Cleaning your gutters regularly is necessary to prevent overflowing rainfall from causing water damage on your roof, home, and foundation. However, you’d probably rather spend your free time doing something else instead of balancing on a ladder scooping leaves, twigs, mud, and moss out of your gutters. Maintaining your gutters doesn’t have to be such a hassle. What if we told you that you can make things easier on yourself by investing in gutter guards?
Gutter guards are mesh screens that are installed over the top of gutters in order to prevent debris from accumulating in the gutters themselves. By making sure your gutters stay unclogged, gutter guards ensure that water is diverted into the designated place. You also avoid having to deal with rotting or mold growth that might occur if water were to get inside your house due to improper drainage. Keeping your gutters unclogged also allows you to avoid having lots of standing water, which attracts mosquitoes and other pests.
Gutter guards are well worth the investment when you consider how costly it can be to deal with structural damage to your home due to water damage.
