Benefits of Rain Gutter Shields
- Clog Prevention: Clogs can lead to a variety of issues including weakening of your home’s foundation, sagging gutters and insect infestations in the debris. Fine mesh grates and other styles of guards prevent this buildup.
- Reduced Maintenance: By reducing the need for cleaning you can save your own time and/or the cost of professional gutter maintenance.
- Ice Prevention: All that muck and moisture that accumulates in your gutters will freeze in winter and cause sagging or rusting.
- Reduced Fire Damage: In the unfortunate event that your home catches on fire, roof and structure damage can be reduced if there aren’t dry leaves and debris in your gutters. If your home is very close to your neighbor’s, this is especially important since the fire could spread to their home if it’s not controlled.
Types of Gutter Guards
Gutter guards come in a range of styles with different advantages and disadvantages. Fine mesh shields are the best suited to homes that are near pine trees because they are able to stop thin pine needles from entering the gutter. Metal guards and surface tension gutter guards are typically more durable but are not as good at preventing small debris. Your experienced Aurum representative will walk you through the differences and recommend the best one for your home.
