We've talked a good bit about vinyl siding and windows. Y'all surely know by now that I'm a big fan of them. If you've somehow missed that point, just read through my blog! Today I want to touch on the "exciting" topic of gutter covers. I've blogged about the importance of keeping up your home and doing regular maintenance to it. Well y'all know I'm also a big fan of cutting out as much work as possible when it comes to the upkeep of something. So here we go... gutter covers!
Now, before I go any further. I want to be clear that just because you put gutter covers/guards on your gutters, that doesn't mean you NEVER have to clean your gutters and downspouts again! It simply means, it will greatly reduce the number of times you will have to clean them, possibly eliminating it. Just make sure you're at least checking on the gutters and gutter covers once or twice a year to make sure they're doing their job. The guards aren't fool proof, but it will drastically reduce the amounts of junk that can clog up your gutters. Now with all that said, if you get a high quality gutter cover like the ones my company installs, you are pretty much guaranteed you won't be getting any more junk trapped in your gutter.
Gutter covers are extremely helpful to everyone, not just the elderly who are not the steadiest on ladders. I know I hate getting up on ladders. If I can find something that's going to eliminate the dangerous job of climbing up on my roof, you better believe I'll be buying it.
If you don't know much about gutter covers and you're afraid they're going to be unsightly, you have nothing to worry about. Unless you're on your roof looking at your gutters, you won't even know they're there.
Now there are multiple types of gutter covers out there, so contact us before you jump the gun so we can help you make the best choice!
