Gutter Guard Systems

Gutter Guards

When your home is surrounded by heavy tree coverage, debris can build up easily and start to clog the gutters. This clog can cause water to back up and overflow which can cause a multitude of problems. One way to put an end to these problems is the installation of gutter guards on your gutter system.

Gutter guards are metal pieces that are installed onto existing gutters. The guards serve as a layer of protection which keeps debris from falling in and clogging up the gutter. At Good Shepherd Roofing, we offer two different styles of gutter guards.

Standard Gutter Guards

One option that is offered is the standard gutter guards. These guards are the most used option, and they are metal pieces that are installed on top of the gutters. The metal sheets have holes which allow water to run through while keeping out the brunt of leaves, pine cones, and different debris that can cause issues.

Mesh Gutter Guards

Mesh gutter guards are a more effective, higher cost option compared to the standard gutter guards. Instead of the guards being metal sheets, the mesh guards are a mesh metal material that can be laid over the existing gutters. The benefit of getting these installed is the size of the openings in the guards and the lightweight nature of the guards.. Instead of having holes, the mesh material allows water to flow through while keeping small particles out of the gutters. Particles from the asphalt shingles on the roof can fall off and get into the gutters. The mesh option allows much better protection from these smaller particles.
As mentioned before, gutter guards are very beneficial for heavily wooded areas. If they are not used, gutters can clog and water will start to build up and this can cause issues with fairly costly remedies. Soffit and siding can start to rot and the gutters themselves can get worn and start to crack. It is better to be proactive and eliminate the problem rather than wait and take care of it after the fact, and gutter guards could be the perfect solution.
