That’s why a comprehensive gutter protection system like Gutter Shutter is so important to your home’s health. Gutter Shutter features a built-in gutter cover that helps prevent:
If you’ve ever had to clear out clogged gutters, it’s likely not an experience you’re excited to repeat. Gutter protection keep leaves, twigs, dirt, seeds, and other debris from falling into the trough and clogging it. Gutter Shutter will keep you off the ladder because you’ll no longer have to clear clogged gutters again—your new gutters will include a lifetime no-clog guarantee.
Clogged gutters can force water back onto the roof. This can become particularly problematic during winter when that trapped water freezes and forms ice dams. Ice dams can quickly shorten the lifespan of your roofing system, but thankfully Gutter Shutter is one of the best gutter protection systems for preventing this hazard.
The Risk of Fire
All it takes is one ember escaping from a nearby bonfire or barbecue to land on a pile of dried leaves in your exposed gutter system for you to have a real problem on your hands. Gutter Shutter’s patented gutter protection hood sheds leaves and twigs away from your home and to the ground, reducing the risk of fire.
An open gutter system with a view may look attractive to birds, rodents, and other critters, but you don’t need the hassle of dealing with these unwanted guests. Gutter Shutter’s gutter opening is large enough to allow only water to enter the system, effectively blocking access to pests with four legs or two wings.
