Gutter cleaning is a tedious and potentially dangerous task that needs to be done routinely to allow gutters to effectively drain water away from the home, thereby protecting it. Neglecting to perform this task can lead to various issues, such as damage to the home’s exterior, foundation, and basement. This is not a task that most people look forward to, and it is easy to neglect, since it is out of sight and requires a ladder to perform.
However, most of the maintenance associated with gutters is not necessary with the implementation of leaf guards. Leaf guards limit the intrusion of leaves and other debris, which drastically reduces the frequency at which gutter cleaning needs to be done. Leaf guards provide a physical barrier that allows rain water runoff into the gutter while leaves and other debris are swept over the gutter. This can take a job that needs to be done annually or more often to something that is only required every 3-5 years.
