Gutters are vital because they help to channel rainwater, from the roof, away from your home. Gutters protect your home from water damage. The question is, “What protect gutters?” The answer is gutter guards.

Your gutters protect your home from damage. But, what protects your gutters? The answer is gutter guards.

The role of a gutter guard is to prevent fallen leaves, twigs and debris from going inside the gutters. Gutter guards come in various types such as PVC, aluminum, vinyl and copper ones. Many homeowners have realized the benefits of installing gutter guards. Here are some of them:


Open gutters are exposed to various substances like leaves and soil from the roof and the air. These substances accumulate in the gutter and later on lead to clogging which makes it difficult for water to flow smoothly.

If you want your gutter to continue performing its role, then you will have to clean it periodically or hire a gutter cleaning company to do it for you. Regardless of the option you choose, you’ll be spending time and money.

If you choose to install a gutter guard, you will not spend lesser time and money because the debris will be stuck on top of the guard.

Therefore, you won’t have to worry about regularly cleaning the gutter. The only thing you’ll need to do is get the debris off the gutter guard which is easier to do compared to cleaning a gutter full of leaves, soil, twigs, and seeds. You will only clean your gutters occasionally if you have a gutter guard.


When your gutters get clogged from ice, the water starts to pool around or flow into your home. This can damage your property and various areas of the house such as the roof, foundation, walls, and the basement. The excess water causes your gutter to have additional weight, and the gutter might give in.

Water damage is not a pretty sight, and you wouldn’t want to expose your home to it. If you want to avoid these problems, then you need to install a gutter guard. It will make your gutters stronger to withstand excess pressure even during the worst weather.


If you have a gutter without a gutter guard, then you will have to clean the gutter. This involves climbing on the roof using a ladder which is dangerous.

Anything can happen while you are cleaning your gutter. You could fall off the ladder, or get an electric shock if there are exposed electrical wiring. You could also damage your walls or roof in the cleaning process, or even the very gutter you are trying to clean.

A gutter guard will reduce your chances of injuring yourself and damaging your home because you will do significantly less cleaning.


When you have a gutter guard, water will not accumulate in your gutters. Stagnant water often attracts various pests and insects such as mosquitoes, spiders, bats, birds, and mice.

Some types of modern guards even prevent birds and rodents from getting on your roof. When your gutter does not have a lot of stagnant water, vermin and insects will not breed in it.


If you live in an area that experiences bushfires, then you need gutter guards to give you extra protection. Metal gutter guards would be the best choice for you. When there is a bushfire, the wind carries the embers, and they can go a long distance.

When the embers get in contact with dry materials like twigs and leaves that usually collect in the gutter, they can ignite and cause a fire. The fire can then spread to other areas.

A metal gutter guard will prevent the fire embers from reaching the debris. There will also be none or less debris if you have a gutter guard.


If you are looking to buy a home and you come across one that has gutter guards and another one that does not have them. Which one would you choose? It is automatic that the presence of gutter guard adds the value of your home.

If you want to sell a home without gutter guards, then you will have to reduce the price. No one wants to start working on a home. People want a ready house that they can move in and enjoy themselves.

Now that you know what you stand to gain by installing gutter guards, it’s time to learn what brands are available for your home:



shur flo logo

BBR Gutters Inc. is a proud Shur Flo dealer and installer. Shur Flo gutter guards feature a patented perf-flow filtration system for rainwater to drains through. The filtration prevents debris, leafs, twigs and even pine needles from entering the gutters. Then, over time, air circulation from above and below the leafs and debris dries them out and wind will blow them away.

Shur Flo has a low-profile that is almost invisible from the ground. The product fits snug into gutters without lifting shingles and won’t void roofing warranties. Shur Flo products feature a 20-year manufacturer warranty on top of our lifetime installation warranty.

ultra flo logo

We also install gutter guards from UltraFlo, the same manufacturer as Shur Flo. UltraFlo products offer many of the same benefits as Shur Flo. The difference is that UltraFlo is a “snap-in” installation and features a 10-year product warranty instead of the 20-year warranty from Shur Flo. However, if drainage issues or clogged gutters occur as a result of UltraFlo gutter guards we install, we will return to your home to replace or repair the damaged product.

micromesh logo

Micro Mesh Supreme gutter guards feature a heavy duty aluminum panel and stainless steel mesh micro mesh filter. This is arguably the most durable gutter guard we install. The construction is strong enough to withstand severe weather in Southeastern Wisconsin and still block out small debris and particles from the gutters. The convex design causes leafs and twigs to roll right off the panel.


Leafree is similar to Lead Slugger in terms of its appearance. The product is 100% aluminum with a lifetime guarantee. The construction is engineered to withstand heavy winds, prevent pests or rodents from entering the gutters and block out organic debris. The guard fits over the existing gutters on your home and blends in with the roof line. This means it is one of the more aesthetically pleasing products we install.
