Every year we receive calls from homeowners with roof leaks caused by faulty or clogged drainage systems. When your drainage system becomes clogged with debris and can no longer do what it is intended to do, you’re in for a homeowner headache.
By keeping your drainage system cleared, rainfall will drain away from your home with ease.
Clear Gutters = Happy Homeowners
Pros Vs Cons
There are many gutter / leaf guard options on the market today. There are some made of metal, plastic & metal mesh for starters. Not every homeowner has been happy with their leaf guard system and others love theirs. And while this is the nature of all products, of all kinds, the right leaf guard system can be a substantial asset to a homeowner who has a hard time keeping their gutters clear due to many trees on the property. Some complaints are that certain gutter guards can still become clogged with debris like seed pods, which can cause the system to not be effective, but with so many options on the market now, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a system that will work best for your home.
Say you have deciduous trees in your yard, along with their leaves, they drop seed pods and other debris that can become lodged in or fall through the grates each autumn. That can amount to a lot of tree shedding each year. Thanks to innovative Roofers, there is now a solution to this problem. There are thin metal mesh options out there that cover the box to allow water in, but has holes too small for seed pods to fall through. This helps to eliminate both issues. There are also options that blend seamlessly with your shingles, making them discreet and aesthetically pleasing. Whatever your flavor, your Roofer should be able to give you more information on what other homeowners in your area are using.
