Gutters will collect pine needles, insects, snow, ice, seed pods, moss, pollen, maple tree helicopters, the cottonwood tree snows in June, and lots of leaves.
Gutter guards, gutter covers, leaf covers, leaf protectors, and leaf guards are just some of the confusing terms you might see on keeping debris out of your gutters.
At Raymar Eavestrough, we’ve elected to carry Premium Screen, and two Gutter Cover solutions called Leafree ™ and Tru Guard ™. Screens are the most economical solution for home owners but covers do minimize your maintenance and cleaning.
Gutter Covers - They Do Help
Types of Gutter Guards
Gutter Screens help keep leaves and twigs out of your gutter. This type slips under the first row of shingles and attaches to the front edge of the gutter.
Gutter Covers are designed to minimize the need for regular cleaning of your gutters. Raymar Eavestrough is proud to sell and install Leafree ™ covers.
Gutter Covers come in different styles to aesthetic match your home’s roof and fascia colors. Raymar Eavestrough is also proud to sell and install Tru Guard ™ covers.
Gutter Guards Q&A
Yes, if you have built or purchased a home with mature trees all around you, it’s a great idea. And, it’s cheaper for you than adding gutter guards later.
Yes. In most cases, Gutter Guards / Leaf Protectors will need some attention. Without Gutter Guards, you’ll have to clean out your gutters twice per year if you live around mature trees. With Leaf Guards, you might get away with cleaning them every 3-4 years.
