Most traditional homes were built with open gutters, meaning there was no cover over the top of them to prevent leaves, pine needles, or other debris from entering the gutter. This is how most clogging problems occur, as the roof water carries debris into the open gutter and causes it to clog and overflow.
To solve this problem, AquaGuard utilizes the GutterShutter™ System, patented gutter covers that completely eliminate clogs caused by debris.
What is the GutterShutter™ System?
The GutterShutter™ System is AquaGuard’s patented all-in-one gutter cover system. Gutter covers come in many different styles, but they are all designed with a cover over the top with the sole purpose of preventing leaves and other debris from entering your gutters.
Benefits of Gutter Covers:
Here are a few benefits to investing in quality gutter covers:
1. Prevents Clogged Gutters
Without gutter tops to protect your gutters, leaves and debris can cause your gutters to clog. Clogged gutters are not only a hassle, but can create opportunities for water damage to wreak havoc on your home’s foundation.
2. Protects Against Foundation Damage
With gutters that properly drain water away from your home, your foundation is less likely to be negatively impacted by the effects of heavy rain. When gutters are clogged and improperly draining, they can cause water to pool around your foundation. This excess water creates massive amounts of pressure that can either cause foundation cracks or force water through existing cracks and into your basement or crawl space.
3. Less Maintenance
Gutter systems need maintenance twice a year - once in the springtime and once in the fall when the leaves have fallen. However, if gutter guards have been installed, yearly cleanings aren't as necessary.
4. Save Time and Money
The true cost of a mediocre gutter system comes in two forms: the time and danger of doing it yourself, or the cost you pay to have someone do it for you. Investing in a quality gutter system means less work and less expenses for you. Our gutter protection system repels debris and properly manages and drains roof water away from your home to protect it from water damage.
5. Stops Gutters From Rusting
When wet debris gets inside rust-prone gutters, the troughs are more likely to rust. Gutter guards prevent the chance that any debris will make it inside your gutters.
How Does the GutterShutter™ System Work?
Unlike traditional gutter covers, the GutterShutter™ system is completely covered and sealed with no vertical openings. This means that debris can’t congest your gutters by blocking filters and screens, eliminating the need for gutter cleaning.
With the physical principles of water tension in mind, a liquid adhesion process captures roof water and properly manages roof run-off.
