Fall is the season of pumpkin flavored everything, hay rides, and apple cider. Of course, it is also the season of leaves, leaves, and more leaves. While raking your front yard into a leaf pile and jumping in with the kids is a fun way to make the most of fall, you must also take care to prepare your home and gutters. As leaves pile up in your yard this fall, they will also be piling up in your gutters and downspouts. The following tips can help you keep your gutter and roof free of debris and working in tip-top shape for this fall.
Install Leaf Relief Gutter Protection
One sure way of preventing damaging clogs and obstructions in your gutters and downspouts is to install Leaf Relief Gutter Protection. These gutter guards will not only put an end to routine gutter cleanings, but they will also prevent your downspouts, a part of the gutter system that is difficult to clean, from developing clogs. Along with blocking out leaves, Leaf Relief guards also prevent pine needles, twigs, and other debris from clogging your gutter.
Leaf Relief protection for gutters are the only gutter guards that are 100 percent efficient at preventing debris accumulation. They also never cave in, are pest resistant, and fit all roofs and slopes of your home, no matter its originality.
Have Your Gutters Cleaned
Having your gutters cleaned late in the fall season can help ensure the effectiveness during the winter months. If you have a heavy leaf fall around your home, watch the trees. Once the trees lose the majority of their leaves, you may want to have your gutters cleaned. If the leaves aren’t on the trees, they’re in your gutter, and if they stay there over the winter, the clogs can cause irreparable harm to your gutter system and home. If water builds up and overflows, it can result in damage to your foundation, walls, and gutter system.
Keep Your Roof Clear of Debris
As a good rule of thumb, try to scan your roof for signs of leaf litter or twigs and sticks. If this means taking a walk around the house or climbing a ladder, do it. It is safer to take the precautions to maintain a debris-free, effective roof and gutter system. If debris such as branches and leaves does accumulate on your roof, it can cause expensive damage to your gutter system and affect the flow of water from your roof.
