How Gutter Guards Save The Day

We’re often asked, “What do gutter guards do, and are they necessary?” Before you can understand the role they play, you must understand the importance of gutters for your Charlottesville home.

Gutter Guards Keep Debris From Clogging Your Gutters.

Gutters do more than keep you from getting rained on when you walk outside. When they drain properly, they keep rain from spilling over to damage your foundation, wash out flowerbeds, and cause erosion. Debris can clog up your gutters, so you have to clean them regularly to keep them functional. That means dangerous time on a ladder dealing with bugs, mold, and festering debris. Sometimes, it even means encountering snakes or breaking a leg!

This is where gutter guards can save the day. Gutter guards are devices that prevent debris such as leaves, twigs, pine needles, and other small particles from entering and clogging your gutters.

Gutter Guards

A Quality Guttering System Will Protect Your Home.

Like most things in life, you get what you pay for when it comes to gutter systems and components. Common gutter materials include aluminum, stainless or galvanized steel, copper, zinc or vinyl, each varying in quality and cost. The quality of the components dramatically affects their effectiveness and expected lifespan.

One of the most common causes of gutter system failures is weak brackets or nails used in the installation, causing downspouts and gutters to become detached from the system, rendering it ineffective.
