Surprising Advantages of Installing Gutter Guards
When autumn arrives each year, you look forward to the changing colors of the leaves before they fall from the trees, but what you don’t look forward to is cleaning those leaves out of your gutters. At Gutter Filters of Utah, we can help you eliminate the need to pull the ladder out of the garage, set it up against the house, and spend hours pulling clumps of leaves from your gutters.
No More Clogged Gutters
Clogged gutters can pose a series of problems, including improper water drainage after it rains or snows, along with moss and mold buildup within the gutters themselves. Leaves can make their way into your downspouts, which means the water has nowhere to go, and this can create leaky or overflowing gutters each time it rains. If this water finds its way into your house, it can create all types of damage.
Your Gutters Last Longer
Every time you clean your gutters, you run the risk of damaging them or moving them in ways they’re not designed to move. Depending on the approach and the tools you use to clean the gutters, you may end up bending part of the metal or plastic, or completely damaging a section of your gutter system. With gutter guards, you eliminate the need to clean them, which means they should last much longer!
Less Risk for You
If you climb on your roof or set a ladder against the house to clean your gutters each fall, you’re putting yourself at risk for injury. Even with the slowest, safest approach, you can never anticipate what can happen when you’re on the ladder or the roof. You can remove these inherent risks by adding leaf guards and ensuring that only water finds its way into your gutters!
No More Hiring Someone Else
Perhaps you’ve hired someone the past few years, such as a friend or neighbor, to clean out your gutters. They’re happy to do it and you’re happy to pay them, but is this an expense you need every autumn? By investing in gutter guards, you can save yourself time and money each year. The guards will more than pay for themselves over the course of their lifespan, which is extensive!
