Gutters and gutter guards are the unsung heroes of your home. If you are considering selling your home, be sure to factor the state of your gutters into your overall home value.
Homeowners and lenders alike know that the value of gutters cannot be overstated. Some lenders might even deny loans on properties without functional gutters. The primary purpose of this important home addition is to carry water away from the home. This prevents damage to your foundation and potential water damage to your roof.
While potential buyers now expect to see quality gutters, they are also considering future maintenance. If you live in an area prone to storms, then you are well aware of the leaves, sticks, and various other debris that can build up in gutters in the aftermath. If left to accumulate, you risk future water damage and unsightly plant growth from seed debris.
Few buyers want to spend their weekends on the daunting task of cleaning out their gutters. To eliminate this burden, you need to install gutter guards. Gutter guards are screens that sit on top of your gutters with holes small enough to allow water in, but keep waste out.
Installing gutter guards is simple, but an effective investment. Our preferred brand of gutter guards, Leaf Solution, even comes with a 20-year warranty. They also come in various sizes and colors that you can match to your outdoor trim to continue boosting your curb appeal.
