If you want to prevent your gutters from clogging or want to reduce the need to clean them, we encourage you to install gutter guards.
One of the most important concerns for any building designer or property owner is protecting that property from water damage, and all the exterior structures on a building are designed to help keep water out. When it comes to preventing water damage, one of the most important features of any building is the gutters, which collect rainwater and divert it away from the building’s foundations before the moisture can soak in and cause problems. Of course, gutters can’t do this job effectively if they become clogged, which is why our team at Village Roofs offers gutter guards to help you prevent clogs from developing.
Gutter guards consist of a mesh or perforated metal screen that fits over your gutters. The screen allows water to pass through into the gutters, allowing them to continue doing their job of diverting rainwater, but keeping things like leaves and twigs out, so that they do not impede the flow of water in the gutters. This will prevent your gutters from clogging and will, in turn, prevent a variety of issues that clogs can cause, such as soffit and fascia rot, ice dams in the winter, erosion at your foundations, and even mosquito infestations. In addition, gutter guards will keep your gutters cleaner, so you won’t have to clean them as often.
