Affordable, Seamless Gutter Guard Installation Tweed

Gutter protection is the process of installing systems and products that prevent gutter clogging and breakage. The most common type of eavestrough protection is gutter guards. Gutter guards, also known as leaf guards or guard covers, work to keep debris out of eavestroughs and downspouts. They function by restricting outside elements from entering your gutters, but still allow water to flow through. As a result, the guards will lower the amount of gutter cleaning you need which will save you money in the future.

There are numerous types of gutter guards on the market. Most are commonly made of vinyl, pvc, steel, aluminum and even copper. The common aluminum gutter has a life expectancy of 20-30 years, depending on maintenance, upkeep, and weather conditions.

If you are looking to invest in your Tweed home, consider installing gutter guards. A&K Gutter Service has 10+ years of experience and can install your leaf guards leaving no gaps, untight screws, or debris. Whether you live near the Municipality of Tweed Community Centre or Crookston Road, Tweed, ON, our team can help.

Are gutter guards maintenance free?

In short the answer is no, all gutter guards will require some maintenance to keep them functioning properly. However, installing guard screens will significantly decrease the amount of gutter maintenance you do throughout the year.

With covers, you no longer need to clean the interior of your gutter system. This saves you time and money. Although, when it rains, falling leaves can get caught on top of the guards. You may have to brush the guards to remove any leaves that have accumulated. Quite often as they dry out, the leaves and debris will blow off on their own.

Full-Service Leaf Filter Installation in Tweed, Ontario

No one enjoys cleaning out their eavestrough. It is a time-consuming and frustrating job that homeowners frequently put off. However, pushing this problem to the side only makes it worse. Gutters act as a waterproofing system for your property and direct rainwater to a safe location away from your home. Without proper cleaning, your eavestrough can get clogged which allows the rainwater to seam into your foundation. 

You might be wondering what's the solution. Well, you could simply commit to cleaning your gutters more often, but no one has time for that. Instead, you can be like most wise homeowners and get gutter guards installed. A&K Gutter Service offers affordable gutter guard installation for homes all over Tweed, Ontario.

Best Gutter Guard Installation Tweed

A well-functioning eavestrough system is your first line of defence against water damage, and a good leaf guard system can keep debris and plant life from clogging your gutters and generating problems that can cost you thousands of dollars to fix.

When it comes to a gutter guard installation project, A&K Gutter Service in Tweed takes many factors into consideration. Before starting, we clean and reline your gutters, ensure they are properly fastened to the fascia board, and make sure they are sloping towards the downspout. Gutter guards are also rarely one size fits all, so we always measure precisely before installing.

We have 10+ years of experience providing gutter guard repair and can get your eavestroughs fixed in no time. When performing a leaf filter repair, we carefully examine the damaged area and determine a gutter fix solution.

Benefits of Gutter Guards

Gutter guards in Tweed provide many benefits for the homeowners that choose to install them on their property. They significantly reduce the amount of maintenance needed on your home and prevent you from having to perform the dangerous and expensive task of gutter cleaning. Besides requiring less maintenance, gutter guards also provide many other benefits.

Fire Protection

If your home is in a region prone to fires, gutter guards will provide additional fire protection for your property. Embers can quickly travel a long distance during a fire. When embers come into contact with dry leaves and debris stuck in your gutters, they can ignite and start a fire. Gutter guards act as a physical barrier between debris and lit embers. They also prevent leaves from accumulating in the first place.

Prevents Insect and Roden Infestation

One of the key benefits to Tweed gutter guard installation is that they prevent rodents and insects from living in gutters. Birds and rodents love nesting in eavestrough. These nests can block water flow and cause damage to your home. Gutters are also a great breeding ground for insects. Gutter covers prevent all this from happening and even act as a barrier for rodents trying to get past the fascia and into your roof.

Saves Time and Money

If you have eavestroughs without leaf guards, you are aware of the maintenance they require. Gutter cleaning needs to be done at least twice a year. Whether you DIY cleaning your gutters or hire a professional, it is money and time wasted. Gutter guards require very little maintenance and keep debris from gathering and clogging your gutters. There's no need for constant cleaning fees, which saves you time and money.

Imporves Water Flow and Stops Blockages

Installing gutter helmets can improve the flow of water through your downspouts and gutters by preventing them from becoming clogged with twigs, leaves, debris, and sticks. This is great, especially if you have a rainwater tank (aka rain barrel). When it rains, the guards will help your tank replenish faster. Your tank's water will be cleaner and more purified of pollutants and particles.

Stops Premature Rust and Corrosion

When moisture-ridden leaves and debris accumulate in your gutters, it increases the probability of rust and/or corrosion occurring. Leaf guards are intended to keep leaves, pine needles, and other elements out of your gutters.

FAQS

Got a question? Our Tweed gutter contractors are here to help!

How long does it take to install gutter guards?On most residential homes in Tweed, gutter guard installation will take one to four hours to complete. On larger homes, the process should still take less than a day to finish.

Do gutter guards really work?The short answer is yes, gutter guards do work. While they cannot guarantee that you will never have clogged gutters again, they can significantly reduce the number of times you need to clean your gutters and lower the risk of damage to your home and property caused by clogged gutters and sitting water.

Do gutter guards go over or under the drip edge?No matter what kind of gutter guard you choose, it must be properly positioned under your exisiting roofing materials. If you have a drip edge (metal flashing that's installed at the edges of the roof), gutter screens clamp onto the front of the gutter, go underneath the entire roof, and sit on the drip edge.

Does a gutter guard stop rats?Yes, gutter guards can help prevent rodents and pests from entering your gutters.

What time of year should you buy gutter guards?August or September are the best months to have new gutter guards installed. However, any time of year works.

What Are Some Signs That You Have Clogged Gutters?1) Water is Spilling Over Your Gutters Edge
2) Plants Are Growing in Your Gutters
3) No Water is Coming Down the Downspout
4) Sagging Eavestrough
5) Pests Are Living in Your Troughs
6) Stain Marks Are Present On the Siding By Your Gutters

Can I install gutter guards myself?If you have some handyman skills, DIY gutter guard installation is possible. However, there are many types of gutter cover materials and each varies with ease of installation. There are also numerous factors you need to consider like cleaning your troughs beforehand, repairing damaged sections, matching the exisiting slope of the gutter, and securing the guards without gaps or lose screws. With all the possibilities of error, we recommend hiring a professional.

Are gutter guards installed under shingles?Some types of gutter guards are installed under the first row of shingles on your roof. We recommend avoiding these because they can break your roof's water barrier, leading to costly water damage in the future.

What is an alternative to gutter guards?While we highly recommend gutter guards, downspout filters are a more affordable alternative to full-on gutter protection. A downspout filter is a device that traps debris to prevent clogs in a storage tank or drainage system.

Do gutter guards work in the snow?Gutter guards help with keeping gutters clear during the winter months. They allow any snow and ice that accumulates to run off once it melts. They also strengthen your gutter system, protecting it from damage caused by ice weight.

Is installing a leaf filter in Tweed worth it?While it depends on your specific circumstances and location, in general, leaf filters are worth it. They save you precious money and time.
