Choose Gutter Guards that
Reduce Cleaning and Extend Gutter Life
Gutter guards are a great addition to your seamless gutters. They protect the gutter system from damage, debris, and rust, making your gutters last longer.
Their purpose is to reduce leaves and debris entering your gutters, doubling (sometimes even quadrupling) the time between cleanings.
Gutter Tex uses rivets instead of screws to prevent debris catching and buildup, which further increases months between cleaning.
Gutter Tex recommends and installs a range of gutter guards. Your choice of make and model will depend on factors such as the pitch of your roof. Our gutter guards are of such high quality and durability that they can withstand the weight of a falling branch.
Do Gutter Guards Eliminate the Need for Gutter Cleaning?
Perhaps you’ve heard that you will never have to clean your gutters if you install screens. The truth is, no gutter guard completely eliminates the need for regular cleaning.
Normally, your gutters should be cleaned twice a year. Summer and Fall are excellent times for this maintenance. The hot Texas summers dry out leaves and other organic debris, turning it into a fire hazard. Fall is when your gutters are most likely to become clogged due to the number of falling leaves.
Gutter guards are a wise investment because gutter cleaning is needed less frequently, your rain gutters function better, and they extend the life of your gutter system.
The Dangers of Unprotected and Clogged Gutters
As we’ve mentioned, dry leaves in your gutters will act as fuel for any stray ember that lands there. A fire can quickly spread to the inside of your attic or roof cavity.
A clogged gutter is a haven for all sorts of pests. Mice, termites, mosquitoes, and even birds will come to your gutters to nest and feed. When the weather cools down, they quickly find their way into your home, causing major problems and health issues.
When your gutters are full, and there is nowhere for the rainwater to go, it begins to run down your walls.
In the case of wooden walls, the wood absorbs water until it begins to rot and warp. Water in brick and stonework will cause it to expand, resulting in cracks.
Installing gutter guards greatly reduces the risk of these problems by keeping out more of the debris that causes them.
