Normally gutters require maintenance at least twice a year depending on the weather. Those old open top gutters clog, overflow and can result in spending hours cleaning and maintaining. After the LeafGuard system is installed, gutter maintenance is virtually eliminated. It’s the only patented one-piece gutter system that’s guaranteed to never clog.
Prevent Roofing Damage
When open-top gutters become clogged with leaves and other debris water backs up on your roof and facia board. If this problem persists it can cost thousands of dollars in roof repairs. But with the clog free system of LeafGuard you can gain peace of mind this winter knowing you won’t have to worry about clogged gutters.
Seamless Gutters are Less Likely to Leak
Anytime a gutter has a joint where two sections meet, there is the possibility of leakage problems. In the wintertime these joints can collect water and debris, causing the joints to come apart or even freeze. This can result in leaks and water damage from the roof down to the foundation of your home. However, the LeafGuard gutter system is a one-piece seamless system with no joints and, therefore, no leaks.
Ensure That They are Ready to Handle Melting Snow
If you live in an area that gets a lot of snow, your home’s gutters and downspouts will need to be able to channel all of it off the roof safely and effectively. As the snow falls and melts, it slowly runs down the roof into the gutter and is redirected away from the house. However, if your old gutters are constantly clogging or have a drainage problem, melting snow can overflow your gutters and result in water damage to your home. Another benefit of the LeafGuard system is that it engineered to handle up to thirty-two inches of rainfall an hour. Making it the perfect option to handle the melting snow and rain of winter.
