Gutter Guards–Your first line of defense. 

Well-maintained gutters are your home’s first line of defense against water damage from rain and storms. Neglect of your gutters can lead to roof damage, basement flooding, and overall degradation of your home value.

Choosing the right gutter guard system will save you time and money.

Protect your investment

Gutters are essential to maintaining your home. They protect your home’s walls, foundation, and roof by redirecting the flow of rainwater and snow runoff. If this system becomes blocked or clogged, your home could suffer serious damage.

The danger is clear. If you don’t divert drainage away from the house efficiently, you risk potential structural damage to your home. Naturally, most folks clean their gutters in late fall when leaves and debris are most substantial. It is also best to clean them in springtime when the rains can become torrential. During the summer months, stagnant water in clogged gutters creates a breeding ground for mosquitos and rodents. Dry debris can create a fire hazard. But don’t forget, winter! Poor drainage or ice damming can cause stress to your gutter system and endanger your roof. When frozen water trapped in a clog or obstructed by debris and mud freezes, it can destroy the entire gutter system. Making sure your gutters are clean of all debris and free of voids all year long ensures the health of your home and roof especially.

Most homeowners find that they have to clean their gutters several times a year. How can you save money and cut down on time cleaning and maintaining them?

Gutter Guards By Leaf Solution

Gutter guards offer a simple, cost-effective solution that accomplishes both. Additional investment in your roof should be worth it. The system should protect your home, make the process of cleaning more manageable, and give you more time to spend doing the things you want to do.

The Economics of Gutter Guards

A big part of homeownership is the upkeep of your roof and gutters. If you live in a four-season climate, the warmer months bring more than barbecues and time out of doors. Snow runoff and rain test your gutter system.

It’s simple. The more weather you have, the more debris gets in your gutters. You could leave your gutters as they are–but now instead of spending your weekend enjoying the game or kicking off your shoes–you get stuck on a ladder digging through the muck. Besides being one of the more dangerous home maintenance tasks, it’s not fun sifting through gutter muck.

The Bottom Line on Gutter Guards

Unless you have been living under a rock, you likely remember Tom Hank’s classic film from the 80s (Money Pit.) Few people realize that as funny as Money Pit is — it’s also a cautionary tale. Given a few seasons of neglecting regular maintenance, or simply because your home is older-costs can creep from small to large very quickly. When people think about the most apparent home improvements, most of think “roof,” for the evident reason that our roof is literally the thing that protects from the elements.

Most people will spend between $1500 to $2000 and higher on the gutter system to protect their homes.
