Northern California has recently experienced severe weather with heavy rains and strong winds, leaving gutters filled with leaves and other debris.
As rain gutter experts, we normally recommend that rain gutters get cleaned at least twice per year – Spring and Fall – however, it’s important that gutters be kept clean throughout the year.
Your local fire department also recommends regular gutter cleaning as a fire prevention measure. Furthermore, building codes require gutter guards or screens in areas where trees increase the risk of fire due to the accumulation of dry leaves and twigs.
Gutter guards or gutter screens are the most effective solution to keep your gutters clean and clear.
At Kobett Metals, we offer gutter guards for all profiles of gutters, with in-stock materials of every kind, including copper, galvanized steel, aluminum, and vinyl-coated screens.
What’s the difference between gutter guards and gutter screens?
While the terms “gutter guards” and “gutter screens” are sometimes used interchangeably, there are slight differences in their design and functionality:
Gutter guards are typically solid or perforated coverings that are installed over the gutters to prevent large debris, such as leaves, twigs, and branches, from entering the gutter system. They create a barrier that allows water to flow into the gutters while keeping out unwanted debris. Gutter guards are designed to minimize clogs and reduce the need for frequent gutter cleaning.
Gutter screens, on the other hand, are mesh-like coverings that are installed on top of the gutters to filter out debris while allowing water to pass through. The mesh screens are finer and are designed to capture smaller debris like leaves, pine needles, and seeds. Gutter screens provide protection against clogs while still allowing for proper water drainage.
Both gutter guards and gutter screens serve the common purpose of preventing clogs and maintaining the efficient functioning of gutters. They are effective in reducing the accumulation of debris, minimizing the risk of gutter overflow, and protecting the gutters and the overall integrity of the building.
Do gutter guards really work?
Yes, gutter guards & screens offer numerous benefits and are the most effective solution to keep debris out of your gutters. They are designed to fit over your gutters, preventing leaves, branches, and other debris from entering and clogging your gutters. This allows rainwater to flow freely through the gutters, preventing water damage to your home’s foundation, walls, and roof.
How do I know if I need gutter screens?
If you live in an area with trees or other vegetation, gutter screens are recommended to keep debris out of your gutters. If your gutters frequently become clogged with leaves and other debris, gutter screens can save you time and money on frequent cleaning and maintenance.
Can gutter guards prevent damage to my home?
Yes, gutter guards & screens can prevent water damage to your home by allowing rainwater to flow freely through your gutters. Without gutter screens, debris can accumulate in your gutters, causing water to overflow and damage your home’s foundation, walls, and roof.
Can I install gutter guards myself, or should I hire a professional?
While it is possible to install gutter guards or screens yourself, it’s advisable to hire a professional with experience in gutter and gutter guard installations. Knowing that your gutter guards or screens are installed correctly, and will provide optimal protection, gives you peace of mind that’s worth every penny.
At Kobett Metals, we highly recommend professional installation services for all of our gutter guards or screens, to ensure that they are installed properly and function effectively.
