Installing gutter guards on the gutters hanging on the side of your home can save you a great deal of time in the fall. You won’t have to worry about picking a bunch of leaves, sticks, and other debris out of your gutters since your gutter’s guards will keep them out of those areas in the first place. There are many other ways in which you and your home can benefit from gutter guards, too. Check out some more benefits below.
Stops pests and rodents from setting up shop in your gutters
There are all sorts of pests and rodents that can work their way into your gutters when you don’t have gutter guards on them. From squirrels and mice to spiders and bees, it’s not uncommon for pests and rodents to make a home for themselves in your gutters. This won’t happen when you have gutter guards set up. They’ll stop just about every living creature from gaining access to your home’s gutters.
Prevents your gutters from helping ice dams to form
If your gutters get clogged up in the wintertime, it’ll often lead to water sitting in them and freezing once the temperature drops. This can cause ice dams to form, which can do damage to both your gutters and portions of your roof if you’re not careful. You can reduce the chances of having to deal with ice dams by installing gutter guards and making it a point to clean out your gutters.
Extends the life of your gutters
When moisture sits in your gutters for long periods of time, it can cause your gutters to rust and corrode much quicker than they would otherwise. Gutter guards will reduce the amount of moisture in your gutters and stop premature rusting and corrosion from taking place. This will allow you to get more life out of your gutters and save you money over time.
