Why Install Gutter Guards?

You might be wondering if installing leaf screens for gutters is worth it. 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 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. Gutter guards are 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, including:

  • Leaks
  • Gutter damage (including gutters that become loose or detached)
  • Roof damage
  • Damage to exterior walls, insulation and drywall
  • Basement flooding
  • Foundation staining
  • Mold and mildew growth
  • Flower bed erosion and other landscaping problems
  • Mosquito infestation (standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes)

These problems can be time-consuming and costly to fix, but gutter covers can help keep your gutters clean and free of debris.

Types of Leaf Screens We Can Install

There are a variety of gutter screens you could use to protect your rain gutters and protect your roof and home from water damage. Some of the more popular types include:

  • Reverse curve guards: This type 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 is exactly what it sounds like. A large sponge conforms to the shape of your gutter, preventing anything that isn’t liquid from passing through.

  • Micro mesh gutter guards: Micro mesh guards are a bit more of an involved installation process, but their mesh filters are great at keeping debris from flowing through your gutters. You can also choose the density of mesh depending on the debris your rain gutters have to endure.

Stop searching for leaf removal services. A gutter protection system will help you save money and give your gutters a longer service life.

Gutter Guard Installation FAQs

Why is there standing water in my gutters?

Standing water in your gutters usually indicates a leak (either in the gutters or a downspout), which can be caused by small sticks or twigs, tree branches, leaves, etc.

Do I need to repair or replace my gutters?

Talking to a professional insulation company is the best way to determine if you need gutter repair or replacement, but there are some things you can look out for on your own, including:

  • Frequent clogs
  • Mildew or rust buildup
  • Flaking or peeling

Sectional gutters are pieced together in 10- to 20-foot sections with multiple seams — the gutter sections are joined together with connectors.

Seamless gutters are continuous, meaning they only have joints at the corners and where the gutters meet downspouts, and they’re most often made from aluminum.
