The Number One reason you need a LeafGuard gutter system, is because it is the best! If you are a homeowner who takes pride in your home, you want the peace of mind of knowing that you chose the best gutter protection system available.
All gutters carry water away from you home, but only LeafGuard does it with a patented, debris shedding design that is better than any other gutter on the market today. Better than gutter covers, screens, hoods, or helmets.
LeafGuard gutters keep leaves and other debris out of your gutters, so you never have to climb ladders to clean out clogs or worry about water damage caused by clogged gutters.
What's Wrong with Clogged Gutters?
LeafGuard's patented design allows rainwater to travel down and around its curved hood and into the gutter where it can flow freely to your downspouts.
Ordinary gutters capture rainwater and also collect leaves, twigs and other organic debris that can become clogged and create dams that impede the flow of water.
Clogs cause water to spill over your gutter and pool on the ground below. This can result in damage to your shrubs; lead to surface erosion; and seep into your foundation causing cracks and basement flooding.
Water can also spill behind the gutter causing damage to the wood of your fascia and soffit.
If you have add-on toppers, helmets and hoods, that are attached to your roof and hang over your gutters, they are usually held in place by screws and nails hammered into your roof. Putting holes in your roof can cause leaks and may void your roof warrantees.
Don't underestimate the danger of clogs attracting pests. Some critters are attracted to the acorns and seeds that can collect in your gutters. Insects, mold and bacteria can grow in standing water and wet clogs.
