If you’re spending your upcoming weekend cleaning your gutters, you’re missing out on so many activities with your family and friends. In this blog, gutters replacement company Gutter Helmet® of Eastern NY shares the things that you could be doing instead of hanging on the roof’s edge and cleaning your gutters.
The Things You Could Be Doing This Summer
A thorough gutter cleaning takes an entire afternoon to finish. It may not sound like a long time, but there are other activities that you can use that time for. Activities that are certainly better than scooping out dirt, dead leaves, and maybe the occasional animal carcass from the gutter troughs. Everyone loves a good backyard barbecue, having a few cold ones while showing off your prowess as a grill master. Or maybe just hang out at the park and throw frisbee with the kids.
If you’re up for a road trip, take the family to pick-your-own strawberry farms, of which there are plenty near in the Hudson Valley. If the family is up to some rides, amusement parks are the place to go. These are just some of the many things you can do with your family on a single afternoon.
Never Clean Your Gutters Again
As a gutter installation company, we know the feeling of spending hours on end trying to keep the gutters clean. But you also know why you have to do it: because one of the worst things that can happen to your home is the foundations getting damaged because of overflowing gutters. You need the right gutter protection system to minimize the need to clean the gutters.
Typical gutter protection systems filter rainwater, which means you still need to climb to the roof’s edge and scoop the detritus from the top. Gutter Helmet, on the other hand, sheds leaves and all manner of solid matter straight to the ground, thanks to its unique nose forward design. Rainwater is routed into the gutters using water surface tension. When installed over your gutters, Gutter Helmet virtually eliminates the need to clean your gutters, which gives you more time to spend your summer weekends where you should be spending them.
