Gutter Guard Installation & Replacement in Connecticut & Southwestern Rhode Island
Gutter cleaning is a dirty, time-consuming, and downright dangerous chore. Unfortunately, keeping your gutters clear is a necessary home maintenance task because clogged gutters force rainwater to flow over the sides, causing erosion and destruction of your sidewalks, driveway, and landscape. Overflowing water can also seep into the ground near the foundation, causing uneven settling, cracking, or even basement flooding.
Luckily, there’s a solution for protecting your home that doesn’t involve climbing a precarious ladder and scooping debris out of the gutters by hand. The answer is to install gutter guards. At Fiderio & Sons, we recommend the GutterShutter™ clog-free gutter system, a supreme solution for homeowners in Meriden, Connecticut.

What Are Gutter Guards?
Not all gutter guard systems are created equal. GutterShutter is a solid-covered gutter guard, meaning there are no screens or micromesh sections to get clogged with decaying leaves, twigs, pine needles, or gravel from asphalt shingles.
The system attaches to the fascia board and features a five-point mounting system within the gutters themselves. This makes GutterShutter strong and durable while preserving the integrity of your roof. It also makes the system compatible with any roof slope and roofing material.
GutterShutter is available in a standard residential five-inch size, as well as an oversized six-inch version for large, steep, mansard, or commercial roofs. The sturdy aluminum system comes in a variety of colors to match any trim or color scheme on your house, including copper for historical homes.
Because of this, the GutterShutter increases curb appeal, rather than detracting from it as many gutter guards do. You can even hang holiday lights along the gutters more easily than you can with other systems.
Benefits of Gutter Guard Installation
There’s no question that you should keep your gutters clear year-round. Gutter guards prevent a majority of leaves and debris from entering your gutters, cutting back on cleaning requirements while still allowing you to enjoy all the benefits of clean gutters:
- Prevent roof damage: Free-flowing gutters keep water from lingering on your roof. This stops the formation of mold growth on your shingles and prevents ice dams in the winter.
- Maintain the appearance and value of your property: By avoiding clogged gutters, you prevent water from flowing down the siding and leaving unsightly streaks. The gutters themselves also last longer when they’re not weighed down by debris and standing water.
- Retain a beautiful landscape: Erosion is common in homes with clogged gutters. A gutter guard system ensures rainwater flows out of the downspouts, preserving the soil grade and vegetation around your house.
- Avoid damaging the foundation: When water flows over the sides of your gutters, it pools around the foundation, which puts pressure on the walls and may eventually cause basement flooding.
- Eliminate the risk of insects or pests in the gutters: Standing water attracts mosquitoes, rats, and other disease-spreading pests. Deter insects and rodents by keeping the gutters clear with GutterShutter.
