Why are Gutters Important?
Gutters are your first defense against the elements in the protection of your most valuable asset. They help to correctly divert water away from your home to protect against property damage and erosion
You wouldn’t put cheap tires on a Lamborghini, so why would you install second-rate gutters on your home?
Clog-free gutters area vital aspect of home maintenance. Without them, there is risk of harm to a home’s soffit, fascia and landscaping. Additionally, a leaking gutter system can cause serious damage to your home’s foundation and may eventually lead to water in your basement.
Why Do Traditional Gutters Fail?
Typically gutters fail for one of three reasons:
- They are clogged
- They are worn/cracked/broken
- They are installed improperly
Ordinary gutters are prone to clog which can lead to surface erosion and foundation cracking. LeafGuard Gutters are the only gutters that are guaranteed not to clog.
Traditional gutter systems are much less durable than LeafGuard Gutters. They are made from aluminum and other materials that are on average 20% thinner than LeafGuard.
Over the counter gutter topper devices are often times held in place with screws or nails hammered into the roof. This can not only void your roof’s warranty but can also lead to a leaky roof. All LeafGuard systems are installed by our team of certified installers. Each system is custom made for your house’s unique specifications.
How Can You Tell if Your Gutters are Failing?
Faulty gutters can have serious consequences to the rest of your home. Typically, by the time you see any visual evidence of gutter failure it may be too late.
Here are some telltale signs that your gutters have begun to fail:
- Water leaking through the seams
- Water pouring over the edge
- Gutters pulling away from the home
- Water infiltrating into your basement
The only surefire way to tell if your gutters are failing or need to be replaced is to have them inspected by a professional.
How Can You Prevent Gutter Clogs?
Every autumn, the Minnesota landscape is highlighted with the beautiful hues of fall foliage. As the leaves begin to fall, conventional gutters throughout the state begin to fill with leaves which lead to clogging.
At this point, a homeowner must perform the often dangerous task of climbing up a ladder to unclog the gutters because ignoring the issue will only lead to structural damage to the home.
With traditional gutter systems, there is simply no way to prevent clogs. After-market gutter covers or inserts can cause damage to your roof and existing gutter system and typically become clogged themselves.
The only way to truly prevent gutter clogs is to install a LeafGuard Gutter system. Through the process of liquid adhesion, LeafGuard Gutters effectively shed pine needles, leaves and small branches while allowing water to flow freely in.
