Last Chance To Add Gutter Guards Before Fall
Add Gutter Guards Before Fall comes. This is important to do because once the trees start shedding their leaves, it’s a lot tougher to get a completely clean gutter, also it’s twice as much work! If you unsure if gutter guards are what you need take a few things into consideration such as:
Amount of Trees Around Your Home
If you have trees surrounding your home, it’s highly likely that you have to clean your gutters out more than twice a year. Adding a gutter guard system can cut back on the amount you will have to clean out your gutters down to twice a year ( the recommended amount) and depending on your gutter guard it should be a quicker clean as well. Most gutter guards will keep the larger debris out of your gutters and prevent clogging from occurring ( there are instances where larger debris can find it’s way in).
Some gutter guards, such as MasterShield are designed to keep smaller debris out, by smaller debris we mean as small as “…constructed with a non-stick, 316 surgical grade stainless steel microfilter that will not allow the tips of pesky pine needles or other debris in. In fact, nothing but water can get through a MasterShield protected gutter!” (source). Other gutter guards such as Leafproof offers “…the flow (of water) will reverse direction as a result of surface tension, and the water will drain into the gutter. Most debris will not follow this reversal or is blown off the roof by the wind when dry.” (source) So no matter is you’re looking for a screen mesh or a solid gutter guard, we have you covered.
Type Of Tree
Depending on the type of trees that surround your home can effect the type of gutter guard you should think about installing on your home. It should never be about pricing until you have a couple of similar gutter guards to choose from. For trees such as pine trees and other small debris shedding types, a screen mesh will do the job. Our highly suggested gutter guards is our screen mesh. It’s very similar to Mastershield but it’s pricing is less. This is not because the product is less, it’s due to the warranty. So depending on the warranty you want this will help you decision. Where as our drop in gutter guard is good if you have trees with larger leaves.
