Rain gutters are part of your home’s defense against basement leaks, foundation staining, mold growth and other problems caused by water damage. Therefore, it’s important that they are always working properly! If your gutters constantly get clogged with leaves and other debris, it may be time to install gutter guards, which we think are a great solution for any gutter and downspout system.

You might be asking yourself “Is installing leaf screens for gutters worth it?” Rain gutters are effective at directing rainwater away from your home, but unfortunately, it’s easy for them to get clogged with leaves, pine needles, animal nests and other debris—even old tennis balls or dog toys! Gutters are particularly prone to clogging in the fall and spring. But gutter guards and leaf screens (also called gutter covers or gutter screens), which can help prevent clogging, are beneficial all year long. Gutter guards are systems engineered to help prevent clogs by keeping out debris without blocking water flow.
When debris gets caught in your gutters, it can lead to all kinds of problems, which could include:
These problems can be time-consuming and costly to fix, but gutter covers can help keep your gutters clean and free of debris!
There are a variety of gutter screens you could use to protect your rain gutters and prevent your roof or home from experiencing water damage. Some of the more popular types of leaf protection systems include:
Reverse Curve Guards – This gutter guards sits atop the opening of your rain gutter and forms a small opening that allows water to pass, but prevents larger pieces of debris from entering. They can be made from different materials like vinyl or metal.
Sponge Guards – This type of guard is exactly what it sounds like. A large sponge conforms to the shape of your gutter, preventing anything that isn’t liquid to pass through your gutters.
Micro Mesh Gutter Guards – Micro mesh guards are a bit more of an involved installation process than their counterparts, but their mesh filters are great at preventing debris from flowing through your gutters. You can also choose the density of mesh you wish to install depending on the debris your rain gutters have to endure.
