Hudson, Ohio (PRWEB) July 27, 2012
The stifling summer heat and lack of rain might have homeowners ignoring their gutters now, but fall cleanup is still waiting just around the corner. LeafFilter™ North, Inc., the nation’s leading gutter protection company, has released the 2012 Gutter Guard Buyer’s Guide™ to assist consumers when outfitting their roof and gutters against clogs. The 22-page document is a resource for consumers looking to research and understand the benefits and drawbacks of gutter protection systems.
LeafFilter™ produced the 2012 Gutter Guard Buyer’s Guide™ to help consumers make a well-informed decision when deciding to protect their investment. Every home is different, so it’s important for the homeowner to do their homework before deciding which type of gutter protection system is right. There are many gutter guard options on the market, so it becomes vital for the homeowner to grasp the overall benefits or flaws of each gutter protection system.
The 2012 Gutter Guard Buyer’s Guide™ covers a wide array of topics, including common causes of clogged gutters, homeowner installed versus professionally installed systems, and the pros and cons of the various types of gutter protection.
Many homeowners don’t realize what purpose gutters serve or why it becomes important to ensure water is properly diverted away from the home. The LeafFilter™ 2012 Gutter Guard Buyer’s Guide™ breaks down exactly why gutters are such an essential part of any safe and secure home. It’s important to understand the damage clogged gutters and overflowing water can cause before making a decision about which gutter protection system is right.
After explaining exactly what purpose the gutter system serves, the LeafFilter™ 2012 Gutter Guard Buyer’s Guide™ illustrates exactly how gutters become clogged with debris. Once a backup occurs, the gutter system completely fails and can cause serious destruction to the home. Just because a homeowner is worried about keeping their home and family safe doesn’t mean any gutter protection on the market can get the job done. Some gutter protection systems still have holes or openings that allow debris to get into the gutters, which can lead to clogs.
One of the most costly errors made when deciding to buy gutter protection could possibly harm the integrity of the roof and therefore void the warranty. There are a large number of gutter protection companies that might possibly install a guard under the shingles. Installing anything that might alter the integrity of the roof or shingles will most definitely void the roof warranty.
The LeafFilter™ 2012 Gutter Guard Buyer’s Guide™ also goes on to describe the many different types of gutter guards. The 2012 guide covers everything ranging from cheap homeowner-installed systems to professionally-installed micromesh protection that allows nothing but water into the gutters.
