Gutter Guards and Screens - Are They Expensive?


A gutter guard is typically a small piece of equipment you install to cover the gutters in your yard. Gutter guards from Freeman Exteriors prevent water from entering and prevent large pieces of debris from entering the gutters. Gutter guards come in several styles to fit each house. Whatever style of gutter protectors you select, your house will benefit from certain advantages. Here are just some of them.

Gutter screens are a great option for protecting your gutter systems. If left un-screened, they can easily be clogged, which can lead to a leak. Twigs, leaves, pine cones, needles and other debris can easily enter into the openings of the screens. When these pieces of debris are allowed to stay in the holes of the screens, they can rot and attract mold and mildew which can ultimately cause damage to the interior of your home.

The lightweight aluminum construction also means that it can easily be installed on most types of surface. See here for additional information on gutter guards.

When it comes to gutter guards for the roof, twigs and leaves are some of the biggest problems homeowners encounter. Leaves and twigs often attach themselves to the lower edges of the gutters, becoming almost a permanent fixture there. The presence of these twigs and leaves on the roof make cleaning out your gutters very difficult which can eventually lead to damage to the shingles and the roof itself.

Gutters are designed to keep debris and leaves out by catching them in their gutter channel and funneling them away so you don't have to clean the gutters as often. Unfortunately, some types of debris such as pine needles, and needles from shrubbery can break off the bark of the shrubs and make their way into the channels of the gutter. With any type of debris, even dirt, there is the potential for them to stick their way into the channels and clog them. Gutter cleaners can help you to keep debris from becoming a problem in the future.
