Which Gutter Guards Are Best?

Fall is beautiful, but if your gutters aren’t protected, this time of year can cause trouble for the exterior of your home. Gutters are more prone to issues in the fall because of falling leaves, pine needles, small twigs and branches.

When these things fall off trees and into your gutters, they increase the risk of clogs.

Installing gutter guards is a great way to protect your gutters. Timely repair and maintenance are also crucial for keeping your gutters working effectively for as long as possible.

Contact Builders Installed Products Albany to learn more about how you can protect your gutters and your home.

Understanding Gutter Guards

Gutter guards are protective covers placed over gutters to prevent debris buildup. They help maintain proper water flow and prevent clogs. There are many different options from trustworthy brands when it comes to gutter guards.

The “best” gutter guard depends on your unique home and location. At Builders Installed Products Albany, our experts install highly recommended Spectra and Evelyn’s Leaf Solution products.

Spectra Gutter Covers

Spectra gutter covers are made of durable aluminum or vinyl. They’re designed with small perforations or mesh that allow water in while keeping debris out. Spectra gutter covers effectively keep your gutters clean and free of clogs.

The benefits of Spectra gutter covers include:

  • They’re long-lasting.
  • They require little maintenance.
  • They’re effective in keeping out leaves, twigs and other debris.
  • They’re available in various colors to match your home’s exterior.

Spectra Gutter Systems offers a range of innovative gutter products to help you choose one that best fits your needs. Our trained technicians can then expertly install your new Spectra gutter guards.

Evelyn’s Leaf Solution Gutter Covers

Evelyn’s Leaf Solution gutter covers utilize a micromesh design to block even the smallest debris. They’re constructed from high-quality stainless steel or aluminum and use their patented “hemming” process, which mechanically bonds the micromesh securely into the aluminum body.

This strong connection means these gutter guards won’t come apart even after years of weathering.

The benefits of Evelyn’s Leaf Solution gutter covers include:

  • The smooth aluminum body prevents debris from sticking to the surface of the gutter covers.
  • They’re lightweight yet strong.
  • They’re highly effective in preventing clogs and maintaining gutter functionality.
  • They’re suitable for areas with heavy foliage or pine needles.
  • They offer a lifetime warranty for peace of mind.

These gutter covers help protect your gutters from leaves, twigs, rodents, insects, pollen, shingle debris and more. The professionals at Builders Installed Products Albany have the expertise required to install Evelyn’s Leaf Solution products properly.
