Cleaning your gutters even once or twice a year can be difficult and exhausting. Dragging out a tall ladder just to sweep out some leaves and debris can seem like too much work for a such small gain. Without clean gutters, however, hazards such as flooding, fire, and pest infestations can occur. By purchasing high-quality gutter guards, you can keep your gutters clean all year round without bringing out the ladder.
Collecting and directing water away from a house is the main function of a gutter. When clogged with debris, water can’t flow and could end up flooding the home.
Our gutter guards in Atlanta and our other service areas fit over the top of the gutter and filter out clogging debris, like leaves, dirt, and pests. This allows water to reach the gutter and follow the trail away from the house unhindered.
An exceptionally dangerous hazard of clogged gutters is fire. Because gutters typically get clogged with leaves and small branches from trees, the debris makes perfect tinder.
While the debris is not likely to catch fire during a rainstorm, as they dry out, the smallest spark could be the start of something serious. With our high-quality gutter guards in Atlanta, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Dallas, Greenville, and Raleigh, debris will not be able to build up, vastly reducing the chance of a gutter fire.
While not necessarily a hazard, pests such as insects and small rodents can be frustrating and obnoxious. Having mounds of debris in your gutters attracts small creatures to them to build safe and cozy nests.
Not only do gutter guards keep debris from building up in your gutters, but they also keep rodents and most insects from entering the gutters. With no cozy nesting material and no way to get into the gutters, pests are deterred.
With damp leaves, sticks, and dirt constantly filling the metal of a gutter, corrosion and rust can easily set in. Even with regular cleanings, the lifespan of your gutters is greatly reduced.
With stainless steel gutter guards, debris will be blocked from touching the gutters and the stainless steel will stay bright and shiny for much longer than other metals.
Installing gutter guards in Atlanta and the surrounding areas could be a lifesaver. Not only will you lose the pain and headache of cleaning your gutters, but your home will be protected against a number of hazards. With our high-quality gutter guards, your gutters are guaranteed clog-free, which allows for water to flow away and protects against fires. Your gutters will also be free of pests and last longer, saving you time and money.
