The  Advantages of Installing Gutter Guards

Appropriately installed gutters can be an excellent way to protect the roof, walls and the foundation of your house from water and debris, thereby saving you the cost of roof and wall repairs. However, while gutters can save your house from potential water damage, there are also certain disadvantages of installing gutters. One of the biggest problems with gutters is that it is necessary to clean them every year for them to function properly. Especially after the fall season, when the gutters are filled with leaves, pine tiny pine needles and other garbage, it can be a strenuous task to clean them. To avoid these hassles, it is wise to use guards, which can efficiently prevent leaves and other debris from entering the gutter, and only allow the flow of clean water into it.
Gutter guards are available in a wide range of styles such as polyurethane foam guards, surface area tension systems and cross systems. All of these styles use vinyl or steel mesh to keep leaves and other garbage out of the gutters. However, the only thing that you need to take care of is the size of the fine mesh used in the gutter guard that considerably affects the amount of dirt that can get into the gutter.
 
Let us discuss in brief the various advantages of using a gutter guard:
With gutter guards, your gutters can be cleaned more easily and, less frequently, which in turn saves you the risk of physical injury by getting to the top of your house roof to clean your gutters.
Certain gutter troughs can be highly prone to rusting. As a result, they can rust and corrode in a short time due to wet debris accumulating in them. Gutter guards are excellent solutions to prevent gutter troughs from rusting before time.
During the winter, there are chances that accumulated water in the gutter freezes and leaks in your home, thereby causing considerable water damages to the roofs and walls. Guards protect your home from possible water damages by preventing freezing.
If you are residing in areas that are prone to bushfire, guards provide efficient fire protection to your house. This is because guards keep the gutters devoid of accumulated debris that can potentially catch fire from suspended embers.
 
Despite all these advantages of using gutter guards, there are also certain disadvantages that need to be considered:
Certain types of the guards are installed flat over the gutters. Since it is easy for things to settle down and pile up on a flat surface, these types of guards can sometimes result in wet debris getting stuck in their holes. This can block water from getting inside the gutters leading to water damages to your house.
Tiny pines and fir needles can easily get into the holes of flat gutter guards, which can be a challenge to clean.
In some cases, parts of flat guards can get covered under roof shingles, where debris can accumulate. During wet seasons, water from these piled up garbage can cause damage to the shingles.

What to do when you have a leaking roof?
The most challenging thing you will face when repairing your roof is to identify the source of the leaks. Moreover, you need to learn to look for the cause of the problem and its source rather than focus on repairing the visible evidence. Remember the cause of the roofing leak is more troublesome than the leak itself. If the cause is not fixed then the problem will continue to bother you. Unfortunately, many people only fix the leak, leaving the cause to cause more damage. 
So, where do you begin to search for leaks or the problems that cause them? These problems are more likely to be found on top of the roof. When there is a leak, chances are you are having problems in one of the following locations. The joins on the roof are to be checked- this can be where the roof meets the chimney, where the roof meets the wall, or where two nearby peaks create a valley between them. Anywhere where there is a join on your roof, will be the most likely the source of the leak.


These locations are not the only the cause of the leaks. In some cases if you have shingles or tiles missing, skylights, flashings on your roof, or vents, and these are where leaks could occur. So check out these possible locations as well. Now if you check for leaks from the inside, check the attic first. Remember that the main cause of the leak is not always where the drips that are finding their way to your ceiling. Water can come in to the attic in one area and then travel along roof timbers or ceiling sheets to an adjacent area where the water pools and then leaks in to the room underneath. In order to find the source of the leak you need to work in the attic during broad daylight then look for spaces where the sun's rays are shining in. If you can't find the sunlight, ask someone to spray the roof with water while you are looking for the spot where the water comes in.
It seems like a cliché but prevention is always better than cure and the same goes for roofing leaks. If you are able to prevent them from the start then it will be much less of an expense when it comes to repairing your roof. In order to prevent these leaks you need to perform routine inspections as well as maintenance on your roof. Once there are leaks, immediate action is recommended. The faster the repairs are made the less damage is left behind due to the leaks. If you think you can't do the repair for yourself, then you should consider hiring professionals as soon as you can to limit the brunt of the damage and to extend the life of your roof.
