Leaf Guards

Nothing wreaks more havoc on your gutters than debris. Leaves, twigs, debris, seeds, and sand all naturally pool into your gutters over time. Just likea natural beaver dam, these piles of debris turn into dams that block the course of rainwater, preventing your gutter to function properly. To keep thisfrom occuring you have to perform routine maintenance on your gutters, which requires you to get on the roof and cleaning out your gutters. Gutter guards lessen the hassle of cleaning your gutters by keeping the debris from getting into your gutters.

Leaf Guards are an integral part of keeping your rain gutters

What are Gutter Guards?

Gutter guards are metal meshes that sit on top of your gutters. Guards allow water to flow into the systems while keeping large material out. Gutter guards are designed to allow wind to easily blow off debris, making required cleanings required less frequently. Cleaning the debris that stubbornly sits on your gutter guards is far easier to clean than cleaning the inside of your gutters. They are also designed to keep animals like bats, squirrels, birds, mice, and mosquitoes from calling your gutters home.

We interchangeably use two gutter guard brands: Leaf Blaster and Bulldog.

Leaf Blasters utilizes a thick micromesh design made from Type 316 stainless-steel, while the support frame is made of aluminum. The mesh sports a patented Z-bend technology which allows for incredible water flow and easy airflow to allow natural wind to lift off debris.

Bulldog uses a patented ribbed design for its gutter guards. Built of .019 aluminum, their guards are sturdy and efficient. Their guards also come with a lifetime warranty and their Bulldog Guarantee, which guarantees your gutters will remain clog-free for 25 years.

Though both have their unique designs, they are both fantastic at doing their jobs. Here are the benefits that they both share:

  • Fits in all gutters and roofs

  • Keeps birds and rats from nesting.

  • Unseen from the ground

  • Capable of handling any torrential downpour

  • Both of their patented designs allow debris to be naturally blown by wind.

Both brands are highly capable of getting the job done and extending the life of your seamless gutter system.

We are huge advocates for the power of gutter guards—they keep your gutters free of debris and functioning at one hundred percent every time a storm hits. We recommend gutter guards for literally any gutter system. We are professional certified installers for either brand of gutter guards. We will gladly add gutter guards to an existing system and recommend it for any new system.
