Leaf Protection with a Gutter Guard Solution
What are Gutter Guards? When it comes to providing a solution that will keep your gutters free of:
- Leaves – Pine needles, flowers, and more
- Debris – Shingle grit, lichens, shade-born growth.
- Small Animals – Squirrels, snakes, birds, and more
- Pests – Mosquito’s, spiders, and other insects.
Gutter Guards are often the best and most practical option to keeping your gutter clean. They are most commonly referred to as leaf guards.
We continue to evaluate and research new-to-market products to meet our ultimate goal of finding the best gutter guard available for you.
Why do I need a Leaf Guard?
Leaf protection for your gutters is important in maintaining a gutter system that continues to work properly by preventing clogged gutters. Gutter guard installation also significantly decreases the maintenance required on your gutter system and, with the right guard, will eliminate interior gutter cleaning completely.
Maintaining a clean gutter without a guard requires cleaning both your gutters and downspouts at least twice a year. This will allow your entire gutter system to handle its highest capacity of rainfall. This also reduces the risk of overflow, rotted fascia, mildew, deterioration of foundation, landscape erosion and other damage to your property.
However, cleaning your gutters has to be timed right and done more frequently in certain areas. The alternative option to cleaning gutters at least two times a year, is installing gutter guards.
Clients are often concerned by the initial cost of installing gutter guards. Unless you clean the gutters yourself, the minimum maintenance costs can often be much higher within just two-three years. On top of having leafless gutters, gutter guards can provide an added strength during the winter. The weight of snow, ice, branches, and late falling leaves can loosen your gutter system from your home, or tear it down completely. This added strength that guards provide, can reduce the risk of needing an entirely new gutter system after a rough winter.
What is the best Gutter Guard?
When leaf guards first entered the market, we ourselves, were initially sceptical of their performance. Imagining how they would actually work didn’t relate to our understanding of a gutter system.
However, we decided to get into the market and start installing guards. It wasn’t until screen mesh gutter protection, and other forms of leaf protection for your gutters were introduced to us, did we see a potential real solution.
After some extensive research we were soon convinced the mesh guard would be the best leaf guard for our customers.
As we installed the mesh guard, we found that many homeowners, like yourself, found the guard provided protection against many of these gutter destructing elements, and required far less maintenance.
However, not even mesh gutter guards are created equal. Because of this, The Gutter Boys that just do Gutters only offer and provide gutter cover solutions that we feel, not only perform the best, but also provide the best solution for each client.
Why a Mesh Gutter Guard?
We know the importance of clog free gutters to our clients, and we have found that the gutter mesh designs, and gutter mesh products provide the best coverage, water flow, and performance.
We want to always provide our clients with the best rated gutter guards and the best gutter guard protection systems. It is for this reason that Gutter Boys is always researching and testing new-to-market products.

Your gutters are the defense against extensive water damage.
Our job is to protect your home from having clogged gutters and to prevent you from having to clean the muck from the interior. Mostly, the product will self-shed with the wind, but on some homes the debris might have to be easily removed from the surface.
Your home’s main gutter system gathers rainwater from the roof line and controls its path down the house to ground. Underground gutter drains can be helpful for moving the water away from the foundation even further by attaching to the downspouts on your home and draining underground.
Cleaning them is similar to a process used to clear debris from the side gutter pipes on your house. Some of our divisions provide this service but not all.
This means that your gutters are most likely clogged. The build-up of leaves, and debris can cause this. When there is a substantial amount of rain and your gutters are backed up, the water will begin to overflow. Your downspouts can also get clogged. If the water cannot flow out of the downspout, it will back up and overflow from you gutter.
Clogged or leaky gutters are one of the biggest causes of basement leaks, mold and other foundation problems. A gutter cleaning can solve flooding. Cleaning them at least twice a year is highly recommended.
In autumn when preparing for winter, be sure to clean the gutters of debris, inspect seams and anchors, check for structural damage, and check your downspouts. Having a proper cleaning right before winter will help with this winter build up.
While you may not know it, your gutters are an essential part of your home or your businesses roofing. They work day in and day out catching falling debris and directing the flow of rainwater away from your foundation.
