While the autumn means a lot of fun activities for the whole family, from apple picking to pumpkin patch trips, this season is one of the worst for your gutters and home exterior. Your gutters are actually the most prone to clogging (and causing problems) in the fall.
If your gutters aren’t protected, falling leaves and small twigs can build up and cause all types of issues, 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 (such as mesh gutter screens and Gutter Helmet) can make a significant difference.
Best Way to keep Gutters Clean & Debris-Free
Provide Leaf Protection with Quality Gutter Covers
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.
