The Truth About Gutter Covers And Gutter Guards

Now that it's fall, your mailbox has probably seen a lot of ads asking you to install gutter or gutter covers to keep fallen leaves from clogging your gutters.

There is no doubt that gutter cleaning is important for every homeowner. Leaves, dirt, twigs, mud, and other items can clog your gutters and downspouts and incur other costs if not checked. This is where the company has come in with gutter covers and top leaf guards for gutters designed to keep you from cleaning your gutters again from the rain. 

Sounds like good news until you realize the high cost of this system:

Are you now thinking about how much it would cost if a building contractor or sewage company hired a building contractor or sewage company to clean your sewer every year?

Apart from the cost factor, have you then considered whether these covers or fuses actually work? The only system that actually does what it advertises is Gutter Protectors. Unfortunately, it's expensive for most people.

Why does the gutter cover or gutter guard fail? Because while they keep all the big twigs and leaves from falling into the drain, the smaller debris will attack and start to settle, eventually clogging the gutter.

Sewer covers are a great idea and you may want to install them in your home, but for most people, it's probably best to clean them every year and save money.
