Leaf Guards in Toronto
Despite the fact that your home is structurally sound, it could always benefit from extra protection. That’s why we have gutters, isn’t it? As simple as gutters might seem, they serve the important function of directing rainwater away from your home’s foundation. This re-directing of water also benefits the basement, your soil and even your home’s siding. Gutters, however, require their own protection. That’s where Eavestroughing Toronto’s leaf guards come in. If you’re fed up with clogged gutters, call us today. We’d love to help you.

Toronto Gutter Guards Repairs
Damaged or clogged gutters can be the source of further damage to your home. Some of the most common side effects are:
- Leaking and Overflowing Gutters
- Pest Infestation
- Water Damage to Walls and Windows
- Water Damage to the Foundation
It goes without saying that a properly functioning gutter system is essential to the safety of your home. Fortunately, eavestrough repair is our specialty. Is your gutter system leaking? Eavestroughing Toronto will do the work and restore your gutter to peak performance.
If your gutters have been clogged once before, they’re bound to clog themselves again. When eavestroughs are exposed to the frenetic Toronto weather on a day-to-day basis, debris is bound to find its way inside them. While those twigs and leafs and leaves might seem harmless, they’re what can keep gutters from doing their important job. Over time, the build-up of that seemingly harmless debris will back up the water being channeled away from your home. This pooled water will cause overflow and render your gutters ineffective. Not to mention the standing water will cause corrosion in the gutter itself. That’s why gutter guards are so important. Without gutter guards, you might as well not have gutters at all.
Even gutter guards themselves might become damaged from time to time. Whether as a result of a sudden weather event or an improper installation, it is important to call a team you can trust.
Who better to trust than us? With decades of professional experience, we’ve never failed to correct the mistakes of an amateur contractor. Get your peace of mind back. Contact us for all your gutter and gutter guard repair needs.

There’s a lot to like about fall: the crisp colours, the opportunity to bring out cozy sweaters from the closet, the return to comfortable daytime temperatures - but the worst thing? The worst thing about fall in Toronto is remembering you need to clean your gutters out before winter hits.
The eavestroughs outside your Toronto home have an important job to do: they redirect water from your roof to the ground so that your home’s drainage system doesn’t get overwhelmed and your home doesn’t suffer from leaky roofs or structural damage.
But when fall comes, harsh winds blow dirt, leaves, and other debris into your gutters, clogging them up and making them all but useless. If you don’t clean your gutters out before winter hits, the water inside your gutters freezes. If this happens, your gutters could even collapse. That’s an expensive mistake you want to avoid.
Luckily, some talented engineers dreamed up a solution to your gutter woes so that you won’t need to clean them nearly as often. Leaf guards, also known as gutter guards, come in a wide variety of styles but all serve the same purpose: they let water pass into your eavestroughs and through the downspout while keeping leaves out. This prevents nasty buildups, which means you only need to hop on a ladder to clean your gutters once a year, not three to four times!
But not all leaf guards are created equal. We at Eavestroughing Toronto are Toronto’s gutter experts, so we’ve put together this review of the different styles of leaf guards you can find at your local hardware store. Not sure the DIY route is for you? Call us—we’ve got a wide variety of styles and can install them for you for a reasonable fee. Talk about convenient!
What Are the Best Leaf Guards for Gutters?
Not all leaf guards for gutters are made equal because not all gutter guards serve the same purpose. The needs of a household in Florida or Vancouver are very different from those in Toronto. We have way more precipitation and snow in the winter months, so it’s crucial your leaf guard system allows water to flow as needed to take pressure off your eavestroughs.
You have four different choices of gutter guard systems:
Mesh gutter guards: These are made of a metal screen that allows water to flow through it and keeps the leaves on top. Unfortunately, in our testing, these often got blocked on the top by leaves, which meant we cleaned them as often.
Bottle brush gutter guards: A spiky plastic material goes straight into your gutters. We don’t recommend these for life in Toronto - too many leaves fall here for them to keep functioning properly.
Nylon or foam gutter guards: These leaf guards are shaped like a wedge and go directly inside your gutter. They have a slick surface which prevents water and ice buildup and are great for the winter
Reverse-curve gutter guards: These systems didn’t work as well for our tests. They risk collapsing if snow builds up on top of them.
