Why Do Homeowners Need Leaf Protection? When your gutters are clogged, water is no longer being directed away from your home. One of the biggest concerns resulting from clogged gutters is that water will pool at the foundation of your home. Over time, this can weaken your foundation, causing cracks that will widen in the winter months when water freezes and expands. Other concerns include: water leaking through the roof, water causing exposed fascia board to rot, and water getting behind siding, causing separation and water damage. So although many people may not give thought to the condition of their gutters, neglect and disrepair of gutter systems can lead to very dangerous problems and costly repairs. Alloy Gutter Company proudly carries three types of leaf protection to prevent all of the above listed problems, as well as many others! We are also able to install other types of leaf protection upon request - we have simply decided to carry these products because we find them to be the most cost effective as well as efficient in their protection from leaves and debris.
