What Are Gutter Guards?

Gutter guards block debris and leaves from entering your gutter and creating blockages. These guards are designed to allow water to filter down into your gutter so it can flow away from your home, as it’s supposed to. At Bauer Specialty, we use the MicroGuard system. This system utilizes a cover that goes over your gutter that’s full of micro-perforations that are small enough to ensure pine needles, leaves, and other debris can’t enter the gutter. The perforations allow water to get through and drain down to the ground as it’s supposed to.

Do I Need Gutter Guards?

If you’ve ever had your gutters become blocked or if you want to reduce how often you have to clean your gutters, gutter guards are a great option. Gutter guards are especially recommended for homes surrounded by lots of trees that are susceptible to debris build-up in their gutters. 

When gutters become blocked and can’t function properly, the diverted water can accumulate on your roof, inside your siding, and it can cause a lot of damage if left unchecked. Protecting your gutters with MicroGuard isn’t just a way to reduce how often you clean your gutters; it will also extend the longevity of your home and reduce the need for costly repairs due to water damage.

Installing Gutter Guards

Gutter Guard installation is quick and easy when done by a professional. The guards come in multiple configuration styles so they can fit almost any gutter system. Because the guards are placed on the upper edges of your gutter, they won’t be visible from the ground. The MicroGuard system also doesn’t require any roof shingle penetration for installation, so it won’t interfere with your roof’s warranty. 

A major benefit of the MicroGuard Gutter Guards is that they can be installed on the gutters you already have, rather than having to buy a whole new gutter system. This makes MicroGuard a cost-effective gutter protection method. You can choose to outfit your entire gutter system with MicroGuard or just use it in sections that are highly susceptible to debris. These gutter guards are crafted from aluminum, so they won’t cause undue stress on your gutters from adding weight.
