Here in North Carolina, you may be familiar with pine needles and debris from storms scattered around your yard and along your roof. When those pine needles and debris get in your gutters, they create clogs, and your gutters cannot be as effective at redirecting the rainwater from your home and could even cause potential water damage. That’s why leaf guards or gutter guards are such a necessary added protection for your home. Here’s what a leaf guard can do for you and your home.
- No more clogged gutters: As the name suggests, leaf guards can guard your gutters against the normal clogging culprits like pine needles, leaves, storm debris, rodents, and even insects. These guards are typically made with a fine stainless-steel mesh that can easily block out the common culprits of causing clogs for you.
- No more risking your wellbeing: When you have a clogged gutter, you often have to climb high up your ladder to remedy the clog. With a leaf guard, you don’t have to risk your wellbeing at the top of the ladder just to unclog the gutter each month.
- Protect your roof, too: Because it prevents clogs, a leaf guard will also effectively protect your roof by redirecting the rainwater from building up under the shingles. Leaf guards will also prevent you from voiding any roof warranties you may have.
As you can see, leaf guards can do a lot for you and your home in terms of protection. They’re also barely noticeable while you’re looking up from the ground. If you’d like to learn more about how a leaf guard can help you, just give us a call at Batson’s Gutter Systems.
