Gutter Guards: Give Your Gutters an Assist

January 23rd, 2014 | No Comments »

Gutters are an essential part of maintaining your house, and keeping them free of leaves and other debris is one of the ways you optimize gutters’ performance. True, cleaning and clearing your gutters can be a dirty job, but it is a simple one and you will not regret devoting this time to your home’s overall maintenance.

 

Using gutter guards helps insure that leaves, wood and other kinds of debris don’t clog up your gutters and they are easy to install. The different kinds of gutter guards available to you give you a good variety  to choose from and you will surely find one that works well for your home.

 

  • Reverse Curve gutter guards keep rainwater flowing down the gutter and help leaves fall to the ground.

 

  • Nylon gutter guards are mostly for snow and ice accumulation during the winter months and fit right inside the gutter without having to be attached to your home’s shingles.

 

  • Bottle brush gutter guards keep debris on top while still allowing water to flow down the gutter.

 

  • Mesh gutter guards are metal sheets with holes in them – the smaller the better – used for catching debris and still letting water run cleanly through the gutter.

 

  • Plastic foam gutter guards are installed inside the gutter and sift out roof debris while permitting the free fall of rainwater.

 

Ask a professional which type of gutter guard is the best fit for your home’s needs. The surrounding environment – trees, buildings and the like – will be a factor in deciding which gutter guard is right for you. Using gutter guards is a way of helping your gutters do their job keeping your house safe and in good condition.
