When you’ve spent endless hours over the years cleaning and unclogging your gutters to keep them working properly, something that prevents clogs and minimizes cleaning sounds too good to be true. Fortunately, we’re here to tell you that gutter guards really do work well to prevent clogs and minimize the required cleaning and maintenance.

Do Gutter Guards Really Work?

Here is some useful information about gutter guards to help prove the value of the investment:

  • Durable mesh covering: The important thing to know about gutter guards is how they work. No matter the brand or material you go with, you’ll typically get a durable mesh covering that goes over your existing gutters to protect the gutters and prevent dirt, debris, bug nests, or otherwise from building up inside the gutter and causing a clog. That’s how gutter guards minimize the need to clean your gutters so regularly too.
  • Choose the right material: There are a lot of different gutter guards to choose from, but they aren’t all created equally. If you choose aluminum, you’ll want to be sure the gutter guards are covered in rust-proof paint to avoid any rust issues. There’s also plastic, but extreme temperatures can easily affect the durability of the material. Finally, there’s metal mesh, which is one of the more beneficial options.
  • Choose the right company: Another way to ensure your gutter guards will really work is by choosing the right company to do the installation.
