter, it can freeze, creating ice dams and serious problems. With gutter guards installed, you won’t have to worry about this issue.
- Prevents rust and corrosion –When damp debris sits in your gutters for prolonged periods, it can increase the chances of your gutters rusting or corroding. Having a way to prevent debris from sitting in your gutters will help prevent the early stages of corrosion.
