As the old saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers.” They also bring plenty of leaves that get blown onto your roof and can end up clogging your gutters and downspouts. If you don’t want your gutters to spill water onto your home and potentially ruin your walls and foundation, you should make it a priority to keep them free of debris. To keeping your gutters from clogging, try out these tips.
Clean Out Your Gutters Regularly
It may seem like a tedious task, but cleaning them out after a sun shower or heavy rainstorm can make a big difference in keeping your gutters from clogging. Take a few minutes to hop onto a sturdy ladder and remove leaves, twigs, and other gunk that flew into your gutters when it rained. Make sure to wear long sleeves, gloves, and safety goggles, and use a scoop to keep yourself safe while performing this task.
Invest in Seamless Gutters
Leaves and debris often get caught at the joints of your gutters causing them to clog. Since seamless gutters are one solid piece without joints, they’re less likely to get clogged. Plus, they’re a great investment to add to your home, since they require less maintenance than traditional gutters.
Install Leaf Guards
If you’re not ready to invest in seamless gutters and aren’t too keen on regularly cleaning out your gutters, install Leaf Guards. These protection systems keep gunk out of your gutters to prevent them from getting clogged. Our particular systems have a built-in hood that covers the gutter bottom and deflects leaves and debris to allow rainwater to flow freely away from your home.
