Why Gutter Guards Are A Perfect Investment In Your Home - Forbes Magazine

Gutters are a vital part of any exterior property and are essential for protecting your house from rain. However, gutters can also be ideal for pests to enter your home or even create nests on your roof. Deciding whether to install gutter guards is a matter of weighing an upfront expense against long-term benefits. For homeowners looking to protect their homes, save time, and cut down on regular gutter maintenance, the answer is pretty simple: Having professionally installed Leaf Relief Gutter Guards is worth it.

We are proud to offer top-notch Leaf Relief Gutter Guards at Hoffman's Exterminating. These products not only protect your gutters from excessive leaf accumulation, but they also help make sure no insects or wildlife has an easy avenue onto your roof and into your home.

Need More Reasons?

Gutter Guards Reduce the Need for Gutter Cleaning:

This is the primary reason people consider getting gutter guards: By filtering or blocking leaves, twigs, and other debris from getting into your gutter system, you won't need to worry about bi-annual cleanings.

Gutter Guards Protect the Home:

Clogged gutters create problems for homes—plain and simple. When water can't freely flow through gutter systems and down the downspouts, there can be severe damage to the home's integrity.

The Risks of No Gutter Guards:

  • Water spills onto the roof, which can cause leaks inside the home.

  • Water pooling against the fascia board, which runs between the gutter and the side of the home. This can cause the fascia to disintegrate and cause damage to the structure.

  • Water pooling at the home's base can damage the foundation and cause leaking.

Installing Gutter Guards Minimizes Mold and Mildew

Mold and mildew are not good. They also aren't good for your health. The most common materials to clog gutters are leaves, dirt, and other types of natural debris. These materials can also harbor mold spores, which can flourish inside clogged drains.

Clogged gutters don't only cause mold and mildew to develop outside the home, either. When a clog causes water to spill over onto the roof or side of the house, the housing materials are susceptible to rot—which is an easy way for mold and mildew to take up residence within the home.

Gutter Guards Help With Pest Control

Leaf Relief gutter Guards deter & block pests from setting up their homes in your gutter system. By creating a barrier between rodents, birds, and even snakes and the roomy gutter below, gutter guards are a vital first line of defense against a bigger pest problem. Without this barrier, pests living in the gutter can damage the home.

Clogged gutters can also offer a fertile breeding ground for mosquitoes and other insects. Because mosquitoes hatch in standing water, clogged gutters can be the ideal spot for hundreds or thousands of baby mosquitoes.

Backed by over 30 years of experience, our pros at Hoffman's Exterminating have the skills, experiences, and resources to get the job done right so your gutters stay in great shape, and your home remains pest-free.
