Gutter guards are gutter screens or covers that help prevent debris from entering your rain gutters. They will help reduce the amount of gutter cleaning that is necessary and help save you money and time in the long-term.
The Benefits of Gutter Guards
Since gutter guards help prevent gutters from clogging up with debris, pine needles, leaves, etc., rainwater will flow without blockage or overflow. Overflowing gutters are dangerous because this can lead to water around your foundation, doors, windows, etc. which may cause mold and mildew, wood rot, insects and additional damage, like unsightly stains on the exterior of your home.
When moisture ridden leaves and debris sit in your gutters, it increases the likelihood of rust and/or corrosion forming in your gutters. With the help of gutter guards, leaves, pine needles and other debris won’t accumulate and therefore will help extend the life of your gutters.
Gutter guards minimize the amount of stagnant water sitting in your gutters, making them a less attractive breeding ground for vermin and insects. Additionally, gutter guards work as a physical barrier to birds, rodents, possums, etc. Without gutter guards it is much easier for them to navigate their way behind the fascia boards and into the roof space of your home.
Gutter guards prevent debris, pine needles and leaves from accumulating in your gutters and clogging up the system. Without gutter guards, you will need to clean your gutters or have them cleaned by a professional. So, with gutter guards you save time and money. Gutter guards still need some maintenance, but it reduces the times your gutters need to be cleaned.

Why are Our Gutters Better?
We use premium material. Most aluminum gutters have an average thickness between .019 and .027 gauge. Ours are .027 gauge. Often contractors, builders and other gutter companies use thinner gutters because they are more cost effective for them but, unfortunately this means that they are less desirable for you. These cheaper gutters will warp, dent and sag more readily over time. We know you do not want a flimsy gutter system that will be prone to leaks and issues. At CS Collins Seamless Gutters, we only install premium grade .027 gauged aluminum gutters that are more durable and longer lasting. We take pride in our work and want to provide you with the best possible product. We inspect all of our work and make sure you are satisfied before we leave your property.
