It’s easy to think that gutters are just for your house. But more every day, people are noticing that their gutters no longer work as they should. Leaves, pine cones, twigs, needles, insects, and everything else that fall from the sky make it difficult to keep your gutters clean. And in this era of ever-increasing temperatures, it gets even worse. So how do you deal with gutters that are clogged?
Well, in fact, there’s something you can do. Gutter covers, or gutter guards as Colorado Springs Gutters prefer to call them, are surprisingly successful at keeping your gutters clear and free of leaves, pinecones, twigs, needles, and everything else that fall from the sky. If you don’t head out on a rainy Sunday, watch football, or shop for bargains, then climb up on your ladder and go for hours on end trying to clean your gutters. But, if you use a leaf lock TM system, you’ll never have to do this. They’re designed to catch everything that falls from the sky, including all types of pinecones, leaves, twigs, needles, and everything else that might fall to your roof. If you don’t own a leaf lock TM system, you need to get one.
The purpose of a gutter cover or gutter protector system is to keep your gutters free of leaves, pinecones, twigs, and needles so that they can function correctly. Without these gutter cover or gutter protector systems, your gutters will clog very quickly. This, in turn, will cause water damage to your home, which is absolutely not what you want to see happen. These gutter protectors are a cheap way to save yourself the hassle of cleaning your gutters. Some people don’t think of these systems as protection systems, but they really are.
You can install a gutter guard system to cover your gutters with gutters that have seams or that are seamless. Seamless gutters are the best for the majority of situations. These gutters are made from a single piece of aluminum glued or stapled directly to the edge of the guttering. This type of gutter guard has no flashing and is very easy to install.
There are also different types of foam gutters. Foam gutters are great because they are straightforward to clean and remove. One thing to note, though, these foams can attract a lot of large debris and pinecones. Therefore, it’s a good idea to remove the foam gutter covers once a year when it gets too full of pine cones or other large debris. You can use a scraper on these types of covers to scrape off any large debris that you can’t get out with a scraper.
Aluminum gutters offer the benefit of not attracting debris, and they offer more protection than other types of gutters. However, the downside of aluminum gutters is that they can attract water damage as well. If your gutters start to get water damage, you need to call a professional immediately to have them cleaned and sanitize because this is a sign of more serious damage that could be underneath the surface.
