There are potential dangers to your home that are often overlooked but so easy to prevent. For example, maintaining your gutters can be very beneficial to the overall state of your house, but if not done periodically, clogged gutters can cause serious issues.
To effectively repel water and provide protection from natural debris and the elements, you need two things: a quality product and installation.
Gutter guards are considered critical to the upkeep of your home. Installed once, they not only last long, but are also a safe way to protect your roof and foundation. They also provide you with a maintenance-free solution.
Need more reasons? Here’s a few more reasons why you should install new gutters:
1. Keeping the mosquitoes away. Did you know standing water in clogged gutters can attract mosquitoes to your home? It’s only smart to keep your gutters clear for peak pest season!
2. Saving your siding & basement. Improperly drained water from your gutters will seep down and through your basement window or walls causing water in the foundation of your home. Read more about the importance of channeling water away from your home here.
3. Preventing Roof damage. Clogged gutters can cause water to collect on your roof and can cause the wood fascia, soffit or sheathing, or to weaken and/or rot over time. Moreover, when the weather gets colder, ice dams can be your nightmare and a potential threat to your roof!
Installing top-of-the-line gutter guards, like Rhino Gutter Guards, can structurally improve the strength of your gutters, making them substantially better and able to withstand the weight of any debris or standing water all year long.
Don’t wait until it’s too late! Having gutter guards installed now will give you a peace of mind and your home an extra shield to weather any season throughout the year.
