What do you know about gutters and gutter guards? There are plenty of facts and myths floating around about gutter cleaning and gutter guards. You may have fallen for one of the myths before, but see the guide below and you won’t fall for any of them ever again.
Myth 1: If you don’t have trees, you don’t need gutter protection.
It’s easy to see why one would fall for this common misconception, but there are other sources of material that can clog your gutters besides trees. Twigs, dirt, nests, and other debris can make their way into your gutter if you don’t have gutter protection.
Myth 2: Installing under your roof or shingles will be sufficient.
There are two big problems that this can cause: it typically voids a roof’s warranty and it doesn’t account for the steep slope. Installing gutter protection can help you avoid water runoff and increase your gutter’s water collection capabilities.
Myth 3: You’ll need new gutters.
This is not always the case when it comes to installing gutter protection. The best gutter protection companies can install protection on pre-existing gutters.
