DO I NEED LEAF GUTTER GUARDS?
The quick answer is that this is a matter of personal preference. All gutters need occasional cleaning, and the frequency is usually determined by the type and size of nearby trees.
If you enjoy ladder work and cleaning the gutters or have someone who can do it for you, you might opt out. However, if you think there’s not much worse than cleaning gutters, this option will be the ticket for you.
Gutter guards cover the gutters and only allow water and very small particles to fall into and flow through the gutter. This added protection lets leaves, acorns, pinecones and debris flow off the roof rather than clogging your gutter system.
