Growing Garden: Green debris can very quickly build up in your unprotected gutters and start to sprout a pretty unsightly garden. This growing garden will ruin the curb appeal of your home and also end up clogging your gutters, which will greatly impede the flow of rainwater away from the home. You might not even think of it, but clogged gutters can do serious damage to your home.
Muck: Twigs, sticks, pine cones, shingle grit and mud all easily form into a horribly disgusting concoction that is a pain to clean out of your gutters. The mud mixture will easily clog the gutters and stop the proper flow of water, which can lead to costly and irreversible damage to your roof, your landscaping and even your foundation.
Leaves: Leaves are the most basic clogging culprit. The falling leaves will rapidly create a backup in the gutter system and lead to clogs. It might seem like nothing, but water spilling over the side of your gutter system can create some serious damage to the single biggest investment of your lifetime – your home. Making matters worse, water runoff will create pools of stagnant water that will attract mosquitoes and other wildlife.
Wildlife: Bugs, Pests, bees, insects, squirrels and birds will all nest in your unprotected gutter system, as it’s an easy place to build a nest and the perfect safe haven from the bigger predators lurking below. You’ll most definitely fear climbing the ladder to clean out gross and nasty gutters when the unknown family of pests is waiting to attack above your head. These are the risks you’re taking with unprotected gutters. LeafFilter™ is a completely closed gutter protection system that is sealed shut on top of your gutters with no holes, openings or gaps, as this type of construction allows nothing but water to enter your gutters.
Spinners and Tassels: If you’re not regularly cleaning out the gutters on your home, those little needles, maple spinners, and oak tassels can wreak havoc on your roof and gutter system. They might seem small and harmless, but this tree debris can quickly clog your gutter system and damage your roof, your landscaping and even your foundation. The debris is always going to fall, so it’s better to be prepared with LeafFilter™, which helps prevent dangerous ladder-related accidents as you end up climbing the ladder to clean out clogged gutters.
