Problems Caused by Gutter Guards and Gutter Covers
Gutter Guards and Gutter Covers are prone to serious problems that can cause costly damage to your home. Before choosing or installing ordinary gutter covers and gutter guards, here are some facts you should know.
Gutter guards and gutter covers are secondary gutter parts that are installed above existing or new open gutters. They are attached to the roof, positioned above the gutter and “cover” it to keep out debris.
If your existing gutters had leaks or other problems, these problems will not be resolved by placing a gutter cover or gutter guard above old gutters. Also since the majority of these covers are not seamless and come in only 3 ft. or 6 ft. lengths, they are subject to sagging and leaks at the joined areas.
Gutter guards and gutter covers are attached either over shingles or under them by piercing roof decking and roof felt. Often this method invalidates your roof warranties, and putting holes in your roof can lead to leaks and other costly water damage.
Whether they are attached to your roof over or under the shingles, these types of gutter guards and gutter covers, protrude from the end of your roof, altering your roofline and its appearance, as well as the curb appeal of your home.
