How Well Do Gutter Guards Work?

May 20, 2020 | by Dmitriy Murza

We all want products that make our lives easy, especially where home maintenance is concerned. Without proper upkeep, our homes face potential damage that costs hundreds or even thousands of dollars in repair costs. Maintaining our homes can also take up a big portion of our free time without the best maintenance products.

Homes are protected by gutter Guards

Gutters protect the home against damage caused by rain and water. They’re an important part of any Portland home. Gutters wash water away from the foundation of the home and minimize potential damage to the structure of the property, the roof, and other areas. Gutters also require regular cleaning to remove leaves, sticks, dirt, and gunk that falls into them. If this gunk isn’t removed, gutters clog and they fail to protect the home the way that they should. Many homeowners install gutter guards on top of their gutters as an added measure of protection and safety.
