Gutter covers, hoods, guards, and screens keep your gutters clear of debris and capable of quality rain drainage. We highly recommend coupling your gutter system with one of these methods to ensure the continued effectiveness of your gutters.
Fall in Michigan is full of leaves and debris that falls onto roofs and into gutters. Clogged gutters can lead to many different issues with your roof, foundation, ground beneath and more. We’re happy to clean your gutters, too. Still, gutter covers are highly recommended!
Additionally, keeping your gutters clean helps guard your driveway, parking lots, sidewalks, and patios from damaging amounts of rainwater and runoff. When excessive amounts breach underneath the concrete, cracks, and shifting may occur, lowering your curb appeal and raising the repair cost.
How Do Gutter Covers & Screens Protect Your Home?
Avoid long term property damage
Gutter blockage prevents your gutters from doing their job of funneling rain water away from your roof, home, lawn, and driveway. While not responsible for any immediate damage, clogged gutters cause long term problems for your property.
Prevent roof damage
Blocked gutters means that the wet debris stays exactly where it lands. This leads to many roof afflictions, such as roof rot, mold, and mildew, which can ultimately affect the health of the home and those who inhabit it.
Avoid foundation damage
Gutters that don’t properly drain water due to blockage can also cause problems to the framework and foundation of the home or property. A common symptom of blocked gutters, especially when snow is melting, is a flooded basement. Repeated flooding or flooding that lasts for a long duration of time can cause cracks in the foundation of the building.
Protect lawn and prevent bugs
Proper drainage from the gutters away from the property will keep the lawn protected from pooling of excessive rain water by your gutters. Keeping the lawn free of extra rainwater and runoff prevents pools where mosquitoes can hatch. It also helps protect the life of plants who may die from overwatering, as well as protect your lawn from fertilizer washing away.
