What Are Gutter Guards?

Gutter guards come in different styles, but all essentially work to protect your gutters from leaf debris or other debris from getting inside your gutters and drains and causing issues. Screen gutter guards allow water to freely flow through while acting as a leaf guard to stop leaves from backing up the drainage and creating dams. There are many benefits you get after installing gutter guards; continue reading to learn how gutter protection can save you from high gutter repair costs long-term.

What Are The Benefits of Gutter Guards

Because gutter guards are designed to keep leaves and other large debris from blocking up your gutters they can help tremendously with gutter cleaning, gutter repair costs, and general maintenance. These leaf screens can stop ice blockage from building in the colder months, help with more efficient water drainage, stop pests from building nests inside your gutters, and more! Gutter guards installation is a simple way to reduce overall gutter maintenance and repairs, and can even prevent damage to your roof, siding, and walls in some circumstances.

Stopping Leaves from Getting in Your Gutter

Stopping Leaves From Getting In Your Gutter

One of the most obvious benefits is that installing guards on your gutters will stop any sizable debris from getting into the gutter and clogging it. Leaves and large sticks can get trapped in gutters and cause the flow of water to slow. In circumstances where the water flow is too slow for the rate of the rainfall water may backup in the gutters and overflow along the side of your house.

Gutter Cleaning With and Without Guards

Gutter Cleaning With and Without Guards

Cleaning gutters that have a gutter guard is typically much easier than cleaning a gutter without leaf guards installed. Because large debris gets stopped before going into the gutter it may blow away on its own, and is much less likely to turn into a blockade of wet leaf sludge that has to be manually removed. Even when leaf buildup occurs it can simply be swept away making cleaning significantly faster and less labor intensive.

Gutter Protection Maintenance Money Savings

Gutter Protection, Maintenance, & Money Savings

One of the best benefits one gets after having gutter guards installed on their gutters is the reduced cost of maintenance. While gutters still should be professionally cleaned a couple of times a year to ensure your roof and home are safe, the chance they will need additional maintenance cleaning from blockages is greatly reduced. A gutter guard is a great way to help reduce excess maintenance giving your gutters a better chance at doing their job and not degrading faster than expected. This saves homeowners time and money in the long run.

Gutter Covers Block Pests from Nesting Inside Your Gutter

Gutter Covers Block Pests from Nesting Inside Your Gutter

Not only do gutter guards stop large debris from entering the gutter, but it can be a deterrent for pests that want to make your gutter drainage into a home. Small rodents, birds, bees, and even racoons may try to get inside your gutter drainpipe. On the small scale this can cause gutter drainage to become blocked, and when it comes to larger animals can cause your gutter to become damaged. A quality gutter guard will reduce the success of these pests from nesting inside your gutters or using the drainpipe as a pathway up and down your home.

Prevent Ice Buildup with a Leaf Guard

Prevent Ice Buildup with A Leaf Guard

In the wintertime stagnant water can quickly turn to ice. Water may melt off a warm roof and then freeze again in the gutter if the gutter downpipe is blocked. Wet leaves and other debris can freeze along with the water greeting a blockage of solid ice, which may not melt for months. A gutter guard will stop this from happening by letting the water continue down the drain. Gutter cleaning doesn’t usually occur in winter, so having guards installed will ensure you’re not dealing with ice blockage in the middle of the coldest season.

Prevent Gutter Rust with a Gutter Guard

When water builds up in gutters it can remain stagnant for a long time. Most gutters are made of metal materials and unless they’re receiving a gutter cleaning extremely regularly you may have standing water. Guards will stop debris buildup and allow the water to flow freely. Without a gutter guard you’re more likely to run into the issue of stagnant water causing rust. Rust will continue to spread and can lower the lifespan of a gutter significantly.

Guards Keep Drains Free During Heavy Storms

Guards Keep Drains Free During Heavy Storms

After guard installation you won’t have to worry as much during heavy storms. Sometimes during heavy storms gutters can struggle to keep up with the rate of rainfall and water running off the roof. With a guard installed on your gutter you won’t have a leaf blockage slowing down the water drainage and building up.
