Furthermore, keeping clogs from your home’s gutters will safeguard your home’s structural integrity.
In the paragraphs below, learn about gutter clog damage, the critters that get into gutters, and what gutter guards can do to help the problems. Should you currently have rodents or squirrels nesting in your gutters, call Covenant Wildlife Removal to evict them.
Stop Cleaning Your Gutters, Use Gutter Guard
Gutter Clog Damage
Leaves falling, acorn shedding, and twigs breaking, are all causes for concern for your home’s gutters. And in the winter, water can freeze in the gutters preventing proper drainage. Even shingle grit will build up in your gutters, increasing the debris amount. And then the damage will begin.
Gutter clogs cause all sorts of damage to your home. First, clogs will rot the screws and nails, securing the gutter to the house. The weight of the material filling the channels can bend and warp the gutter, leaving gaps in the elbows and where they meet the roof. These gaps are like a welcome mat for rodents and insects to enter the ceiling, walls, attic, and even the interior of your home.
An all-weather product like ArmourGuard Gutter Guards will prevent clogs, leaving you with no leaves and debris, no ice buildup, and no pest damage.
Why Critters Love Gutters
If you didn’t already know, rodents have teeth that never stop growing. If you ever had a pet hamster as a child, you would remember the salt wheel and wood toys you provided for the hamster to file its teeth. That is precisely what rodents do when they want to enter a home. It is second nature for them to chew at hard surfaces. And if it gains them entry into a nice place to nest, all the better for them.
Squirrels, rats, and mice will attack the window sills, wood decking, home siding, roofline eaves, and fascia causing extensive damage. Gutters give rodents a perfect walkway to enter and chew away at your home. What’s more, if the rodent decides to build a nest in your gutters, you will have a clogged gutter system and an angry rodent on your hands.
In that case, it is best to take two immediate actions.
- Call the wildlife removal experts like the friendly professionals at Covenant Wildlife Removal. They will remove the animals and nest safely and humanely, so you don’t evoke the wrath of an angry mama squirrel or rat.
- Invest in a gutter guard system like the micro-mesh systems offered by ArmourGuard to keep it from happening again.
All sorts of critters, not just rodents, love to nest in gutters, including wasps, bees, roaches, and birds. So, you see why gutter care is so crucial to the health of your home. But there are more reasons still.
Benefits of Gutter Guards
Indeed, by now, you can see the benefits of gutter guards. Not only do they keep the critters and insects out of your gutters and home, but they keep the channels clean as well. Reaching into gutters to remove twigs, acorns, seeds, leaves, insects, and debris is no one’s idea of an excellent way to spend the day. Not to mention, if you have a two-story home or don’t have the best ladder balance, it can be quite dangerous.
Gutter guards do even more, still.
- Gutter guards extend the life of your gutters by limiting rust and corrosion.
- They improve water drainage and flow by preventing blockage.
- Guards keep overflowing water and debris from trapping moisture at your foundation.
- Rodent guards on the downspouts keep small rodents from using the gutters as a personal tunnel system to your home.
Clearly, gutter guards seem like a good idea, right? So now you have the task of choosing the right product. There are many out there, but only one has what Covenant Wildlife Removal and ArmourGuard offers.
