“Do I even need gutter guards?” You may find yourself asking this question every once in a while. The short answer is yes, you do. Here’s why.
Saves Time and Money
Gutter guards can shave a big chunk off your maintenance costs, both time and money. Instead of stepping up a ladder to see if your gutters are choked with dry leaves and twigs all the time, these components can block these debris from even getting into your gutters in the first place.
Plus, going up on your roof or roofline is an inherently dangerous proposition. Due to that fact, you may have to call a roof repair professional just to clean your gutters. This, of course, costs money – that you would have saved had you invested in a gutter guard in the first place.
Worse, organic material sitting in your gutters for too long may invite vermin and other pests into make your gutters their nest. This would further clog the gutters.
Protects Against Water Damage
If your gutters are clogged with an assortment of refuse, they won’t be able to properly channel water. When it rains, for example, instead of being routed correctly to a downspout a safe distance away from your property, it will instead collect in the gutters with nowhere to go. Worse, it can even back up onto your attic by way of your fascia.
When water gets into your roof, a lot of bad things can happen. It can render your attic insulation useless, for one. It will also invite mold and mildew growth, and even promote rot and decay of your roof’s wooden components.
