As the seasons change, gutter maintenance becomes more and more crucial. As of right now, there is a lot of hype around the installation of various gutter guards. However, many people are held back because of the costs, and can be skeptical of the popularity surrounding gutter guards. Is GutterBrush worth it? Yes, it is, and here are five reasons why.


  • Safety

  • Many hazards arise when cleaning gutters. People can face many accidents from things like falling off of a ladder, getting shocked by an electric circuit, or even damaging walls and the gutters, too. There is not only a chance of getting injured physically, but there is also an extremely high chance of causing damage to the walls as well. Installing GutterBrush would not only reduce your chances of causing damage to your home, it would also reduce your chances of causing a physical injury.


  • Environmental Issues

  • The buildup of leaves and twigs in the gutters allows for molds to form and can create spores. Pests can also find homes within the buildup in the gutters. Damage can be seen, and often times allergies can be caused, affecting the residents of the home. The molds and spores can also start deteriorating the actual home itself. It’s best to try to avoid that as much as you can, which is another reason why installing GutterBrush is so important.


  • Prevent Damage

  • Buildup of ice and gutters that are clogged can damage your house and overflow your property. Extra weight from the water build up can also be a reason behind gutter damage, aside from the damage it already will cause to the foundation of your home. Your property can erode because of overflow due to build up, and in time there can be significant damage to your walls and roof. Installing GutterBrush will protect you against these problems while also making the gutters of your home stronger. They will be strong enough to go through anything the weather might have in store.


  • Good choice financially

  • The GutterBrush simple Leaf Guard system is very affordable and it can prevent you from spending excess money on having your gutters cleaned multiple times a year. In the long-run, it will be a wiser decision in terms of finances. It will prevent damage to your home, which means that there will be less damage to fix and spend money on.


  • Home Value Will Be Improved

  • According to current trends, gutter guards will become more popular and become more regular in homes. Selling houses that do not have gutter guards will become harder, and there may be a possibility that the price of the house will be reduced. Very few people who are buying houses want to buy a house that requires work because they want to move in immediately and not deal with the hassle of renovations. You can decide to leave GutterBrush in the gutter when you sell your house as a selling point to potential buyers. Or, you can take them with you and easily install them into your new house’s gutters.
