Not only can cleaning the gutters be very unpleasant and inconvenient, but it can also be dangerous.
Imagine having to climb a ladder or get on the roof only to risk losing balance when you need to use both hands to effectively clean your gutters.
Still, you know that proper maintenance of the gutters is necessary for your overall home maintenance. Installation of a gutter guard is an effective solution to this ongoing issue.
A Gutter Guard Will Allow Water Flow
Gutter guards usually fit over your existing gutters to block leaves and other debris from settling in and compacting, which can block the gutters and keep them from working. However, these gutter guards still allow the water to flow through the gutters away from your home in the way intended. You can reduce the amount of maintenance you need to perform on your gutters while keeping them working effectively.
There are many options when it comes to gutter guards, however only few perform correctly. Like most house related items you buy, gutter guards are an investment.

A Gutter Guard Will Eliminate Standing Water
In addition to the costs of maintenance that you save, Leafscreen’s gutter guards can also help prevent lots of problems that can come with clogged gutters. When gutters are clogged, not only does water not flow through, but it also stands still. Water standing still can lead to all sorts of issues as we all know. Standing water can cause damage by seeping or leaking down into the house structure. It can lead to moss growth, mould and mildew as well as unattractive water marks that all lead to repairs and other maintenance.
You should also consider gutter guards to avoid gutter clogging. Clogged gutters become too heavy. When wet leaves and debris build up in the gutters, they can detach from the structure, which can cause just as much damage as water build up.
