Keeping your rain gutters clean of leaves and debris is just one of the chores that we end up doing every fall. It’s dull, repetitive, and just something you have to do. Many of us, undoubtedly, would much rather that we didn’t have to keep doing so. There is an inherent danger to going up on a ladder and, while precariously perched, doing your best to haul out any material that might have collected in your rain gutters and down spouts. Did you know that it’s surprisingly easy to damage your house in the process of going up that ladder to take care of the rain gutters?
It may seem like so much effort for so little benefit, but ask any Greenville SC roofing expert and they will tell you that neglecting to keep your gutters clean can lead to much larger headaches further down the line. Fortunately, there is an alternative to having to keep going up that ladder. By installing a gutter cover, or gutter guard, you can reduce the amount of time you spend each fall cleaning out your gutters.
Gutter covers act as a filter on your gutters, preventing clogging by keeping dirt, leaves, and other debris out. They also help keep out birds, insects, and small animals that might be inclined to turn your gutters into nesting places, which can be a real problem for roofing in Greenville SC. By preventing obstructions from affecting the proper flow of rainwater through your rain gutter system, gutter covers help protect your home from standing water that can contribute to the formation of mold, mildew, and rot, which can then weaken your eaves, soffit, and fascia, adversely affecting the structural integrity of your home.
