Saving Yourself Time & Aggravation with Gutter Protection
by Jake Parker
As autumn approaches, it's a great time to consider adding a gutter protection system to your home. With the right product and quality installation, gutter protection systems can provide decades of maintenance free living: no more cleaning, no more clogging, no more hidden damage to your fascia boards.
There are literally hundreds of gutter protection systems on the market, so how does one choose which is right for you? First, make sure that the product you choose will actually meet your needs. Steel mesh, for instance, will do little to stop small debris like pine needles from accumulating in your gutters and, once a clog is established, the mesh makes cleaning them out even more difficult.
Reliability is also a consideration. Lightweight vinyl covers can certainly keep leaves out, but when winter arrives, such products can collapse under the weight of snow and ice. Also, check to see if a product is backed with a warranty and if it's application could void any existing warranty on your roof.
Another issue is aesthetics. Does the gutter protection system have a low profile or is it obtrusive? Even more important, does it come in a color that matches or compliments that of your existing gutters?
Finally, look at the price. When it comes to heavily advertised solutions, the cost can be $10, $15, $20, or even more per foot. On an average sized home, that can mean thousands of dollars, which can call into question the value of the product.
So what is the best solution? Having examined and tested many of the options, J & J recommends and installs Gutter Snap. This product has proven itself against all kinds of debris while standing strong against the elements. With a low profile, a 20-year warranty, and many color options, Gutter Snap is as appealing as it is effective. And the price is right, too.
Ordinarily, Gutter Snap is installed for $6.95 per foot, making it among the best values in home improvements. However, J & J is pleased to be able to offer our clients a limited-time offer: we'll come to your home, measure your gutters, match them with right color of Gutter Snap, and then install the product for just $5.95 per foot. Please note that because of our special pricing, a small additional fee will be required should the gutters need to be cleaned prior to installation. Still, you won't find a better price than this on a quality product installed and backed by a company you can trust.
Please feel free to call us with any questions you have or to arrange to have your home measured and see Gutter Snap for yourself.
