If you live in a wooded area and have grown tired of cleaning out your gutters twice a year to remove all the dead leaves, twigs, pine needles and debris it’s time to start thinking about a leafless gutter system. Very few people genuinely look forward to cleaning their gutters. Dirty and dangerous, this task is best left to a professional gutter cleaning company but if you want to cut down on the cost of this exterior home improvement project consider installing high quality gutter guards that will provide a durable barrier that will keep your gutter channels and downspouts free from leaves and debris.
Leafless gutter systems are designed to shield your gutter opening with a perforated gutter cover that allows rain water and melting snow to pass through and drain properly while keeping leaves, twigs and other debris on the cover where it can be easily blown off with a strong enough breeze. These covers stretch the entire length of the gutter and keep all sections safe from not only debris but also bothersome animals including birds and squirrels.
Birds tend to nest in open gutters and squirrels are notorious for poorly timing their jump from a tree to a roof and end up clawing at the gutter to keep from falling. Well designed gutter guards, including Leaf Relief and Gutter Warrior, are specially designed to handle these outdoor hazards and keep your gutters safe. Once you have gutter covers installed on your gutters you can say good-bye to annual cleanings since there will be nothing in the gutter to clean out.
