3 Things Gutter Guards Can Do for Your Home

3 Things Gutter Guards Can Do for Your Home

Gutters don’t always get the attention they deserve until a roof repair is in order, but gutter guards are even worse off. What many homeowners don’t realize, however, is that gutter protection systems have a lot to offer. So, what can a gutter guard do for you?

It can:

  1. Save Time and Money 

Gutter guards are designed to keep debris out of gutters. This means you no longer have to schedule gutter cleaning, freeing up time and money that would have gone to gutter maintenance. This also means you now have time and money you can invest elsewhere in your home to improve it.

  1. Prolong Gutter Service Life

With dirt and debris out of the way, you don’t have to worry about buildup resulting into clogs in your gutters and roof repair. With rainwater flowing away from your home as it should, you also don’t have to be concerned about water pooling that promotes moisture exposure and increases the likelihood of rust forming in your gutters. Without premature deterioration, your gutters are not only likely to last long but may also enjoy additional years on top of their rated service life.

  1. Prevent Ice Dam Formation

Without debris buildup, snowmelt during winter drains away effectively, leaving nothing that could freeze again and form into ice dams. This means you don’t have to worry about ice dams as well, which are problematic because they increase chances of a roof collapsing due to the immense additional weight of ice forming in gutter troughs.
