Gutter Guard Installation & Replacement in Connecticut
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.
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.
