Your gutters, no matter how sturdy they may be, won’t last long without maintenance. In fact, they may need more attention than you think. To prepare your gutter system for the rainy days, here’s what you need to do this summer.

4 Ways to Prepare Your Gutters for the Rainy Days

1. Cleaning

Since gutters have an open and hollow design, leaves, twigs and other forms of blown-away debris can easily slip through and cause clogging. This isn’t good news, especially to your home’s foundation. Water from overflowing gutters can wreak havoc on your home and affect structural integrity. Climbing a ladder to scoop muck from your gutter system, however, is a potentially dangerous task that you don’t want to do by yourself.

2. Realigning

Gutters tend to sag when clogging occurs. That’s due to the extra weight of leaves, twigs and other debris that have accumulated, and the volume of stagnant water in the system. To put your gutters back in place, get in touch with a local contractor that provides gutter realigning and installation of rain gutter guards.

3. Repairing

Gutter repairs are necessary when leaks begin to appear. You shouldn’t ignore even the smallest gaps that allow water to escape. Prioritize this activity before the damage gets worse, and avoid costly gutter replacement.

4. Installing Gutter Covers

How can Gutter Helmet® prevent clogging? This type of rain gutter guards is designed to block debris before it clogs your gutter. Plus, it allows water to adhere and pass through a tiny slit directed to your gutter system.

In addition to Gutter Helmet’s innovative design, it’s made of strong yet lightweight aluminum that can handle up to 22 inches of rain per hour. This is twice the amount of the highest recorded rainfall in the United States.
