Autumn leaves fall from the trees signals that fall is finally here. When it’s time to tend to your gutters, autumn is one of the most important seasons to consider gutter protection or new gutter installation.
If you are starting on your fall home maintenance checklist, LeafGuard installation should be at the top of your list. Here’s why.
LeafGuard Defends Against Falling Leaves
The core function of gutter protection is to guard against leaves. This is especially true in the autumn when leaves drop from the trees at a rapid rate. This means that those leaves pile up in your gutter system, causing an array of expensive problems.
Prevents Costly Clogs
Leaves and debris can easily enter your rain gutters during the autumn season. In order to effectively keep that debris out of your gutters, you’ll need protection such as LeafGuard. Otherwise, clogged gutters won’t properly divert rainwater from your home.
Decreases Ice Buildup
When temperatures dip below freezing, it’s possible for stagnant water inside your gutters to turn into ice. This becomes incredibly heavy on your gutter system. In fact, it can even pull your gutters or seamless gutters right off your roof.
As long as you have gutter covers installed on your gutter system, there is generally no need to worry about ice. Rainwater will flow out of the gutters, making it unable to freeze inside the system.
Offers Extra Protection for Your Home
During rainy days in autumn, the last thing you want is pooling water around your foundation. This water can make its way inside your basement, resulting in cracks in the foundation and water inside your home. With new gutter installation or new gutter protection, rest assured that your foundation remains free from water damage.
Advantageous for All Seasons
When you get gutter protection installed in the fall, you get to reap the benefits all year long. While LeafGuard is particularly helpful in the fall, it will help you all throughout the year to prevent clogs and keep your foundation in check.
