If you’ve had it with climbing up the ladder to scoop leaves out of your gutter systems, you’re in luck. Gutter guards are designed to function as a cap for your gutter system that blocks debris such as leaves while sending water away from your roof. This makes sure that the gutters function properly, and homeowners don’t have to worry about the hassle of maintenance throughout the seasons.
Like many other exterior upgrades, gutter protection is an investment. While gutter caps seem like an extra cost, they ultimately provide a lot of benefits to homeowners. They can also save you money if you typically hire a professional cleaning service to remove debris from your gutters.
There are several variations of gutter protection available on the market. SmartCover from Universal Windows Direct is among the most efficient and effective protection options for blocking debris. This capping system conveniently fits over your gutters and blocks out leaves and sticks. It even helps prevent your clogged gutters from turning into an insect breeding ground.
The best part about SmartCover is that it uses science-backed technology to keep your gutters clear. This means that your gutters will remain fully functional, even with a capping system in place.
If you’re worried about aesthetics, you’ll be happy to hear that you don’t have to sacrifice your home’s curb appeal due to your gutter guards. There are 11 colors to choose from with the SmartCover gutter guard system, including creams and whites, greys, tans, black, and even red or green. You can select a color to either coordinate or contrast with the current color scheme of your home.
Did you know that clogged gutters can cause significant foundational damage? A clogged gutter system can lead to pooling water in your yard, erosion, and even cracks in your foundation. Gutter guards help keep your foundation in check while preventing other issues such as ice dams—which can cause further damage to your gutter system and roof.
