4 Reasons to Get Gutter Guards

4 Reasons to Get Gutter Guards

As a homeowner, finding ways to improve the functionality of your roofing system should be a priority. If you’re debating the value of hiring a roofing contractor to install mesh, wire, vinyl, or aluminum gutter covers, here’s a list of benefits that LeafX gutter guards deliver.

Why Install Gutter Guards?

1. Gutter Covers Prevent Flooding

When gutters become clogged with leaves, twigs, and debris, water is unable to flow through your gutters and away from your home. By installing gutter covers, you’ll reduce the risk of clogs and, in turn, the odds of basement flooding and water damage. 

2. Simplify Maintenance

Gutter Covers

Cleaning gutters is an arduous task and a potentially dangerous one. If you have gutter covers, you won’t have to clean your gutters as frequently as before. You’ll save time and stay safe. If you have to climb up a ladder to reach your second and third-story gutters, gutter cover protection reduces the risks of falls.

3. Reduce Rust

When gutters are clogged, standing water can lead to erosion and rust. Extend the life of your gutters with gutter covers, which will help keep your gutters clean and rust-free.

4. Prevent Mold & Rot 

By eliminating the accumulation of debris in your gutters, you’ll prevent mold and mildew from developing and multiplying. Prevent mold and rot by keeping your gutters protected from leaves, twigs, nesting critters, and stagnant water.

Protect your gutters from leaves, pine needles, snow & ice, and other unwanted and clogging debris by installing LeafX® Gutter Protection. LeafX® is a premium gutter protection system that is constructed of 100% aluminum, requires no drilling into the roof or fascia of your home and is only offered by authorized installation experts like Engstrom’s Siding and Window Company.
