What Happens If You Don’t Clean Your Gutters?

Feb 18, 2020

GuttersAh, the never-ending chore list. There are bathtubs to scrub, floors to sweep, and gutters to clean. However, if you’re like most homeowners, that last task is typically one that frequently gets pushed further and further down the list. You’ll do it next weekend, promise! Before you know it, it’s been at least a year since you climbed a ladder to clean out your gutters and you’re not quite sure what you’ll find when you finally do.

Gutter cleaning is nobody’s idea of a grand way to spend a weekend, but it’s one that should be a regular part of your home maintenance routine for a variety of reasons. If not, debris can build up in your gutters and cause clogs that affect how water is channeled the next time a storm hits. Clogged gutters can lead to:

  • Roof leaks
  • Foundation damage
  • Landscape erosion
  • Insect infestation
  • Rotted wood
  • And more

With LeafGuard®, You May Never Have to Clean Your Gutters Again

At Byers, we understand how unpleasant it is to have to clean your gutters. The task is physically demanding, time-consuming, and dangerous. That’s why we install LeafGuard® gutters that are so effective, they come with a no-clog guarantee. This guarantee states that in the unlikely event that your gutters clog, we will come out and clean them—for free. With LeafGuard gutters installed, you can scratch the “clean gutters” task off your to-do list for good.

You may be thinking that this all sounds too good to be true. How are LeafGuard gutters able to stop debris collecting in the gutters or on the cover? This system can do that because its hood and trough are designed as one, continuous piece. Then, through the principle of liquid adhesion, rainwater is channeled over the sloped hood and into the trench while debris is sent over the edge.
