As much as the gutter installation is essential, gutter protection is an equally significant aspect of every home. Gutter protection ensures that twigs, leaves, nests, birds, and insects do not clog your gutters so that there is a free rainwater flow from the downspout down to the designated destination.
As a result, your walls, basement, foundation, and lawns are spared rainwater damage. Your home’s surroundings will also be safe since stagnant water will be non-existent. So mosquitoes, mold, and mildew will not have favorable conditions to thrive. When gutters are clogged and water cannot flow, it tends to pour over. More often than not, it will overflow, bearing leaves, feathers, and other debris which are deposited around your home, making it dirty and sometimes giving a foul smell rendering your home surroundings unhygienic.
