Rain Gutter Basics
Rain gutters are an important part of your roof system. They collect and divert rainwater away from your roof.
Poorly designed or installed gutters and downspouts can cause rainwater to pool around the base of the home or back up into the gutters. This can lead to serious damage to the roof, siding, fascia boards and foundation, and even lead to basement flooding and damage to the home’s interior.
Gutter & Downspout Maintenance
Most homeowners should have gutters and downspouts inspected and cleaned twice a year. This will help you spot leaks and drainage problems before they have a chance to worsen and cause further damage.
The best way to keep gutters and downspouts in good shape all year round is to have a gutter protection system installed. Gutter covers make your gutter system less vulnerable to clogs and ice dams by keeping leaves, debris and pests out of your gutters without obstructing the flow of water.
DANGERS OF CLOGGED GUTTERS:
Why Choose a Professional Gutter Cover System
Gutter covers (also known as gutter caps or guards) play a vital role in protecting your gutters from clogs and your home from water damage. They reduce or eliminate the need to muck out your gutters manually, keeping you off the ladder and out of the hospital.
Types of Gutter Covers
DIY Gutter Covers
Gutter covers can be found at any home improvement or hardware store. The simplest are made of mesh and are installed over rain gutters using tape or screws to filter out debris and allow water to pass through. Because debris tends to collect on screens, these gutter covers still require maintenance and are not a permanent solution.
Other gutter covers are made of perforated metal or vinyl panels. They allow most debris to slide off the top surface while water trickles down into the gutter. While better than screens, these are not maintenance-free either.
Purchasing and installing your own gutter covers may sound cheap, but the reality is that they do not last as long and are not as effective as professionally-installed gutter covers.
Professional Gutter Covers
The best gutter covers are installed by trained and factory-certified contractors. These systems have a huge edge over their DIY counterparts in that they are more durable, perform better and are covered by more robust warranties. Although the initial cost is higher, the long-term benefits and savings are well worth the investment.
