Gutter Guards

Prevent debris | Lower your maintenance

Installing aluminum gutter guards is the easy, smart solution for your gutter system.
Roofs Restored uses aluminum gutter guards from Senox, the leading gutter manufacturer in the southeast United States. Without guards, biomass can accumulate from leaves and other debris adding unnecessary weight to your gutter mounting system and hold moisture which can lead to early corrosion.

Questions & Claims

Gutter guards prevent a majority of debris (mostly fallen leaves) from entering and clogging up your gutters: preventing adequate water diversion from your roof.

Let’s remember the purpose of a gutter guard: to prevent biomatter buildup in your gutters. The amount of weight from wet, decomposing biomatter build-up in your gutters far exceeds the weight of a thin piece of aluminum mesh. Regardless, we place gutter mounting brackets every 18 inches to more equally distribute weight along the sides of your roof structure. Most gutter installers use 4 foot spacing.

Gutters are recommended to be cleaned out twice a year (four times a year if you have ample tree coverage over your home). With gutter guards, this can be reduced to only once a year – and brushing any sitting leaves off the top is WAY easier than scooping debris out of your gutters.

Some people claim gutter guards trap debris in them and cause an external build-up above the gutter that causes an eye soar for the homeowner. Debris will undoubtedly get caught in your guards (unless you install our LeafFree solution), but nature takes care of the majority of that by blowing loose leaves out of place and off your gutter system. But in fairness, again we stress that gutter guards are not maintenance-free; they are less maintenance.
