The Brothers have done extensive research on the best products and systems that the gutter industry has to offer. And adding them to your system is without a doubt a key feature. Let’s get to a clear explanation as to what a guard is and why it’s beneficial.
What Is A Gutter Guard?
When it comes to providing a solution that will keep your gutters free of:
- Leaves – Pine needles, helicopter pods, flowers, and more
- Debris – Shingle grit, lichens, shade-born growth.
- Small Animals – Squirrels, snakes, birds, and more
- Pests – Mosquitos, spiders, and other insects.
Gutter Guards are often the best and most practical option to keeping them clean. They are commonly known as leaf guards. The Brothers that just do Gutters have been installing them since 2005.

Why Do I Need A Leaf Guard?
Leaf protection is important in maintaining a system that continues to work properly by preventing clogs. Gutter guard installation also significantly decreases the maintenance required on your gutter system. More so, with the right guard, it will eliminate most of your interior gutter cleanings.
Maintaining them without a guard requires cleaning both your gutters and downspouts at least twice a year. This will allow your entire system to handle its highest capacity of rainfall. This also reduces the risk of overflow, rotted fascia, mildew, deterioration of foundation, landscape erosion and other damage to your property. However, cleaning them has to be seasonally timed right and done more frequently in certain areas.
The alternative option to cleaning gutters at least two times a year, is installing gutter guards. Clients are often concerned by the initial cost. Unless you clean them yourself, the minimum maintenance costs can often be much higher within just two-three years. The value of eliminating interior cleanings that comes with having covered gutters is often worth any additional up-front costs to our clients and the long-term protection of their home.
On top of having leafless gutters, gutter guards can provide an added strength during the winter. The weight of snow, ice, branches, and late falling leaves can loosen your system from your home, or tear it down completely. This added strength that guards provide, can reduce the risk of needing an entirely new gutter system after a rough winter.
What Is The Best Gutter Guard?
Defining the best gutter guard begins how we came to solving the gutter guard mystery. When they first entered the market, we ourselves, were initially skeptical of their performance. Imagining how they would actually work didn’t relate to our understanding of a system. However, we decided to get into the market and start installing them ourselves.
It wasn’t until screen mesh gutter protection, and other forms of leaf protection was introduced to us, did we see a potential real solution. After some extensive research we were soon convinced that the mesh guard would be the best leaf guard for our customers.
As we installed the mesh guard, we found that many homeowners, like yourself, found the guard provided protection against many of these gutter destructing elements, and required far less maintenance. However, not even mesh gutter guards are created equal. Because of this, The Brothers that just do Gutters only offer and provide gutter cover solutions that we feel, not only perform the best, but also provide the best solution for each client.
Why A Mesh Gutter Guard?
We know the importance of clog free gutters to our clients, and we have found that the gutter mesh designs, and gutter mesh products provide the best coverage, water flow, and performance. We want to always provide our clients with the best rated gutter guards and the best gutter guard protection systems. It is for this reason that Brothers Gutters is always researching and testing new-to-market products.
