Just as you would with any other system around your home, you want your gutters to last as long as possible. In order to make sure your gutters hold up for years to come, it’s important to know what to do to maintain them.
Proper gutter maintenance can help extend the lifespan of your gutters, so follow these three tips for getting the most out of your gutter system:
- Keep them clean. Your gutters will naturally get clogged with leaves and other debris as time goes by. These clogs can damage your gutters and make it more difficult for them to redirect rainwater, so be sure to keep them clean. A good rule of thumb is to have your gutters cleaned at least once a year.
- Have them looked at. Chances are you don’t check out your gutters very often. After all, they aren’t usually the first thing you notice when you step outside. However, making sure to have a professional look at your gutters helps alert you to issues that you wouldn’t have noticed otherwise. This makes it easier to address these issues before they get out of hand.
- Install leaf guards. Leaf guards help prevent leaves and debris from getting into your gutter system. One of the best things to do for gutter clogs is prevent them, which is easier to do with quality leaf guards installed.
