Gutters will need seasonal cleaning, especially as fall comes around and the leaves begin to drop. It doesn’t matter which profile, size, or material you have, they will clog in the right environment with leaf debris, sticks, branches, or plant nuts/fruit.
During heavy rains, rainwater can clog your gutters, causing water to pour over the sides. This adds a lot of weight which could damage your system, house, or yourself. Going up a ladder or onto your roof is dangerous and avoidable, especially while it’s raining.
We commonly add leaf guards to gutter systems to prevent natural debris from collecting, blocking the flow of water, or clogging the downspouts.
