Gutter Guards

If your gutters look more like a garden instead of a system designed to protect your home from water damage, then you already know one of the reasons why gutter guards can be important. Plants and small trees belong in the yard, not on your roof.

Unprotected gutters will fill with debris from surrounding trees and other debris carried on the wind that ends up on your roof. No matter where you live, nature’s elements will find a way into your gutters and lead to serious problems.

When a gutter clogs… it fills with water, overflows, and can become totally useless. Issues caused by debris collecting in your gutters are:

  • Water overflow leading to foundation damage and soil erosion
  • Build-up of dry debris is a fire hazard
  • Water leaking into your attic and walls
  • Moisture problems that encourage mold growth and termite/pest infestation
