Why should I install gutter guards?


Why should I install gutter guards?When gutters become clogged up, water is liable to spill over onto your rooftop, where it is then more likely to seep into your home. Also, the excessive weight caused by clogged gutters can cause your gutter system parts to become degraded. By installing gutter guards, you can help to keep your gutters clean and water flowing freely. At Houston Roofing & Gutters, our technicians are experts at installing gutter guards. Give us a call if you're interested in having guards installed on your gutter system.

Top Reasons to Install Gutter Guards

Installing gutter guards can save you both time and money over the long run. When gutters are left open and fully exposed to the elements, they are likely to accumulate a lot of debris. This debris then needs to be removed so it doesn't prevent water from being properly channeled away. Either you'll have to pay someone to do it, or you'll need to do it yourself. Gutter guards can save you from having to pay someone each year to remove leaves, twigs, and dirt. And if you're a DIY'er, gutter guards can save you from getting up on the ladder and putting yourself in a potentially dangerous situation.

Gutter guards can also prevent mosquitos and other pests from being attracted to your gutters. When debris causes stagnant water to pool up in your gutters or on your roof, the water source could lure mosquitoes, mice, bats, and spiders.

Clogged gutters can also lead to water spilling over onto your garden beds, where plants can become overwatered to the point that they drown. If you're an avid gardener, you know how plants can be just as harmed by too much water as they can be by too little water. With gutter guards, free-flowing water will be more easily directed to the proper location.
