Can I Install Guards to Existing Gutters?

If you are tired of spending hours on a ladder every spring cleaning out your gutters, you might want to consider installing gutter guards. These simple stainless steel mesh guards can keep leaves and debris out of your gutters, so water will flow easily through your gutters, making spring gutter maintenance almost non-existent.

But what happens if you want to install gutter guards but your gutters are still in good shape? Can gutter guards be installed on existing gutters?

Our gutter pros at The Rhino Gutter Company explain.

Key Takeaways:

  • Gutter guards prevent damage to your home, landscaping, and foundation.
  • They help cut down on seasonal gutter maintenance.
  • Our Rhino Gutter Guards are made from stainless steel micro mesh and can be installed on your existing gutter system.
  • With the Rhino Gutter Company, you get a 20-year warranty!

The Importance of Gutters & Gutter Guards

Gutters are an important part of the home’s exterior. Without them, water can build up and cause damage to foundations and walls. Unfortunately, gutters can become clogged with leaves and debris, leading to gutter problems. But don’t despair! You can install guards to existing gutters that will help prevent blockages from occurring.

Gutter guards are designed to fit over a current gutter system, forming a protective barrier that prevents leaves, twigs, and other debris from entering the drainage system. Most guards come in either brush or mesh varieties and are easy to install at home without professional help.

  • Brush-style guards require regular maintenance as the bristles may need sweeping or washing every so often.
  • Mesh-style guards offer more permanent protection but must be correctly fitted for optimal performance; they also tend to be pricier than their brush counterparts.

Can I Install Gutter Guards on Existing Gutters?

Many kinds of gutter guards can be installed over existing gutters, but remember, this should be done by a professional company.

Our Rhino Gutter Guards are made from stainless steel micro mesh and can be installed on your existing gutter system. Our installers only have to slip one end of the gutter guards under your home’s shingles, while the other end attaches to the outer edge of your gutters.

Alternatively, an installer may curl the mesh into an L on one end and screw it into the fascia under the roof. The other end slips into the gutter for a tight fit.

When you install Rhino Gutter Guards, you won’t have to worry about:

  • Unsightly, clogged gutters.
  • Foundation flooding and damage from water leaking directly on the ground around your home.
  • Stains on your house.

These are the advantages that you can look forward to!

  • Your gutters will be completely protected.
  • They blend into your home’s aesthetic.
  • Full 20-year warranty from The Rhino Gutter Company.

What to Look for When Buying Gutter Guards

When choosing gutter guards, don’t choose the cheapest option, opt for something high-quality, so you don’t have to replace them a few years down the road.

Poor-quality gutter guards can be worse than not having them at all, so we recommend working with a professional gutter company, like The Rhino Gutter Company, for the best selection and professional installation.
