Feazel has covered 11 gutter cleaning tips that will help you prepare your rain gutters for winter. This blog entry is about preventing gutter maintenance with proactive measures using gutter guards. Who wants to perform gutter maintenance at least twice a year anyway? It is a labor-intensive process that we could all do without. Plus, in addition to the time you would have to commit to doing the work, you would need to spend money on materials. If you don't have the time, you would need to find a gutter contractor you can trust to do the work for you - more time and money. The solution? Gutter guards. Gutter guards will reduce all that gutter maintenance while protecting your rain gutters from clogging, backing up and causing more costly repairs down the road.

The extreme exposure to nature we face in the Midwest causes sealant failures while snow and ice loosen fasteners. These problems should be fixed immediately to prevent more major (and costly) repairs to your roof or foundation.

Preventing Gutter Maintenance with Proactive Measures

Gutter systems require frequent gutter maintenance to insure optimal protection for your home. That means inspecting, cleaning and clearing your gutters every spring and fall. However, you can all but avoid this twice-a-year task (at minimum) by investing in a very affordable, aesthetically pleasing gutter guard system. By installing a gutter guard system, you make sure your gutters are free from debris, leaves, granules from shingles and birds’ nests without having to perform the gutter maintenance you normally would.

How Do Gutter Guards Work?

Feazel offers Leaf Relief to solve gutter maintenance issues. The patented Aluma-Perf Technology™ of Leaf Relief traps the smallest debris, allowing water to flow freely. Debris is then lifted off gutters by a gentle breeze.

Leaf Relief mounts securely to the gutter system, resisting damage from high winds and heavy snow and ice. Additionally, the tough aluminum construction of Leaf Relief is indelible and resists damage from bugs, squirrels, raccoons and birds.

The product’s unique design ends routine gutter cleaning altogether. This lowers maintenance costs and you won’t have to take any more dangerous trips up the ladder. Leaf Relief is also thin and hidden. Unlike bulk competitor offerings, you won’t see Leaf Relief from the ground, enhancing your home’s curb appeal. Independent testing confirmed Leaf Relief works better than other gutter systems on the market.
