Be Done With Gutter Cleaning: Gutter Guards From Rapid-Dri Foundation Solutions
It’s hard to believe that something as minor as clogged gutters can lead to expensive structural damage and basement flooding. But if rainwater and snowmelt is not properly channeled away from your roof, that’s exactly what will happen. Regularly cleaning your gutters, therefore, is a must for any homeowner.
Gutter cleaning is a dangerous chore that involves climbing a ladder and removing wet debris and mold by hand. At Rapid-Dri Foundation Solutions, we recommend hiring a pro to do the dirty work for you, or simply investing in gutter guards. Available in a variety of styles, gutter guards will ensure your safety as well as that of your home.
The Different Kinds of Gutter Guards
- Mesh. These gutter guards are made of a metal sheet with tiny holes punched throughout. They are attached to the roof shingles and cover the whole gutter system.
- Reverse-Curve. This type of gutter guard has a configuration that allows water to flow over the solid cover and directly into gutters, utilizing surface tension. Debris such as leaves, twigs and dirt, meanwhile, fall to the ground.
- Bottle Brush. This gutter guard system features bristles which are installed upright inside the gutter. As water flows towards on the trough and into the downspouts, the debris settles on top.
- Foam. Made of plastic foam, this system is fitted directly within the gutter. Debris and dirt stay on top of the foam while water penetrates through and flows away to a safe place.
At Rapid-Dri Foundation Solutions, we’ll help you choose the right gutter guard system for your home. Say goodbye to gutter cleaning and hello to peace of mind!
