You don’t want to wear brightly patterned socks with formal wear. You’re against wearing clashing suspenders with your jeans. Why would you choose a home product that doesn’t fit your house? When you’re purchasing gutter guards, your first question is, “Will they work?” However, often the second question is, “Will they look good on my house?” Your gutter protection doesn’t need to look ugly. In fact, it can add to the beauty and value of your home.
Gutter Guards Can Match Your House
If you’re looking for a gutter guard, look for a product that’s designed to suit your home. Some gutter guards come in white or metallic shades, or they’re gutter inserts that are made out of foam. Other gutter guards were designed with your home in mind. For example, Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet is a ribbed panel that attaches over the top of your gutters but looks like a complement to your existing roofing. It comes in a variety of colors so that you can guarantee a good match. These colors include:
- Black Onyx
- Pale Gray
Your gutter guard shouldn’t stick out: it should blend in and match your house.
Keeping Your Gutter Guards Tidy
The look of your gutter guard depends on the gutter cover or gutter guard product that you choose. If you choose a wire mesh product that gets clogged over time, you’ll notice branches and leaves that begin to stick out of your gutter guard. You’ll need to conduct maintenance on your gutter guard to make sure that it stays tidy and unclogged. Foam inserts aren’t as visible, but if debris piles up on top of the insert, you will need to clean it so that it look neat. When you’re looking for gutter guards and covers, look for products that don’t clog so that you won’t need to clean your gutters regularly.
One of the most attractive choices of gutter guards is a gutter guard that is an extension of your roof. Surface tension gutter guards sit on top of your regular gutters and allow water to run from the roof and slip into your gutters. These gutter guards look like an extension of the roof line rather than an addition into or on top of the gutter.
Gutter Guards Keep Your House Looking Beautiful
Gutter guards not only look good on your house, they keep your house looking beautiful as well. Without gutter guards, gutters clog, warp, and sag, making an otherwise even roof line look unkempt. Clogged gutters also lead to home maintenance problems. For instance, your gutters can back up with water or ice that moves back onto the roof, causing the roof to deteriorate. Water that builds up and cascades over the side of the gutter can damage your siding and lead to moss and mold problems. An overabundance of water on the ground also leads to foundation issues, such as cracks and shifting foundations. Keeping your gutters clean keeps your home beautiful.
