Protect your downspouts and gutter system from debris and animals with gutter covers from Frederic Roofing.
Protect your gutters with gutter covers from Frederic Roofing
How your roof collects and drains off rainwater is important to the life of your roof and everything beneath it. Gutter covers prevent leaves, sticks, and other debris from blocking the downspouts in your gutter system. Water left sitting in clogged gutters can cause all kinds of problems for your home or business:
• Foundation issues – Gutters direct rainwater away from your building, but if your gutters are clogged, the water can seep underground around your foundation where it will freeze and cause cracks in the concrete, or worse, find an existing seam and flood the basement.
• Frozen gutters – When standing water freezes in your gutters it creates ice dams which restrict water flow.
• Fire risk – Embers can travel a long way from your grill or fire ring to your roof. A clogged gutter filled with leaves and twigs are a perfect place for them to land and cause a serious fire.
• Premature rust and corrosion – Standing water and soggy leaves and pine needles do nothing to prolong the life of your gutters.
Gutter covers, mesh gutter guards and stainless steel gutter screens are easy to install and are an effective way to preserve unimpeded water flow away from your house. An experienced roofing contractor like Frederic Roofing can help you evaluate your current drainage system and give you some options for how you can best protect your gutters and your home from unnecessary damage.
Even with gutter guards, it is recommended that you have the pros at Frederic Roofing inspect and clean your gutters twice a year. Mesh style gutter covers will keep small debris from entering your downspouts, but they need to be cleaned periodically and checked to make sure they are not damaged.
