If you live in an area with lots of leafy trees, you’ll want to consider getting leaf gutter guards to keep your gutters and downspouts relatively clear of leaves and debris during the fall months. Spring and fall are the most common times when people do gutter cleaning, and leaf gutter guards can help trim down the time you spend on that project while helping to protect your foundation and basement from water damage.
When shopping for your gutter protection be sure to get something that allows you to clearly see any blockage. Even the best covers will still allow some debris through and you’ll need to know where the blockage is so you can quickly eliminate it and prevent water damage below.
…Most gutters are 5″ or 6″ wide, and the commercially available guards are made to those standard sizes. You can buy them pre-cut or in rolls to fit your gutter needs. See what gutter guard prices are at homesace.com. Most of the time you’ll need to cut them to the exact length you need.
Gutter guards come in several colors, and can be painted to match your property to meet the requirements of your homeowner’s associations, city statutes for storefronts, and so on. Many people just keep them the original color or plain metal.
Another important thing to consider is rust. If you get a metal guard or metal mesh covering you’ll want to be sure it says the item is rustproof. You don’t want to have unsightly and damaging rust next to your roof or original gutters. Look for something that is stainless steel or painted.
