With a LeafGuard gutter on your home, you can eliminate gutter cleaning forever, because LeafGuard gutters shed leaves and debris, and do not allow them to collect in the gutter bottom. This means that LeafGuard gutters are maintenance free.
Ordinary open gutters, and even gutters with screens, covers, filters or brushes, need frequent maintenance to remove leaves, debris, twigs, acorns and pine needles that fall from nearby trees and collect in them during rainstorms. This debris can attract pests and insects, and encourage the growth of mold and bacteria, if left in the gutter bottom.
As debris lays in your open gutter, and more debris collects on top of it, clogs can form which impede the flow of water to your downspouts. Ultimately clogs cause water to leak behind your gutter, damaging your fascia and soffit, or overflow the top edge of your gutter, causing water to pool on the ground below. These pools will eventually damage your shrubbery and leak into your foundation, causing cracks in the cement and basement flooding.
So open style gutters, and even gutters with screens, brushes, covers, and filters, need regular maintenance to remove debris. To the homeowner, this means engaging in the dirty, tedious and dangerous task of climbing up and down ladders, at least twice a year in the spring and fall, to remove clogs and debris.

Replacing Your Gutters
Many homeowners ask how they can tell when they need new gutters. The answer is that damage to your open gutters such as broken sections, sagging areas where the spikes are pulling away from the fascia, major leaks causing water to pool in your basement, or severe rust, are good indicators that it's time to replace your gutters.
If you are a contractor or an exceptionally handy do-it-yourselfer, you may be able to replace or install gutters yourself. However, the installation of seamless gutters requires professionals who form seamless gutters on site, to the exact lengths needed for your home.
