By keeping up with your gutter and keeping it clear from debris and ice, you can avoid leaking issues behind the facia or in your walls.
Over time, gutters get clogged from the buildup of debris; leaves, sticks, and even occasionally random toys. Gutter guards are important to prevent these buildups. They allow water to flow through the gutters while keeping debris out, and with gutter guards installed, maintenance is reduced. This will prevent some homeowners the risk of climbing on top of the roof as it is a high risk.
