Protect Your Gutters With Leaf Guards

If you’re tired of cleaning your gutters or paying someone else to do it, fret not because you’re not alone. Pretty much every homeowner out there is tired of cleaning their gutters. Unfortunately, you can’t simply ignore them or your house could become flooded. That’s why so many people are turning to leaf guards in Chicago instead.

These guards fit over your gutters and reduce the required amount of cleaning by preventing any debris from entering the gutters. If you aren’t yet convinced, then here’s a couple of reasons why you should consider installing leaf guards.

No More Clogged Gutters.

No homeowner wants to deal with clogged gutters. Cleaning them can be an extreme hassle, but that’s the least of your worries. Clogged gutters can lead to far more severe problems, especially if ignored for any period of time. The residual water can lead to flooding, rusting, erosion, or mold. It only takes forty-eight hours for mold to begin forming in moisture.

Leaf guards prevent stagnant waters from accumulating. Stagnant water is the preferred breeding ground for mosquitoes. Considering all of the potentially dangerous viruses that mosquitoes can carry it makes sense that you wouldn’t want them on your property.

To summarize, clogged gutters are a nuisance. They can lead to mosquitoes, mold, and other very serious problems. The final nail in the coffin is that someone has to get up there and actually clean the gutters out. That’s no fun. A high-quality guard like the Gutter Glove can prevent such problems.

Reduced Gutter maintenance

As mentioned earlier, clogged gutters must be cleaned. On average, gutters need to be cleaned at least twice every twelve months. This number can increase significantly depending on your environment. If you live in Washington or another area that gets a lot of rainfall, you might have to clean them more frequently. Likewise, if there are a lot of trees in your yard, then you can expect more frequent cleaning.

If you’ve cleaned your gutters before (and hopefully you have), then you know just how troublesome this can be. Cleaning gutters require either getting on the roof or standing at the top of the ladder that must be moved over and over again. Either option presents some pretty serious health risks.  Of course, you could always choose to hire a professional to clean the gutters instead, but that isn’t the ideal situation either.

Professional gutter cleaning can be pretty expensive depending on the size and shape of your roof. If you’re living in one of the areas that requires more than two cleanings a year, then those bills start to add up fairly quickly. In just a single year you’re already paying more than it would have cost to install a leaf guard on your gutters.

Protecting Gutters From The Environment.

Your gutters are normally exposed to an entire host of environmental problems. Rain is one of the most obvious problems that plague gutters though they are designed to handle rain water. Over time, the water can lead to rusting. This is especially true if wet debris finds a resting spot inside the gutters. It can permanently rust the gutters and then the gutters will fail to work properly.

Milwaukee gutter company are designed with a mesh atop a supporting frame. The mesh prevents any wet debris from falling into the gutter. Even if something did enter past the mesh it would fall into the frame instead of the actual gutter. Either way, the gutter is protected from rust. Whether or not the guard itself is prone to rust will depend on the material it is manufactured from.

Choosing The Best Leaf Guard.

There are a variety of different guards on the market that work with varying efficiency. The average guard can reduce your required gutter cleaning to once every three years, but it can get better. The Gutter Glove Pro, which is the best guard on the market today, can eliminate gutter cleaning altogether.

It’s unique and efficient design is capable of filtering through so much rain water every hour that absolutely nothing but water gets into the frame and gutter itself. You never have to worry about clogged gutters and you never have to worry about cleaning them again.

Comparing the cost of installing the Gutter Glove with the cost of multiple cleanings a year and the savings are quite obvious. Even if you were going to clean the gutters yourself, installing the guard is a better solution. It saves you time and eliminates the risks involved with gutter cleaning.

Gutter Glove.

The Gutter Glove is a two-part leaf guard system that works unlike any other in the market. It fits perfectly inside your gutter and can filter through 150 inches of rain in an hour. That can keep your gutters in the worst parts of Washington. The top is a stainless steel mesh and the frame is made from anodized aluminum.

The mesh is designed so that nothing can slip past it. Whether its leaves, straw, or even smaller debris. It will roll down over the mesh and into the yard. In the long run, it might mean more raking in the yard, but that’s definitely better than cleaning the gutters or dealing with clogged gutters.

Both, the aluminum and the steel mesh, are designed to resist rust and corrosion. The aluminum is anodized in an environmentally safe fashion. The steel is 316 stainless steel, the same type used in marine applications. Other guards on the market might use 302 stainless steel or chromium to help save a dollar during manufacturing, but not the Gutter Glove.

The aluminum is the same type used when building satellites and skyscrapers. It was even used in the construction of the Sears Tower located in Chicago.

It’s also the only guard on the market that promises you won’t ever need to clean your gutters again. Competitor leaf guards can reduce your gutter cleaning to once every few years, but that’s only because they are using an inefficient mesh system. The Gutter Glove is one-of-a-kind and always gets the job done.
