Roof Maintenance & Care: Why Install Gutter Covers?

By November 24, 2014No Comments

Gutters play a key role in preventing moisture-related damage on your roof. To make sure your gutters remain in good condition, using gutter covers is highly recommended.

Here are the key functions of gutter covers:

●    Enable water to flow properly through the gutters and downpipes

●    Heated gutter covers can help prevent snow buildup and ice dam formation

●    Metal gutter covers can also act as a fire shield in case there’s a flame nearby

Effects and advantages of installing gutter covers in Albany:

●    Lessen the number of times that you have to clean your gutters

●    Prolong the lifespan of the gutters as they serve as protection against damp debris

●    Water that drains off become clearer as the gutter cover helps filter out contaminants

●    Prevent rotting and rusting caused by blockage of damp residues in the gutters

●    Prevent accumulation of stagnant water that could overflow during a continuous rainfall or serve as a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other insects and pests.

●    Prevent rodents, possums, and birds from nesting in the gutters especially during the cold season

Generally, gutter covers prevent overflowing of water that can be dangerous as it can compromise the structural integrity of your roof. When this happens, water may enter your home and damage its foundation.  Unsightly stains may also occur in your home’s exterior due to overflowing gutters. With gutter covers, you can prevent these problems from happening.
