While you may think gutter guards are only helpful for making it easier to clean your gutters each year, they actually can help you with much more than that. Although, saving you from having to spend hours of your time cleaning your gutters each year could be worth the time and effort on its own.

Here are some of the benefits of gutter guard installation.

Keep Mice and Insects Out

Gutters are a favorite place for a variety of animals, including mice, squirrels, birds, spiders and much more. Standing water is one of the main reasons why animals like gutters. The water makes them perfect breeding grounds for these animals.

The location of gutters also makes them a good jumping-off place to try to get into the attic or behind fascia boards, where animals and insects can build nests. Gutter guards will stop standing water from building in your gutters, which will keep mice, insects and other animals from using them as breeding grounds or homes.

Prevent Ice Dams and Freezing Water

Standing water is caused by blockages in your gutters, which are usually caused by debris in your gutters. Gutter guard installation will keep debris out of your gutters, which will decrease standing water. With no standing water in your gutters, ice dams and freezing water will be avoided, which can save you a lot of money.

Extend The Life Of Your Gutters

Gutters usually begin to break and decay due to rust and corrosion. This process is natural but is expedited by standing water. When water is allowed to sit in your gutters for extended periods of time, it will cause rust and corrosion. Gutter guard installation will alleviate the standing water, which will extend the life of your gutters.
