Investing in gutter protection systems can make regular gutter cleaning a thing of the past. Even with its far-reaching benefits, however, many homeowners still find gutter guards not worth the time, cost and effort to install.
If you find yourself undecided, read on as local residential roofing services provider Empire Contractors LLC shares the unique benefits of installing gutter guards.
Time and Money Saver
A gutter protection system prevents leaves and other debris from accumulating and causing clogs in your gutters. With this installed, you don’t have to perform gutter cleaning regularly or call a professional to do it for you. Although some debris may collect on the top of gutter guards, they are much easier to clean than taking the time to dig in with your hand and remove handfuls of organic material from the gutter trough. This decreases the number of times you’ll need your gutters cleaned.
Local roofers can attest to the fact that gutter guards can help stop certain animals from taking up residence in your gutters. With less stagnant water and clogs, mosquitoes, spiders, squirrels, mice and other insects and vermin find the gutters an unappealing place to breed. The gutter guards also act as a physical barrier to smaller critters that may try to get into your roof space.
Protection Against Moisture Damage
Gutter clogs cause rainwater to flow out to the sides, putting your home’s roof, siding and windows, at risk of moisture damage. If not addressed promptly, extensive structural damage may appear, from water stains, mold growth, and rot on wooden components. Even your home’s landscaping and foundations may become affected because of overflowing gutters. All of these costly problems can be prevented by investing in gutter guards.
