If you’re a homeowner, you understand the annoying task of cleaning out your gutters. Well, there is a way to skip this task. Installing a gutter cover or gutter guard on your gutters can save you the time and the stress of clearing out the leaves, mud, and other debris that will build up in your gutters. You won’t have to worry about getting up on a ladder and risk the danger of falling off anymore!

Gutter Covers Prevent a Build Up 

Avoiding debris build up in your gutters is the best thing you can do. With a gutter cover, you’ll be able to prevent leaves, mud build up, sticks, insects, and rodents from making a home in the gutters. 

  • Avoiding Infestations – insects and rodents have the tendency to make their home in your gutters. Sometimes they can make their way into your attic. By installing a gutter cover, you’ll prevent this, and make sure that proper water flow is occurring. 
  • Prevent Freezing and Water Damage – in the winter, your gutters are susceptible to water freezing if there is a clog or build up from debris. Having good water flow with a gutter cover will prevent freezing from happening. Freezing can also cause your gutters to sag and break. 
  • Prevent Corrosion – when leaves start to gather in your gutters, rust can occur. Also, algae and mold can start to form, which can cause your structure to deteriorate. 
  • Overflowing Water – if you have leaves clogging your gutters, water won’t be able to flow through. During heavy rainfall and other severe storms, water can cause damages to your foundation, and even allow water to enter into your home.
