Installing gutter guards from the industry professionals at Austin Gutter King will protect and prolong the life of your gutter system. The heavy-duty micro-mesh screen prevents debris and critters from entering the gutters and blocking the free flow of water throughout the system.
Benefits of Gutter Covers
Among the many benefits and features of installing high-quality gutter guards include:
Improve Water Flow Through Gutter System
The water that makes its way through your gutter system helps to keep the downspouts working to prevent clogging. With premium-quality gutter covers, debris and other blockage materials will be unable to pass through gutter connection points.
With gutter guards in place, rainwater collection tanks will fill quickly with water that has not gone through fallen debris and grime to get there.
When gutter guards are affixed to your gutters, debris will be prevented from gathering and blocking a clear passage for water. This means you do not have to climb up a ladder and empty out the gutter as often or pay a professional to clean your gutters. While leaves, twigs, and other debris will land on top of gutter covers, it is a much quicker, easier, and safer task to sweep off the gutter covers rather than reaching in and pulling out the mess.
Resistant to Mold, Corrosion, Rust
If allowed to enter the gutter system, debris could lead to water building up and for wet leaves to sit inside the gutters until cleaned. Wet leaves and other debris that's left inside will eventually begin to grow mold, which could expand to your roof and inside your home. In addition, gutter covers will also prevent the formation of rust and corrosion over time.
Prevents Water Damage, Freezing
Ice that builds up in your gutters during the winter can create blockages that block the flow of partially melted ice from moving through your gutters. Installing gutter covers will not altogether remove the risk, but they will reduce the chance of larger build-ups. In the warmer months, gutter guards work to minimize water overflow that can cause structural damage to your roof and walls, and increase the risk of potentially harmful mold growth.
Prevents Insect Infestations
Installing gutter guards will help ward off the infestation of insects, rodents, and other animals that might otherwise be inclined to take up residence in your gutters. They prevent birds and other animals from using fallen twigs, leaves, and sticks to create nests inside the gutters. Gutter covers can also discourage small animals from making their way through the roof and into your attic.
Fire Prevention Properties
Having gutter covers on your gutters can also act as an effective fire protection method for your home. They prevent leaves and other brush left in the gutters from turning into kindling when hit with a spark from a backyard cookout.
