Caring for Your Gutters Despite the Foliage

By September 23, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

Having trees all over your yard makes it easier to spend more leisure time outdoors. You can build a reading nook by setting up a coffee table and a cozy chair under the trees. You can create a spot for relaxation by tying a hammock or building a tree house. Stringing fairy lights along the trees can lend your yard a charming, ethereal atmosphere at night.

One challenge to having trees all over your yard, though, is difficulty of maintenance. The amount of falling leaves makes your gutters prone to clogs and damage. Huff ‘N Puff offers the following upkeep tips to help your gutter system withstand the elements.

Thorough Inspection

Check your gutters for signs of wear and tear. Look for leaks, water stains and rust. Your gutters should hang level without leaning forward. If gutters have developed any of these issues, replacement may be the ideal option.

Regular Cleaning

Experts say you should clean your gutters at least twice a year, preferably in the spring and fall. Unfortunately, you’ll need to check and clean your gutters more often if you have multiple trees in your backyard. Installing a gutter protection system is more advisable in this instance.
