Gutters & Downspouts - Effective Splash Guards
Gutter splash guards prevent water from flowing over gutters. The water from a roof valley into a gutter is a greater volume than in other sections of the roof, causing ground erosion, foundation problems and landscape damage. To prevent this huge overflow, splash guards can be added, as in this picture. They can be color-coordinated with the roof color or the gutter color to make them less visible while doing their work.
