Gutter cleaning is one of the most important home maintenance tasks, yet many homeowners don’t look forward to taking on this seasonal endeavor. Doing work from a height is not just laborious, but also risky, especially for any inexperienced individual. One thing that could help make maintenance easier, however, is to equip the gutter system with mesh covers.
Gutters are supposed to direct rainwater runoff toward downspouts, but the downside to this is that they’re more exposed to the elements. Over time, they accumulate dead leaves, twigs and other organic debris until blockages form. With a gutter protection system installed, organic matter will just fall to the ground, drastically limiting the need to get up the ladder and clean the gutters.
Installing gutter covers or guards comes at a cost, but they pay for themselves for a long time by helping you save time and effort you’d otherwise have spent on cleaning your gutters. Apart from adding value for your home, investing in a gutter protection system keeps you from shelling out money on repairing water damage, which is a direct result of inefficient gutters.
Minimal Damage to Your Home
The gutter protection system helps alleviate the effects of water damage to your home. With no clogs to deal with, rainwater can easily flow toward downspouts and away from your home. As such, your roof, siding, landscaping and foundations are safe from moisture. Also, rodents and other critters are discouraged from turning your roof and gutters as their shelter and breeding ground.
