The point of a gutter guard is to keep your gutters clean from leaves and debris so that rainwater can flow freely off your roof and away from your house. But do gutter guards actually do more harm than good? Do gutter guards cause leaks

When gutter guards are well designed and correctly installed, they should not cause any harm. Unfortunately, other gutter guard installation companies often take shortcuts or sell gutter guards that don’t work well, which can cause leaks and damage.

Damage Caused by Poorly Designed Gutter Guards

Other gutter guard installation companies usually offer hood-type systems or one-piece reverse curve systems. 

Hood-type systems

filter vs. hood

Hood-type systems are good at keeping debris out of your gutters, but unfortunately, they also block a lot of the water from going into your gutters. Instead, the water runs off the top of the hood and onto the ground. Because hood-type systems block proper water flow into the gutter, the water is not properly channeled away from your home and can cause flooding and leaks. 

One-piece reverse curve systems

One-piece reverse curve systems are somewhat better at allowing water flow, but they clog easily with debris. Clogged gutters can cause leaks and damage. 

HomeCraft Gutter Guards are a cut above the competition. Thanks to our raised screen technology, water flows unimpeded and debris is blown away by the wind.

Damage Caused by Installation

Another problem with other gutter guards is the installation process. Many gutter guards require you to lift up the shingles on your roof to install. Some even have to be nailed into place through your roof and shingles.

By lifting the shingles, they can become weakened, moved out of place, or damaged, which may lead to leaks. Installing gutter guards that impact the roof and shingles may also not be covered by your home insurance. 

HomeCraft Gutter Guards are non-invasive. They do not have to be fitted up under the shingles or nailed down. Our professional installation process will ensure that your gutters are secure, clear of debris, and that your gutter guards are perfectly fitted to the gutters.
