Most people dont know how important gutters are, until water begins to wreak havoc on fascia boards, framing, and creating wet basements.
Gutters are essential for keeping rain water from damaging the exterior of your home as well as keeping your basement nice and dry. Gutters simply divert rain water to the proper drainage areas on your property, which were designed to keep your basement from flooding. Damaged or blocked gutters can overflow and leak water to areas around your house that can easily be overwhelmed; before you know it, water will find its way inside your basement.
Gutter Covers also referred to as gutter guards reduce gutter maintenance and if you ever cleaned your gutters before, you could really appreciate the benefit of having gutter covers installed.
Gutter covers are made in a wide variety of methods, but the main feature of a gutter cover is to prevent leaves, branches, and storm debris from clogging your gutters. Clogged gutters can get very heavy with debris and water, the added weight can rip gutters off houses. If your home is an area with lots of trees, you may want to invest in gutter covers, the small initial investment pays for itself, because it will keep you from cleaning your gutters every year and it ensures that your gutters can divert water properly.
