Cleaning gutters can be a messy and indeed dangerous job. While there is no immediate danger in excess leaves or debris, the danger of climbing ladders and stabilization while performing gutter cleaning and gutter repairs are very real. (That’s why calling in the professionals that are insured and bonded at Alamance Insulation and Gutters is the right call!)
This is where gutter guards can come in to spare constant cleaning and repairs of your rainwater management system. There are three basic types of gutter guards: screen, surface tension, and fine mesh. Which one is best for your roof? That is a difficult question to answer in a blog article! Besides the obvious question of costs associated with each gutter guard system (including specific brands), there are other factors to consider including the type of gutter currently in place.
But aside from those considerations, the primary concern perhaps is “what type of debris is interfering with the gutter’s intended purpose, ie to efficiently slough water from the roof system and away from the house and foundations of the house?” We can help the homeowner decide which types of gutter guard system is most appropriate for pine needles, hardwood leaves and twigs, seeds such acorns, etc….
So as we can see, choosing the right gutter guards as well as your gutter maintenance in general is very important but so is choosing an experienced gutter company to help you!
