Which Gutter Protection works best for you

guttercoverssomanychoicesWith or without gutter covers, you need to have a maintenance program in tact. I applaud you for even thinking about the care of your spouts. Most homeowners dismiss them and wind up suffering the consequences. You should have, in most cases your eyes on your gutters 4 times per year. This doesn't necessarily mean a cleaning would be required. However, keep an eye on them. You don't know what may clump up in your spouts- tennis balls, birds' nests, a stick, roofing sediment. That is all in addition to the seasonal debris- seeds in the spring, leaves in the fall. Again, check them quarterly for proper flow during rain and expect to need a cleaning 1-2 times per year.
