Fortify Your Home with a Leaf Guard System

Your gutters play a crucial role in protecting your home or business against the many risks posed by water damage. However, rain gutters can only protect your property if they are correctly draining moisture away from your walls and foundation.

Traditional gutter systems are held up by hangers that sit a few inches apart. The hangers provide a certain degree of support but leave the spaces in between either side, weak. An Alu-Rex system is different. It is built like a continuous hanger, so the eaves troughing is much more sturdy, secure, and reliable. It allows water to drain adequately and stops ice, snow, leaves, and other falling debris from clogging your gutters.

By installing a leaf guard system, you are giving your gutters the power to protect your building against moisture like never before.

Gutter Protection from Water Infiltration

While a bit of water in your property may not seem like a big issue, water infiltration poses many risks that should not be overlooked. Let’s explore a few!

Structural Damage

Small leaks and persistent water exposure can chip away at the integrity of your building’s structure. Water damage can affect your roofing system, and siding, all the way down to your basement and foundation. Water damage left unattended will only worsen and can cost you thousands of dollars to repair.

Wasting Energy

Excessive moisture in your building can cause your air conditioning units, heaters, and de-humidifiers to work on overdrive, wasting precious energy and costing you money.


Insect, animals, and pests are attracted to moist areas in your building. If water damage is happening without your knowledge, you’re bound to have a pest infestation before you realize it.

Mold Growth

Perhaps the most severe threat posed by water infiltration is the growth of dangerous mold and bacteria. These issues can be hard to identify and can have a detrimental impact on the health of those who live or work in your building. Mold and mildew can be especially harmful to those who struggle with respiratory illnesses.

The very best way to avoid these issues is to prevent water infiltration. By equipping your gutter system with a leaf guard, you are not only protecting your the structural integrity of your proeprty but also the safety of your loved ones and visitors.
