“They are coming!” That’s the line from Lord of the Rings when Gandolf struck fear in the hearts of all his listeners. “They are coming”…the leaves are coming, and if you have not built up your defenses, you should move swiftly to do so before winter returns to Cleveland, Oh. In so doing, make sure you are careful to choose gutter covers that work. With hundreds of proprietary gutter guards and covers on the market, and with all the varying philosophies, it’s enough to make the consumer’s head spin. With a little research and some common sense though, it’s really not that hard to choose an effective gutter guard, especially if you choose the right company.

There is a lot that could and should be said here, but to save time here is a helpful link that details the objective criteria for homeowners when Choosing a Guard. Simply put, a gutter guard must achieve two very important functions: 1. Effective Gutter Guards should preserve the function of the gutter and allow maximum water flow. If a guard allows the water to sheen over when it rains, then it’s completely defeating the purpose of the gutter (most guards do this!). 2. Effective Gutter Guards should protect the gutters from leaves, seedpods, sticks, flowers, pine needles, etc. In Cleveland, there is almost a year-round barrage of debris affecting your gutters. An effective guard will constantly keep your gutters clean on the inside and should have little to no maintenance on the top of the guards.
