Top 5 Signs You Need New Gutters With Gutter Guards

Gutters were created specifically for a continuously wet environment like the PAcific Northwest.  The function of gutters is to guide rainwater off the roof and drain it away from the foundation of your home. By removing the water and channeling it fat away prevents damage to your home and your landscaping. Without gutters, runoff water may wear down the siding and erode the foundation, causing costly and unwanted repairs. Overall, gutters are an extremely important investment when it comes to protecting your home.

But there is more to do to fully protect your home from water damage. The rainwater that flows down your roof into your gutters carries  debris like shingle granules, pine needles, and leaves. Over time, this debris accumulates and clogs your gutters. Clogs can create water damage to your roof, roof structure and siding.  Clogs also lead to the corrosion of the gutters themselves. To prevent clogs, you have to clean the gutters or have someone else clean them. But you don’t have to any more. 

As the leading Roofing Contractor from Seattle to Tacoma, Guardian Roofing’s #1 goal has always been to extend the life of your roof. After hundreds of thousands of roof inspections, we realized in addition to needing roof assistance our clients were also in need of gutter help too! That is why we offer gutter guards to  help you extend the life of your roof and your gutters.

Gutter guards are a device installed along with your gutters that prevents leaves and pine needles from getting into your gutters, while still allowing water to drain through. This allows the water to flow freely and prevents clogs. When you and your Guardian Roofing specialist discuss which kind of gutters and gutter guards to have installed on your home, be sure to do your research and weigh the pros and cons of each option. One especially popular gutter option that many are turning to now are seamless gutters because they more effectively remain free of leaks and clogs. Guardian Roofing is proud to offer GutterDome brand gutter guards. 

Protect your home with Gutter Guards from GutterDome

Gutter Dome is a screen that provides a permanent solution to the unavoidable issue of clogged gutters. Unmatched in durability and performance, Award Winning GutterDome has several unique factors that set it apart as the industry’s best choice for gutter guards. 

GutterDome gutter guards help maintain your roof: 

  • Gutter cracking – Cracked gutters don’t efficiently drain the water away from your home. You need to have your roof and gutters inspected regularly to find gutter damage. Larger cracks may be visible on dry, clear days from the ground, but smaller cracks may only reveal themselves in a storm or upon inspection. Individual cracks may be repaired, but extensive cracking and damage is a reason to consider replacement. 
  • Seam Stress – Most gutters are often vulnerable at the seams where two horizontal sections meet. Along these seams leaks and separations are common, which can lead to water damage both outside and inside your homes. This is why seamless gutters are so popular. Gutter seams can sometimes be mended, but before you attempt to repair on your own, contact  the Team at Guardian Roofing.
  • Peeling Paint-  Damaged gutters can ruin a perfectly good paint job on your home. Regularly checking your exterior siding and soffits for any paint that has bubbled up or peeled away due to excess moisture. Wherever you find damaged paint, be sure to check the condition of the nearest gutter. If your painted gutters are peeling, then you most likely have a leak. In cases where your damaged gutters are causing peeling paint on your soffits, contact the Guardian Roofing. Likely, there is more water damage to your roof and structure. 
  • Mildew Madness – Excess water promotes mold and mildew growth. That is why downspouts terminate about six feet away from your home. Moisture accumulation near the foundation tends to find its way into the basement, eventually causing unsightly, unhealthy, and often rather smelly mildew growth. If you encounter mold and mildew in a formerly dry, mildew-free area below ground, damaged gutters are the most likely cause. Contact Guardian Roofing today to schedule a FREE inspection to check out your gutters. 
  • Stop The Rot – When your gutters get clogged or have a leak, they allow rain water to cascade down the sides or your  home. Peeling, discolored paint might be the least of your concerns. If allowed to continue, the excess water leads to rot in exterior soffits, eaves, and wood trim elements like window sills and door jambs. These areas can no longer keep out the weather and pests. If your gutters are causing damage like this, give the Team at Guardian Roofing a call for a FREE estimate to replace your gutters with GutterDome Gutters.
