Gutter Guards & Leaf Protection

Gutter Guards That Work

Your gutters will catch everything that comes down your roof, including leaves, roof grits, twigs, pollens, and more.  This debris eventually clogs the gutter and the downspouts and requires clean-out. By the time a gutter is clogged, it has stopped functioning correctly and is likely causing damage to your gutters, fascia, and roof as water fills and overflows the gutter. You can prevent the gutters from clogging by adding a gutter guard.

Gutter King only installs low-profile gutter guards that use micro-mesh filters to prevent debris from getting inside, and all of our products are 100% metal to handle the Texas climate. Additionally, they’re all virtually invisible from the ground level. Helmets, LeafGuard, and other surface-tension guards are ineffective against the small leaf debris we get in Texas.  You should avoid any products made with PVC (including LeafFilter), aluminum screens, gutter sponges, gutter helmets, or vinyl screens/caps, which all fail in the Texas heat.

All of our gutter guards can be added to new gutters or often retrofitted to your existing system. We will bring samples of our area’s most effective guards when we meet with you.

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 cannot 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.

​Minimal Maintenance

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 much quicker, easier, and safer to sweep off the gutter covers rather than reach in and pull out the mess.

Resistant to Mold, Corrosion, Rust

If allowed to enter the gutter system, debris could lead to water building up and wet leaves sitting inside the gutters until cleaned. Wet leaves and other debris 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 reside 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 discourage small animals from going 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.
