Your gutters are responsible for properly directing water flow from your roof system to appropriate areas outside of your home. When they’re clogged with leaves, sticks, and other debris, water management can become difficult. As plant material collects in your gutters, it can block the gutter and cause water to pool in certain places, disrupting its flow. This stagnant water can then slip into cracks in your home, causing leaks, water damage, mold, and general malcontent.
Installing a gutter protector can alleviate some of these issues as well as reduce the amount of home maintenance you need to do throughout the year. Gutter protectors keep plant material out of the gutter, allowing water to swiftly divert from the top of your home to the downspout and then to some other safe and designated area outside your home. The debris can simply be swept off the top. By installing gutter protectors, you can easily prepare your home for fall and prevent debris from building up.
