Many home gutter systems feature underground drains that safely shuttle water away from the foundation of the home, preventing flooded basements, mold and mildew growth and damaged foundations. Just like gutters, however, these underground drainage systems can become blocked with leaves and debris. You can protect your underground drains with gutter guards!
The Problem With Underground Drain Clogs
Clogs in an underground drainage system can cause major problems. Blocked pipes can cause flooding in your yard, or even — as the drainage pipes no longer serve their purpose of whisking water away — in your basement. Freshly cleaned gutters can overflow and pour water next to your home because the water no longer has a place to go. Clogged pipes can even burst and be permanently damaged. Just like gutters, if drainage pipes aren’t protected, they have to be periodically cleaned to prevent clogging. Should underground drainage pipes clog, they likely will require a professional cleaning or, if the clog or damage is severe enough, you will have to dig up your drainage system to address the clogged pipe.
How To Protect Your Drainage Pipes
The best way to protect your underground drainage pipes from clogs is by protecting your gutters! When your gutters aren’t protected from leaves and debris, the debris that collects within the gutters is swept away with the rainwater into your drainage pipes. By installing gutter guards on your gutters, you can keep leaves and debris from entering your drainage pipes and causing clogs. Gutter guards provide a simple fix for what could potentially be a major problem!
The SafeGuard Difference
At The Gutterman of TN, we install SafeGuard Gutter Guards because we believe there’s no better way to protect your gutters and drainage pipes from leaves and debris. SafeGuard Gutter Guards are made from aluminum framing outfitted with a fine, stainless steel micro mesh. The micro mesh does a superior job of keeping debris out, versus other gutter guard systems. The micro mesh allows water to enter the gutters and effectively flow through the gutter system. At the same time, the mesh keeps out even the finest of particles so that any sort of debris washes safely over the mesh. That means unlike other gutter guards, SafeGuard Gutter Guards won’t need to be periodically cleaned, and they won’t repel rainwater during extra light or extra heavy rains like reverse-curve gutter guards can.
On top of that, SafeGuard Gutter Guards are installed with heavy duty hangers, so they’ll stay firmly in place for years to come. They come in a variety of colors and can be installed over your existing gutters or as part of a complete gutter system.
