If you’re tired of risking life and limb, high up on a ladder in the cold wind on a precious Saturday to clean out the smelly gunk that clogs your gutters every Spring and Fall, then you need Gutter Guards!
Normal Minnesota gutters often catch more than just rainwater and melting snow. Leaves, sticks, and dirt (not to mention the occasional bird’s nest or even termites) will inevitably accumulate in gutters over time, clogging the gutter system and preventing it from doing its job.
Gutter guards are ingenious additions to a gutter system that prevent debris from accumulating. The most popular type of gutter covers on the market today are micro mesh, and Storm Group Gutters installs two of the most respected brands: Xtreme Gutter Guards, and Berger Gutter Covers.
Prevent costly water damage
The biggest problem we encounter from customers that report clogged gutters is water damage. When gutters get clogged form leaves and debris, water from rain or melting snow flows over the gutters and onto the ground below – right by your home’s foundation – and seeps into the ground, and usually into your basement and even in some cases, under the home itself!
If you’ve ever had water damage in a basement, then you know how costly it can be – replacing carpet, drywall, wood studs, and more – not to mention the inconvenience of ripping it all up, blowing fans, AND in some cases, never getting rid of that damp, musty, old water smell…
The good news is that having Storm Group Gutters install high-performance gutter guards can prevent costly gutter failure, and ensure that rainwater and melting snow flows freely into your gutter system, into the downspouts, and away from your home – an efficient design that keeps your home’s foundation and basement nice and dry, as a good gutter system should.
With micro-mesh gutter covers from Storm Group Gutters, debris such as leaves, sticks, and “helicopters” seeds fall effortlessly off of your roof, and onto the ground, keeping your gutter trough clean and clear.
The bonus is that no longer will you need to balance on a ladder every Spring and Fall for a few hours to scoop out all the gunk from your gutters. Gutter Guards keep you safely off the ladder and preserve your free time!
Gutter Guard FAQ
A: Gutter guards are designed to place a barrier over your gutter trough to prevent leaves and other debris from the roof from entering the gutter trough. Over time, leaves that collect and clog the gutters prevent water from flowing in the gutters to the downspout and away from your home. Unfortunately, clogged gutters can cause a host of problems – water needs to go somewhere, and it usually shoots over the clogged gutter onto the ground below – right next to your home’s foundation.
A concentrated area of forcefully dripping water right by your home can create water damage in the form of leaky basements, carpet and drywall damage and/or replacement, wood rot, mold, insect infestation, and more. At Storm Group Gutters, we feel that the type of high-performance gutter protection that we offer is well worth the investment in preventing this potential damage.
A: Yes, there are different names for it, like gutter helmet, leafguard, gutter king, and other types of leaf guards for gutters – some of which have trademarked names, some not – but overall the concept is the same: attempt to shield your gutters from leaves and debris so that water flows freely into the downspout and away from the house.
