Gutters play an important role in protecting your house from water damage by directing rain and melting snow away from the exterior walls and foundation.
Gutter guards are one of several gutter upgrades intended to help gutters function better with less work from you. Of course, you’ll have to choose between types of gutter guards such as the mesh or colander-style screens or the helmet or spike styles. But on the whole, gutter guards can make it much easier to take care of your roof, gutter, and drainage system.
Your home’s gutter system performs the important job of directing rainwater that falls on your roof away from your home to prevent water damage. When the gutters malfunction, rainwater can gradually damage the roof, the foundation, and the exterior walls of your home.
