What Should You Do About Clogged Gutters?

What Should You Do About Clogged Gutters?

Oct 02, 2020

Clogged gutters pose a real threat to your home and landscaping. As water backs up and begins to overflow, it can damage your roof, siding, foundation, shrubs, and more.

Should you find yourself dealing with clogged gutters – no matter the number – it’s critical to take immediate action. Here’s what you should do:

•    Clean them: Don’t let the clog remain and hope that it works itself out. Clean your gutters thoroughly to ensure that water can once again drain as intended.

•    Pinpoint the cause: Are your gutters clogged by tree limbs and leaves? How about some other type of debris? If you don’t know the cause, you can’t prevent it from happening in the future.

•    Install a gutter protection system: With this in place, water can enter your gutters but the screen prevents debris from getting in. This keeps your gutters clean throughout the year, allowing you to forget about this problem once and for all.

Yes, clogged gutters are a big deal, but it’s a problem you can easily work through with the right approach. Take the steps above and you’ll be well on your way to unclogging your gutters and feeling better about your ability to prevent the same issue down the road.
