What are gutter guards?
Gutter guards are a piece of metal that covers the top of the gutter to prevent unwanted items such as leaves and branches from entering the guttering system. These covers are installed on top of the guttering system so that they are not visible from your property. The popularity of gutter guards has been increasing of recent times as it is a proactive measure in protecting your guttering system from damages. Selecting the right type of gutter guard is integral to the overall performance and functionality of the gutter guards. If you select the wrong one for your property, it could mean that blockages occur on top of the gutter guard and prevent the flow of water into your guttering system as designed.
What are the benefits?
There are many benefits to having gutter guards installed throughout your property, or just on the sections of your property that are prone to excess debris. Some of these benefits include reduced cleaning maintenance due to the prevention of many items entering the guttering system, less likelihood of blockages which can help to save your property from flooding in heavy downpours, reduced likelihood of cracks in your guttering system due to the extra layer of protection it has as well as many more.
Installing a gutter guard is generally a simple process if it is done as the gutters are installed, and installation of gutter guards can also be done retrospectively. To fit a gutter guard we need to ensure first that there will still be sufficient allowance for flow of water into the gutters and that the guard is not going to cause too much of an obstacle for the free flow of the water. Once this has been determined to be suitable for the gutters are your property, we are able to fit the guard over the top of the current guttering system, ensuring that it is well fitted and unable to be seen from the exterior of the property.
Although gutter guards provide protection to your gutters and reduce their maintenance, this does not mean that there is no maintenance to be done. The gutter guards will need to be cleaned periodically as will your actual gutters need to be to ensure there is no damages and the water has a clear path that it can follow.
