Everyone loves the shade of trees on their home in the summer. Unfortunately, once fall returns, so does the problems with leaves in your gutters. The happiness you felt from the cool breeze of the shade has now turned into a weekend project of removing slimy, wet leaves, debris and worms from your gutters. Have you considered having leaf guards installed? Leaf guards can keep the leaves, sticks, needles, acorns and most of the debris from your gutter. Leaf guards are installed over your gutter and are fastened to your gutter. When the leaves fall, they cannot get into your gutter. In addition, when it rains, the leaves actually wash over your gutter while the water goes into your gutter and down the drainpipe. If you have leaf guards in Indianapolis installed on your home, they can be customized to fit your home and will not damage your roof or gutters.
Besides the benefit of not having to climb up on a ladder in the middle of a rain storm to clean your gutters out, leaf guards can also help to protect your home. Many times clogged gutters will run over against the foundation of your home. When this happens, water then creates pressure against your foundation, which can lead to cracks in the walls. The over pouring gutters could also splash against your home giving you wet walls which can lead to mold problems.
Another benefit of having Leaf Guards In Indianapolis installed is snow and ice will also run off the edge like debris. In a gutter with no leaf guard, snow and ice buildup during the winter and can pull the gutter right off your home. Also ice dams in your gutter can block your gutter, which leads to water going under your shingles and destroying your roof.
Be sure to look for a company that will give you a free estimate and is a member of the Better Business Bureau. Make sure the company you’re looking into also offers warranties on their work and the product they are installing. Fall will be here soon and so will the leaves.
