Generally the best candidates are people who’s homes sit below a canopy of trees, this causes your homes gutters to be overwhelmed by leaves, sticks, pine needles, and other debris which can causes serious damaged to your home and its foundation when water is unable to drain properly due to clogged gutters. The more foliage that covers your home directly translates into more debris falling on your roof and collecting in your gutters. Many people that experience this collection of leaves and other debris in their gutters usually have to clean out their gutters multiple times a year. This can be costly, time consuming, and even dangerous if you have a muti-story home and have to climb a ladder to clean out your gutters. If you have experienced this it means your home is a perfect candidate for a gutter protection system.
Homes that are not covered by mature trees can sometimes live with out any gutter protection, but there are many exceptions to this rule. One of the gutter protection systems that Grand Building offers, the Gutter Shield similar to the Gutter Guard and Gutter Helmet adds beauty to your home by matching any roof colour creating a nice uniform edge to your homes overall aesthetic look. What this proves is that even though a gutter protection system may not be 100% needed to protect against falling leaves and debris it can still add value to your home.
In my next posting I will continue to explain how a gutter protection system will help solve common problem associated with having open and exposed gutters aside from the most obvious need when a home sits below a canopy of trees.
