Benefits to having 'Gutter guards'
When installing new gutters, most people don't realize the feature placements you can add to ensure a more efficient gutter system. Gutter guards are optional when new gutters are installed but are highly recommended. This can protect your home in the long run. The purpose of installing gutter guards is to prevent water from spilling onto the roof, which can cause leaks inside the house. Water pooling against the fascia board, which runs between the gutter and the side of the home, can cause the fascia to disintegrate and cause damage to the structure.
