Thinking Of Protecting Your Home With Gutter Guards? Choose Wisely!
Here at Smart Solutions, like you, we’re all about finding ways to protect your home against animals, the elements, and the damage each can cause. And of course, gutter guards can help. But did you know that some gutter guards can actually work against your efforts?
Many gutter guard systems attach to the top of the gutter, but tuck up underneath the shingles as well. This causes the shingles to jack up, which creates a space between the gutter and the roof. Systems that go up underneath of the shingles like this allow animals to get past the gutter system, and also affect the way water flows down the roof and into the gutters. As a result, you could be creating water problems and animal problems for yourself, when you think you’re doing something good for your home.
The reality is, you’re not supposed to have anything sitting underneath your shingles. So does that mean you simply can’t enjoy the benefits of gutter guards? Of course not. You just have to find the right system.
