One of the big chores of home ownership is cleaning out the gutters on your home. When fall hits, this is an especially rough chore. Leaves fall from your trees and clog up your gutters. Window World Twin Cities shares the benefits of Leafproof gutters.
What are Leafproof Gutters?
Basically, Leafproof gutters cover your gutters to prevent leaves and other debris from getting into your gutters. This gutter cover has an S-Bend Technology to let the surface of the gutter cover follow the roof and control the flow of water. This bend type allows the water to flow into the front of the gutter as well as reduces the speed of the water, making sure the water does not go under the shingles and damage your roof.
Benefits of Leafproof Gutters
The whole point of installing gutters on your home is to control water and drainage to protect your home’s foundation. When your gutters fill with leaves and debris, the gutters do not function properly. By using Leafproof gutter guards, you have the peace of mind of protecting your home without the timely maintenance of cleaning leaves and debris out of gutters. Here are some of the other benefits of Leafproof gutter guards:
Time Saver. Leafproof gutter guards prevent leaves and debris from clogging your gutters. Without gutter guards, you have the time-eating chore of cleaning out your gutters to keep them clear and functioning properly.
Safety. Climbing on your roof to clear your gutters is not the safest project to do yourself around your home. The pitch on your roof may be high and make the likelihood an accident or injury may happen. Not all homeowners are handy with a ladder. Clearing your gutters can be a dangerous job.
Pest Control. When leaves and debris accumulate in your gutters, they become prime breeding habitat for wildlife and insects. Insects and wildlife nesting in your gutters causes damage to the home. Keeping your gutters clear through using Leafproof gutter guards gives your home added protection from damage.
Avoiding Mold and Water Damage. By keeping your gutters clear, you force the water away from your home and protect your home and foundation from water damage. Clear gutters without debris and leaves do not have a chance to grow mold. Keep your home healthy and protected by using Leafproof gutter guards.
