Why You Should Consider Installing Gutter Guards | IBEX Roof

When it comes to gutter guards, people either love them or hate them. However, the right gutter guards can be very beneficial in protecting your home and prolonging the life of your gutter system. Here are some reasons why IBEX Roof recommends gutter guard installation to homeowners.

Reduce the Need for Gutter Cleaning

First and foremost, installing gutter guards will greatly reduce the need to clean out your gutters. Gutter guards are not 100% maintenance-free, but the right gutter guards can save you a lot of time from cleaning your gutters, or a lot of money from hiring someone else to do it for you. This is especially beneficial for the elderly, handicapped, or busy homeowners who don’t want to worry about their gutters.

Extend the Longevity of Your Gutters

While gutters are designed to help water flow, they are susceptible to rusting and cracking when there is sitting moisture. Wet debris that is stuck in your gutters can dramatically decrease the lifespan of your gutters. It could also add unwanted weight to your gutter system that could cause other damage to your home.

Protect Your Home’s Foundation

The purpose of your gutter system is to help water properly flow away from your home. But if your gutter system is clogged with debris, then water is prone to build up in unwanted areas of your home. This could lead to mold, wood rot, or other costly damages.
