Some homeowners think that gutter guards complete their gutter installation project. Gutter guards are supposed to help your roofing system’s efficiency. They should not cause issues that may compromise your home’s integrity. The problem with some gutter guards is that they may cause blockage and eventually, water damage. If you’re thinking of installing gutter guards, Advantage Seamless discusses some reasons to consider skipping them. Possible Problems With Gutter GuardsIf you live in an area with a lot of trees, leaves and tree litter can easily get past some gutter guards or screens and cover them completely, preventing water from getting through. While there are guards that use a curved design to help prevent leaves from covering them, that design causes a distinct problem. By piling up against the higher section of the barrier, small twigs and other debris can form a dam.Even if the gutter guards function well, moss and algae growth remains a problem. As long as leaves make their way into the gutters, it creates the ideal place for moss to grow. It can spread and affect your whole roofing system if left untreated. It can even obstruct downspouts and cause clogging. You need to address mold on your gutters and roof immediately. Keep your gutters clean and clear of obstructions by hiring a local contractor that offers quality gutter cleaning service.Consider Seamless GuttersAdvantage Seamless specializes in seamless gutter installation. Unlike gutters with guards, seamless gutters are simply seamless. Most seamless gutter systems are made from aluminum or steel, and they expand and contract simultaneously. They have a lower chance of leaking and clogging. Advantage Seamless uses a 0.032-inch aluminum gutter coil, the thickest aluminum coil that can be roll-formed in a gutter machine. Other prevalent materials are 0.027-inch aluminum gutter coil and steel gutter coil. Thinner metals, such as these, expand and contract with the seasons and are more easily damaged by hail. Advantage Seamless offers seamless gutters with a long-time warranty, the thickest aluminum on the market and leak-free box miters.Advantage Seamless makes custom designs to fit your needs and preferred style.
