Understand How Gutters Work

The main purpose of gutter maintenance is to make sure that water flowing from the roof down the gutter troughs is safely channeled into the downspout. To ensure your gutters are operating correctly, you need to prevent leaves, twigs and other debris from clogging the system. This is especially important if you have tall trees around your home.

Invest in Gutter Guards

A gutter guard system helps keep debris from accumulating in your gutters. While there are many different kinds of gutter guards, we recommend Gutter Helmet because it is easy to install, effective and very low-maintenance.

Check for Leaks

One of the most common causes of gutter problems is a gap in the system, usually along rusted troughs or at misaligned seam joints. If you want to avoid having to deal with this kind of problem, stick to high-quality, seamless gutters installed by trusted professionals.

Heat It Up

Ice dams are another hazard that can cause your gutters to malfunction. Fortunately, heated gutters are designed to prevent precipitation from melting at the edge of your roof. Installing a heated gutter requires the right tools and technical skills, so it’s best to turn to the experts.

There are plenty of other ideas that you can try out to reduce the need for gutter maintenance, and experienced professionals can point you in the right direction.
