There are plenty of small actions you can take to simplify your house pest control. The cold months have a way of showing humans how vulnerable they really are to the impact of Mother Nature. Covering the gutters on your home is a simple, one-time task capable of safeguarding your property from insects and other pests. Coverings go a long way to reducing water problems around your home. They can also help physically block wildlife from finding a way indoors.
Consider the value you get right away from high-quality gutter protection, like LeafProof®:
• Gutter protection prevents clogging from leaves and debris.
Your gutters play an important role in keeping the roof and foundation of your home in good condition. Unfortunately, a clogged gutter can do more harm than good. The patented LeafProof® system offers superior protection against leaves, twigs and other materials causing blockages. Ants and roaches thrive in these environments, and infestations easily move indoors. Similarly, the cover design helps keep rats, squirrels, birds and other creatures from entering your gutters – a position that animals can use to gain entry to your home.
• Prevent rook leaks with a gutter protection system that doesn’t anchor into the roof decking.
Some gutter protection devices need to be screwed or nailed into the roof decking. As small as they are, these holes can introduce big problems unless they have proper seals and maintenance each year. LeafProof® gutter protection slides under the first row of shingles and attaches to the leading edge or lip of the gutter preserving the integrity of your roof. Your home won’t experience the pesky leaks that draw the attention of insects or have the potential to cause major damage.
• Quickly remove water from the roof with help from specially designed covers.
Without a cover, rain often flows over the edge of your roof before going into the gutter. This introduces the possibility that water will get under roofing materials and lead to moisture problems. LeafProof’s® special s-bend design draws water away from the roof and then drains it into the gutters. This keeps your roof free from water issues that attract pests and lead to mold problems.
• Preserve the aesthetics of your home while adding the extra protection you need.
Go to any home improvement store, and you’re sure to find unsightly and outdated gutter covers no one would be proud to display on their home. These products – and their questionable performance – are responsible for convincing many homeowners to ignore one of the simplest and most effective ways of keeping pests and wildlife out of your home over the winter. We’re confident LeafProof® can change your mind. With a pleasing design and the ability to keep your gutters free and clear of pest problems, these innovative covers are well worth the investment.
