Are Gutter Guards Worth It?

Are Gutter Guards Worth It? Making improvements to your home can quickly become a costly endeavor. So, it’s understandable that you may be hesitant about adding gutter guards to your gutter system. After all, is the investment really worth it?

To answer this question, consider the consequences of having clogged gutters. Gutters can easily become filled with debris like leaves, twigs, pine needles, and pine cones. These blockages will prevent your gutter system from effectively channeling water away from your home, which can lead to a host of costly problems like:

  • Sagging and broken gutters
  • Unsightly water marks on your home’s siding
  • Foundation damage from pooling water around your home
  • Rotting or damaged fascia
  • Damage to landscaping around your home
  • An increased chance of ice dams and leaks

Unfortunately, the only way to prevent clogs in an unprotected gutter system is to climb a ladder and remove the debris yourself on a routine basis—a task that is dangerous, time consuming, and a complete hassle.

That’s where gutter guards come in. A gutter guard is a piece of material that is attached on top of a gutter, allowing rainfall to run through it while keeping clog-causing debris out. This will help maximize the effectiveness and lifespan of your gutters, allowing you to focus your time, energy, and money on home improvement projects that you care more about.
