Do Foam Gutter Guards Actually Work?

When it comes to foam gutter guards, the idea seems to work in concept. After all, you’re stuffing your gutters with foam so there’s no room for debris to get in, all the while water should pass through easily. Sadly, it’s not quite that simple.

When you install gutter guards, the goal is to cross gutter cleaning off your to-do list for good. With foam gutter guards, that simply isn’t the case. In fact, most foam guard manufacturers still recommend getting your gutters cleaned every six months. 

Keep reading to learn more about how foam gutter guards simply don’t stack up.

Fails To Keep Out Debris

Because foam guards don’t actually seal your gutter system, you’ll still see debris build up. This will lead to more clogs and an even more difficult time cleaning your gutters as you will need to remove the guard each time. These types of gutter guards are hardly what you’d call “maintenance-free.”

Weak Warranty, If Any At All

With brush style gutter guards, you won’t have any warranty to back your purchase, and it’s no wonder. These gutter guards are hardly a long-term investment. While they may be cheap upfront, the old adage of “you get what you pay for” certainly applies here.

DIY Installation

While there’s value in DIY projects, some jobs are better left to the professionals. Not only is the margin for installation error greater when DIY installing foam gutter guards, you put yourself at risk for injury. Put your ladder back in the garage where it belongs and leave gutter guard installation to the pros.

GutterDome — Your Permanent Solution To Gutter Cleaning

Unlike foam gutter guards, GutterDome’s anodized aluminum frame ensures long-lasting protection. Its unique micro mesh design blocks debris as small as .02 inches and allows water to flow through freely.
