Home Improvement: Get Serious with Gutters

By June 16, 2014October 18th, 2023No Comments

When it comes to your home, regular maintenance should be taken to make sure that every part serves its purpose. It is not even enough that certain features, fittings or furnishing of your house are ‘good’ because you can always avail of options to make them better by doing renovations and upgrades. 

For example, when it comes to gutter, you can choose from several types and brands – each claiming as the ‘best gutter protection’ on the market, but without the proper guidance you may end up choosing a product with substandard quality. That is why it is important to have an expert take the ladder and check every detail of your roof’s sewers and downspouts so they could recommend the best material and structure suited the structure of your house.

Here is why cleaning a gutter is a serious matter that you shouldn’t take for granted:

To prevent damage, most experts suggest cleaning out your gutters twice per year — once in the fall and once in the spring — and possibly more often if your home is shaded by trees that drop lots of leaves and branches on the roof. But many people don’t keep up with gutter maintenance. The debris that fills our gutters is out of sight and out of mind — both literally and figuratively — and it’s just one more item on the long list of yard work and home maintenance that often goes overlooked.

If you have trouble keeping up with your gutters (and really, who doesn’t?), perhaps it’s time to consider installing gutter guards, a device that helps keep debris from clogging your gutters. Gutter guards or covers keep the leaves and twigs and any other junk that can clog your gutters while ushering rain to the downspout and away from your home. Your house is probably the biggest investment you’ll make in life, goes the common real estate mantra, so take the simple steps to protect it, starting at the top.

Wrightway in Wisconsin offers the patented Gutter Protection Systems from the top Gutter Helmet® brand that allows rainwater to flow freely while keeping out leaves, twigs, pine needles and other debris, keep your drains and downspouts clog-free. This way, you can stand to save money that would otherwise be spent on costly maintenance and repairs.
