Signs Your Gutter System Needs Leaf Guards

Leaf guards are an important tool that helps mitigate the risk of clogged gutters and the home damages and expenses associated with them.

At Talbert Gutters, we specialize in providing LeafBlaster Pro and E-Z Lock leaf guards to our customers but find that sometimes it takes more convincing than it should for the job to get approved. 

If you are a homeowner that doesn’t have a leaf guard over your gutter system, here are some signs that it’s time to invest in these products before true damage begins to occur to your home and its foundation.

Your Gutters Are Rusted

Leaf guards not only protect your gutters from clogging up but can also help prevent excess water from constantly flowing through your system. Without a leaf guard over your gutters, continuous water flow can lead to rust, corrosion, and the untimely replacement of your entire gutter system.

You Notice Water Stains Beneath Your System

If you step outside and find that your concrete is riddled with water stains or that your home is discolored near your gutters, this is a huge sign that you need leaf gutters to protect your gutter system.

Water stains on your property mean that your gutters have accumulated leaves and grime to the point that any water that reaches your home is only splashing out of your gutters and isn’t letting your system do its job.

Leaf guards help mitigate your gutters clogging up from leaves and larger debris and help ensure a steady flow that doesn’t let the water soak into your home’s siding or foundation.

You Constantly Have to Clean Your Gutters

Gutters typically require a thorough cleaning at least once or twice a year. However, if you live in an area where a lot of leaves are blown around, you could find yourself climbing up to clean your gutters once a month. 

This is a time-consuming process that can easily be mitigated with the help of leaf guards that keep your gutters as clean as possible throughout the entire year.

You Have Trees Near Your Gutters

Even one tree near your gutters is enough to warrant the installation of leaf guards. During the fall and early winter trees in Texas are constantly shedding their leaves. Unfortunately, dried-out and ignored leaves are extremely problematic to a home. 

In the instance that a lightning strike hits the home, dried-up leaves resting in gutters are highly flammable and the situation could quickly lead to a devastating house fire.

Leaf guards help prevent leaves from hiding out in your gutters and are excellent tools for a homeowner to keep their home a bit safe during the fall and winter.
