Are Gutter Protection Systems Worth Installing?

Thinking of replacing your home’s gutters?  It is both wise and highly encouraged to have a gutter protection system installed alongside your new or existing gutters.  The long term benefits of having a gutter protection system in place definitely outweigh the initial cost.  

Advantages of Gutter Protection Products

The most innovative gutter guards should be installed for a number of reasons including the following:

  • Prevent clogged gutters that can lead to flooding, mold, and mildew by stopping leaves and other debris from entering the gutters. Now, you won’t have to spend time cleaning your gutters multiple times a year or spend money on a professional to clean them for you.
  • Damage caused by ladders or water infiltration is no longer an issue you will have to deal with.
  • Gutter cleaning becomes much easier and is required less often when gutter guards are installed.
  • Premature rusting of troughs due to accumulated debris will no longer be a problem.  Your gutters will now last at least twice as long because of this.
  • Water freezing inside gutter can easily be prevented by simply having gutter guards.
  • Flammable materials caught in gutters in areas that are prone to bushfires.  Having a gutter guard in place will prevent traveling embers from entering your gutters and igniting.
  • Improved water flow throughout the gutter system.  This is especially helpful for anyone with a rainwater tank for two reasons.  One is that the water will not only be cleaner, but the tank will also refill more quickly when it rains.
  • Gutter guards reduce the amount of stagnant water that can oftentimes become a breeding ground for a variety of insects.  
  • Lastly, gutter guards can help stop overflowing during heavy rainstorms, which can cause staining to the exterior of your home.
