When you’re looking for a solution to leaves and other debris that clogs your gutters, there are a few important considerations. The gutter product should effectively collect rainwater from the roof and guide it away from the home’s exterior. Clogged gutters lead to water buildup and overflow. This can cause water damage to the wood fascia board behind the gutters, as well as the foundation of the home.
Not only does the gutter product need to effectively keep leaves out and collect water, but it also needs to be durable. Homes in Northeast Ohio deal with a wide variety of weather conditions throughout the year. Wind, rain, snow, and ice all cause problems for the gutters and roof. Even if your gutter protection product keeps leaves out, it needs to be able to handle these severe weather conditions.

There are a few reasons to replace your old roof. One of the most common reasons is that the shingles are getting old. Old shingles may stop spreading copper granules that help fight algae formation. If you have started seeing black algae stains on your shingles, this could be a sign of age. Algae itself is not harmful to the roof, but it’s unsightly and may suggest that the shingles are losing effectiveness. Old shingles are more susceptible to weather conditions like high winds. Missing shingles after a storm is a possible sign that the roof needs replaced.
When you replace your roof, you shouldn’t have to worry about these types of problems for years. The best way to make sure you receive proper roof protection is to find a reliable contractor. Trusted roofing contractors will use quality materials and perform a proper installation.

Are you getting ready to replace your old gutters? If your gutters are beginning to fail, or if you’re tired of the occasional cleaning that they require, then a gutter protection product could be the solution. Gutter protection products can be add-on gutter guards or complete, replacement gutter systems. Add-on products include screens, hoods, and even filters that go inside the open gutter. Complete leaf-free systems generally have a curved hood design and contain either one piece of material or two separate pieces.
Your gutter protection product should collect rainwater while keeping leaves out. When researching gutter protection products, there are multiple factors to consider. These factors include the visual appeal, design, effectiveness, and durability of the product. One aspect to consider is the warranty protection that comes with the product. Warranty exclusions can reveal important information about the quality of the product.
