Reasons You Should Not Clean or Repair Gutters on Your Own

By October 7, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

Gutters add to your home’s protection against harsh weather. They gather rainfall then direct it to the downspout, away from your home’s foundation. However, leaves, and other debris can clog your gutters and prevent smooth water flow. This can cause water to overflow and run down your siding, degrading its quality. Although cleaning your gutters regularly is an effective way to prevent clogging, it is not always advisable – especially if you plan to do it by yourself.

Let Wrightway show you why you might want to rethink cleaning and repairing gutters on your own:


Just the act of getting tools and climbing up your roof can take up too much of your time, which you could better spend on more important matters. It’s also exhausting, so just imagine how much more time and effort you will devote to actually cleaning your gutters. Wrightway knows how frustrating and stressful this can be, and that’s why we offer gutter protection systems in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin to help you focus on other things.

Can Aggravate Existing Health Issues

Cleaning and repairing your gutters forces you to assume uncomfortable positions. These can lead to back pains and can worsen any existing health problems you might have, like heart ailments and rheumatism. Fortunately, Gutter Helmet® can keep your gutter system from clogging to begin with. Its unique design allows water to flow into a small slit while letting debris fall to the ground and away from your home’s foundation. This will help prevent existing health issues from getting worse.

Can Put You at Risk

Roof surfaces can become slippery during winter or after raining. Aside from slipping while you’re up there, your ladder may also lose stability. Since our gutter guards virtually remove your gutter maintenance needs, they also remove the danger of injury on your part. You won’t get hurt cleaning your gutters because you won’t have to clean them in the first place.

Clean gutters provide added protection for your home. Wrightway wants you to help you keep things that way and you can be sure that Gutter Helmet will give you a worry-free and positive experience. For gutter guard installations, call us today.
