Leaf Guard Gutters

If you find that you’re in the market for a rain gutter system for your home, it’s important to have all the information you can find at your disposal. One thing that you may not be aware of is something called leaf guard gutters. A proper leaf guard is essential to the proper function of your home’s gutter system. A leaf guard allows leaves, as well as pine needles, debris and other forms of detritus to flow over the top of your gutters, thereby keeping your gutters uncluttered and unclogged for the essential channeling of water, which is their primary function.

Without leaf guard gutters, what you will likely end up with is a system of gutters that will become clogged with leaves and debris. This debris will not only lead to improper gutter function but can weigh down the gutters attached to your home. If you find yourself with a traditional gutter system that is mounted to your home with nails, screws or other fasteners, that weight will eventually cause the gutters to pull away from your home, causing damage to your home’s exterior at the mounting points.
