Is it time for gutter protection?

Whether you refer to them as gutter guards, gutter screens, or gutter covers, their purpose is still the same: to prevent leaves, twigs, and other debris from collecting in your gutters and blocking water flow.

Manufacturers have developed many ways to keep gutters clean and clog-free. Some work better than others. To figure out which gutter guards work best for you, it helps to ask some key questions:

  1. Do gutter guards work for filtering everything? Gutter guards will keep all but the smallest debris out of your gutter, including pine needles. Some gutter screens or mesh-type gutter covers won't prevent small particles, like plant seeds and granules, from accumulating in your gutters.
  2. Will installing gutter guards damage roof shingles? Many gutter guards require lower courses of roof shingles to be pried up in order to install the screen or cover. Our professional installers ensure that this is done properly to avoid damage.
  3. Can gutter guards clog with leaves? This can be a problem with many screen-type gutter covers, which is why we'll work with you to determine the best type of gutter guard for your home.
  4. Can the gutter cover come loose or damage easily? Like any other exterior part of your house, there is always the chance your gutters can be damaged by Mother Nature. However, we use high-quality products that are durable and long-lasting under normal weather patterns.
  5. Will they match my gutters? Some gutter guards come in a wide variety of colors, so we can match the guard to your existing gutters. 
  6. Do gutter guards work in heavy rains? Without the right cover, gutters can still fill with debris. That will block rainwater, causing it to overflow and spill onto the house. That is why we recommend gutter guards that prevent clogging and allow water to seamlessly flow into the system.

LeaFreeTM gutter protection

LeaFreeTM works on the scientific principle of water adhesion. The patent pending deisgn allows water to enter the gutter while keeping leaves and debris out. The design allows LeaFreeTM to be custom-fit to any home by adjusting to any roof pitch and the low profile design beautifies the look of your home by blending your gutters with the shingles and hiding unsightly metal flashing.

LeaFreeTM does not install over additional hangers or brackets that can move or shift overtime. The panels are only screwed into the lip of the gutter, and not into the roof or fascia.

They can also be easily repaired! LeaFreeTM comes in 4-foot panels so if a section were to be damaged, it can easily be repaired.  

This gutter protection comes in 16 different colors (plus copper) to match your new or existing gutters and a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
