What to look for when selecting a gutter guard?
Gutter guards are called by many different names, such as gutter cover, gutter screen, leaf filter, etc. No matter what name is used, the purpose is the same: to prevent leaves, twigs and other debris from accumulating in your gutters and stopping water flow.
Manufacturers have come up with quite a few different ways to keep gutters clean and clog-free. Some work better than others. To figure out which gutter guard design will work best for you, it helps to ask some key questions.
5 common questions about gutter guards and leaf filters
- Will the gutter guard filter out all kinds of materials? Generally, gutter guards can keep all but the smallest debris out of your gutter, though some screen or mesh-type gutter covers won't prevent small particles, like plant seeds & granules from your roof shingles, from accumulating in your gutters.
- Will roof shingles be damaged when the gutter guard is installed? Many gutter covers require lower courses of roof shingles to be pried up in order to install the gutter screen or cover. While inexperienced installers may damage your home during this process, our professional installers will ensure that this is done properly to avoid damage to the shingles.
- Can leaves accumulate on top of the gutter cover and block water drainage into the gutter? This can be a problem with many horizontal screen-type gutter covers, which is why we'll work with you to determine the best type of gutter guard for your home's location to give you ideal performance and limit maintenance and cleaning.
- Can the gutter cover come loose or be damaged easily? Like any other exterior part of your house, there is always the chance your gutters can be damaged by Mother Nature. However, we use only high-quality products that are durable and long-lasting under normal weather patterns.
- Will the leaf filter look good on my gutters? Gutter guards come in a wide variety of colors, meaning that we can match the guard to your existing gutter to give your home a congruent appearance.
