The Leafguard gutter system can help you stop wasting time with constant cleaning
When you have gutters, you can’t get away from having to clean them. That means hauling out the ladder at least a couple of times a year and spending an afternoon digging out debris to prevent clogging and overflow. Installing LeafGuard minimizes how much time you have to spend on this tedious task and can also save you money in the long run.
Clogging and Cleaning: An Unending Cycle
Traditional gutters are open to the elements, putting them at the mercy of the weather and any wildlife that decides the environment is nice enough to call home. Leaves, bits of trees, ice, snow and even parts of the roof can get stuck in uncovered gutters. As the collection builds up, water is less able to flow to the downspout and escapes the only way it can: down the side of your house.
Unless you’re 100% diligent about cleaning out your gutters, overflow becomes a serious problem. Water can damage the exterior of your home or leak into the basement, where it creates prime conditions for mold and mildew to grow. Too much debris makes gutters heavy and causes them to pull away from the house, leaving gaps between the gutter and the roof or causing the gutter system to fall off completely.
Benefits of LeafGuard
