Put Your Ladder Away For Life With Our Closed Gutter System
Alarming statistics from the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons tell us 500,000 people in the U.S. are treated for injuries stemming from ladder accidents each year. About 300 of those accidents prove to be fatal.
Older people are especially vulnerable to ladder accidents, and their injuries are often more severe.
It doesn’t have to be that way, though.
With GMproGutters Leaf Free Gutter Guards, you’ll never again have to risk your life by climbing a ladder to clean your gutters.
Is using a ladder really that dangerous?
It sure is. In fact, because climbing a ladder may not seem like such a big deal, we are often lulled into a (very) false sense of security. The truth, though, is that a fall can happen in a flash.
Whether it’s using the wrong ladder for the job, incorrect placement of the ladder or using a ladder with worn or damaged parts, you’re literally putting your life at risk each and every time you step on that first rung.
Commonly reported injuries from ladder falls include:
Damages to the spine
Head trauma (concussions and other traumatic brain injuries)
Since our bones become more fragile as we age, injuries sustained by older persons in ladder accidents are often far more severe than with other populations. Even a fall from a shortened height can lead to traumatic consequences in the blink of an eye.
How does GMproGutters prevent ladder falls?
That’s easy: we virtually eliminate your need for a ladder to clean your gutters. It’s as simple as that.
Here’s how it works.
The GMproGutters system (the hood and the gutter) is attached to the existing fascia board just below your roof. (If there is no fascia board material at your home, we can add it.)
Leaves, pine needles and other debris are prevented from finding their way into the gutter.
With the GMproGutters Leaf Free Gutter System, there’s literally no more worries about clogged gutters or concerns about damage to your home’s roof, foundation and siding.
Better still, there’s no need to use that ladder!
Why should I select GMproGutters over other leafless systems?
There are many tangible differences between the GMproGutters System and the “other guys.”
Increased ability to divert more rainwater. Most of the other leafless gutter systems are made for or use gutters barely wider than 3-4 inches. GMproGutters gutters, though, provide you with a 5-inch-wide leaf-free gutter; there’s no water buildup.
No damage to your roof and home. The other systems typically attach just under your roof shingles, putting your roof at risk and possibly voiding any warranties you have. By attaching to the fascia board, the GMproGutters System protects your roof and the structure of your home.
Better fit to the structure of your home. Because GMproGutters doesn’t even touch your roof or roofline, it can be properly fitted specifically to your home. Other products are designed to be placed on top of your existing gutters — adding significant weight and posing structural damage to your roof and your home’s foundation.
No maintenance required. Because the narrow opening between the hood and gutter allows only water to pass through, GMproGutters is an excellent example of a “set it and forget it” accessory for your home. There literally is no maintenance needed on your part. With the others, they’ll even admit you’ll need to regularly clear their systems.
Water is kept from damaging your shingles. With GMproGutters, there are two ways for water to flow into the gutter before being diverted to the downspouts. Due to a design flaw with the other systems, windblown water can easily find its way underneath your shingles.
They’re visually appealing. GMproGutters gutters have a smooth finish that resembles crown molding, and are available in a wide variety of colors. In fact, the colors of the hood and gutter are matched, so there’s more of a uniform appearance. The other systems merely attempt to match the color of your existing gutter – sometimes it works out, but it often doesn’t. Other systems also tend to be chunky and look out of place.
How well does GMproGutters handle icy and snowy conditions?
We have a healthy respect for Mother Nature. That’s why we designed and built GMproGutters Systems to withstand practically any amount of snow or ice buildup as well as gusting wind.
Because of the design of other systems, ice will continually freeze and thaw – which can eventually pry the gutters from your home.
GMproGutters, on the other hand, are designed for ice to form on the outside of the gutter, rather than inside. Because of this, thawed ice simply falls away instead of refreezing.
