Gutter Guards Promote Street Appeal

There are many gutter protection products on the market. But you want one which is functional and looks great. Our Gutter Guards is almost invisible on your roof and keeps your roof clean so it always looks good from the street!

When shopping for Gutter Guards Here are some key factors to look for!

Look for a system that mounts directly to the lip of the gutter and attach under the second row of shingles.  This arrangement allows the gutter cap to follow the contour of the roof and blend in with the roof line.  Some systems will mount on the lip of the gutter but attach under the first row of shingles making them easier to see from the ground. With first row shingle mount gutter protectors, gutters need to be lowered and more of the product is visible from the ground.  This type of guards also doesn’t allow for expansion and contraction and after a year or so, the panels and ruin the aesthetics of your roof.

For aesthetics, choosing the right colour gutter guard is critical for curb appeal.  Homeowners should choose a colour that best matches the color of the roof.  Many homeowners make the mistake of matching it to the color of the gutters not realizing how much it contrasts with the roof with a two-tone saddle shoe look. To combat this, make sure you choose the colour that matches the roof as the effect is not very appealing. If you match your gutter guard to the color of the roof, it should blend in with the roof line and appear almost invisible.

Keep in mind that you don’t have to sacrifice the effectiveness of your gutter guards for esthetics. Your gutter protection can work great and not be noticeable. For more information on what you should look for in gutter protection, contact us.
