Your eavestroughs require regular maintenance due to the amount of dirt, debris and leaves they are exposed to on a daily basis. Today, there are gutter protectors specially designed to keep your eavestrough clean and functioning properly.
Gutter protectors are used to fit perfectly into the gutters to prevent leaves or other debris from blocking the gutter. If you are wondering how gutter guards could possibly help you, take a look at these benefits:
- Saves Time And Money
Gutter guards help you save time and money. Normally, you would have to clean the gutters annually yourself or hire a professional to do it for you. In both cases, it would cost you time and money.
- Prevent Insect Infestation
When all kinds of materials clog your gutters, water remains trapped with them as well. That creates the perfect environment for all kinds of insects such as cockroaches, spiders, and mosquitoes.
- Reduce The Risk Of Overflowing Water
Clogged gutters are the cause of overflowing water that will affect the rest of the house, including the roof. Overflowing water can cause staining on the outside of the house as well as damage to your foundation and basement.
- Prevent Winter Freezing Damage
Gutter protectors prevent freezing water during the winter time. Freezing can destroy your gutters beyond repair.
- Protect Your Roof From Damage
Gutter guards create a physical blockade against certain rodents, mice, possums, or birds that would want to make their way into your roof space. They can cause extensive damage to your roof down the road.
- Protect Against Premature Rusting
When gutters are blocked, water is simply sitting in them. Thus, they become prone to premature rusting, which will eventually reduce their life to half. Gutter protectors do not allow water or debris to sit inside your eaves for any period of time.
- Protect Against Wood Rotting
Congested gutters do not allow water to flow as planned. Water is redirected to spaces that it should not reach such as wood on your siding or roof edge. Water and wood are not the best combination and it all leads to rotting of all wood elements.
- Collect Rain Water
If you like to collect rainwater in specially designed tanks, water guards will help you refill your tankers more often with cleaner water. Gutter protectors act like a filter and provide you with cleaner water.
- Prevent Landscape Damage
When gutters can no longer redirect the water away from your home, everything around the house will be affected by water. Thus, your pavement or concrete will lose its color, get stained and possibly moss will begin to grow on them. Gutter protectors will allow you to maintain the color of your concrete and the quality of your patio. Your grass and plants will not be damaged either.
