Of the many chores that need to be done during the fall season, cleaning out the gutters is perhaps one of the most important, but, at the same time, most dreaded tasks. This is understandable as there are many risks to getting up on a ladder and dredging out the muck and debris inside the troughs. In the fall, when nearby trees are shedding their greens, this job becomes even more important.
Thankfully, there is a way to keep your gutters safe from potential obstructions without ever needing to clean them manually again. Today, there are effective gutter protection systems that can keep your gutters and downspouts clog-free whatever season it may be. L
Time and Money
Clogged gutters can be dangerous. An inefficient roof drainage system can lead to frequent repairs or premature replacement. However, clearing away debris from your gutters can be as time-consuming as it is dangerous. Hiring a professional cleaner can save you this time, but at a cost. A gutter guard system saves you both time and money by keeping your gutters flowing freely with minimal or zero cleaning.
When gutters are unable to channel water sufficiently, you run the risk of ice dams forming on both your roof and your gutters. An effective gutter protection system can help prevent this problem by ensuring that melted snow in the winter is drained away completely away from your roof.
Protection Against Corrosion
Corroded or rusted gutters can often show up as ugly stains on your siding and fascia boards. In worst cases, corrosion can even lead to complete gutter failure. A gutter guard can help keep your gutters safe from this problem by ensuring that water does not pool inside the troughs.
