Gutter Guards (almost) Maintenance Free!
Keeping your gutters free and clear of obstructions is essential for the long-term health of your home. Gutters clogged with leaves and other debris can spill over, damaging your foundation and allowing water into your basement. Worse yet, overladen gutters can damage your roof and pull the fascia boards right off your home.
To safeguard your property, experts recommend cleaning out your gutters at least twice a year. If you live in a wooded area, that number shoots up to four times. Unless you’re a roofer (or mountain climber) by trade, climbing a ladder that many times a year can be dangerous. Besides, cleaning gutters just isn’t fun. Fortunately, there is a solution: custom gutter guards.
What Are Custom Gutter Guards?
Gutter guards are metal screens that shield your gutters from falling debris. They attach easily over your existing gutters, stretching from the edge of the roof’s shingling to the edge of the gutter’s lip, protecting it in its entirety.
George’s Seamless Gutters is proud to offer long-lasting aluminum gutter guards, and our stylish, high-quality copper guards. Rather than taking the cookie-cutter approach of self-install products, we custom fit our guards directly to your home.
An (Almost) Perfect Solution
Gutter guards completely eliminate leaves and other debris from building up in your gutter’s trough, vastly reducing the amount of yearly maintenance necessary. Unfortunately, they don’t eliminate it completely. There is still a small amount of maintenance.
Debris might not build up inside the gutters, but it does build up on top of the screens, creating a heavy, soggy canopy. The good news is, gutter guards are much easier to clean. For lower-hanging roofs, you can use a long-handled broom or special gutter guard cleaning tool. For higher roofs, you still might need to get on the ladder from time to time to make sure things look clear.
Cut Down Your Maintenance With Gutter Guards
Gutter guards might not be perfect, but they reduce the need for hands-on maintenance by a huge extent. If you’re looking to cut down your ladder time this year, George’s Seamless Gutters can install a custom-built gutter guard system that safeguards your home while increasing its curb appeal.
