Gutter Guards 101

Contents

Gutters can quickly become clogged with leaves, debris and pests – compelling reasons to have gutter guards. These handy additions to your gutters help keep them clean and functioning properly. Let’s explore everything you need to know about gutter guards, from the different types available to the benefits they offer in this post by top roofer Bone Dry Roofing.

Why Do You Need Gutter Guards?

Gutter guards offer a variety of benefits that can make your life easier while also protecting your home:

  • Reduced gutter cleaning: Gutter guards drastically cut down on the amount of maintenance needed. While we recommend gutter guards to cut down on gutter cleaning, Bone Dry Roofing’s teams can provide you with an annual or bi-annual gutter cleaning to get the gunk out of your gutters.

  • Prevention of clogs and overflow: By keeping debris out of your gutters, guards help prevent clogs that can lead to overflow and water damage to your home’s foundation, siding or landscaping.

  • Protection against pests: Gutter guards keep out unwanted guests like rodents, birds and insects.

  • Increased lifespan of gutters: By keeping your gutters clean and functioning properly, guards can prolong their lifespan and not have to replace them too quickly.

What Are the Types of Gutter Guards?

Various gutter guard options are available on the market, each designed to suit your specific needs and preferences. Bone Dry installs many different kinds of gutter guards or gutter protection. Contact us to learn more about what’s available in your area.

Some of the most popular types of gutter guards include:

Leaf Filters

A leaf filter is a set of fine mesh screens placed over your gutters to prevent leaves and debris from entering while allowing water to flow through. They come in various materials and are easy to install.

Gutter Covers

These are covers that fit over your existing gutters, channeling water into the gutter while keeping debris out. They are typically made of metal, vinyl or plastic and come in different styles.

Gutter Protection Systems

These well-designed solutions involve replacing your existing gutters with a new set that efficiently prevents clogs and overflow. They often feature built-in guards or screens for added protection.

How to Choose the Right Kind for Your Home

When selecting the right gutter guards for your home, consider the following factors:

  • Material: Choose a gutter guard material that is durable, weather-resistant and compatible with your existing gutters.

  • Installation method: All gutter guards require professional installation to ensure they work well and are covered under warranty.

  • Compatibility with existing gutters: Ensure your new gutter guards will work well and snugly fit your existing system.

  • Cost and warranty: Consider your budget and look for products with a warranty for peace of mind.

We had Bone Dry do masonry, roofing & gutter for us. Everyone we dealt with was professional, polite & on time. We were actually amazed how fast they did the roof & it looked great. Actually everything looked great

The experience of working with all of the folks at Bone Dry Roofing was top notch. Detailed photos and videos were provided for the initial inspection of the roof and then multiple photos were provided throughout the installation. I live in another state and was very well pleased working with them long distance. They made it very easy and stress free. The shingle roof - and all new decking - was replaced in less than 7 hours. Other teams of theirs will be back to replace the b pipe and the gutters next week.
