3 Benefits of Adding Guards to Your Gutters

Gutter companies and professionals have all kinds of tricks that help them clean, maintain, and repair your gutters. At Pro Exteriors, we want to share as many of those tricks as we can with you, our customers. We believe that everyone should have access to the best home maintenance tools and methods. One of those tools that we have is gutter guards.  

Installing gutter guards can provide several benefits to your home and gutters. Here are three of the most significant.


Stop Clogs and Improve Water Flow

The whole point of having gutters is to direct rainwater away from your house and to drain safely away from your foundation. If your gutter system is clogged with leaves, dirt, and other debris, it disrupts the flow of the water. That results in water overflowing and causing drainage problems. Gutter guards prevent debris from getting in your gutters in the first place. Some smaller things, like pine needles, will still make it through, but not enough to form a major clog.  

Eliminate Nests and Infestations

Debris isn’t the only thing that can settle in your gutter system. Critters like mice, squirrels, and even insects can make nests in your gutters. You don’t want to share your home with unwanted guests, especially when they are going to damage your gutter system! By installing gutter guards, you can keep those critters out of your gutter system and prevent them from nesting there.  

Save Time and Prevent Damage

Cleaning your gutters is a time-consuming chore, and it’s even worse if you discover any damage. Gutter guards keep your gutter system clean and clear for longers and reduce the risk of damage. You’ll save time because you won’t have to clean your gutters as often. And even better, you’ll save money by preventing damage to your gutter system.   gutters near me
