Fall is around the corner—which means beautiful colors as the leaves change, apple cider, and cool evenings around the fire pit. But for all the enjoyment this season brings, it can be inconvenient for your gutters and home exterior!
If your gutters aren’t protected, falling leaves and small twigs can build up and cause all types of problems, including:
- Clogs and overflow
- Loose or sagging parts
- Damaged downspouts
- Seam leaks
- And more
Damaged gutters don’t function the way they’re supposed to, and this is why timely repair and maintenance is essential—but the best way to keep gutters clean and prevent these types of problems is a more proactive approach. Gutter guards can make a significant difference.
Best Way to keep Gutters Clean & Debris-Free
What Are Gutter Guards?
Unfortunately, gutters can get clogged with leaves, small branches and twigs, buds, pine needles and other debris. This is where gutter guards, or leaf screens, come in handy. These gutter protection systems help keep out debris and prevent clogging without blocking water flow. They are especially effective in the fall and spring, when gutters are most prone to clogging, but are beneficial all year long.
Regular cleaning and maintenance is recommended for keeping your gutters clear—but leaf protection systems are a great way to be proactive about it.
