Gutters are an integral piece of your home’s well being. They serve to control the flow of rainwater to protect your roof, walls, foundation and landscape. But when neglected, experts say gutters can turn from a necessity to a nightmare. A gutter clogged with leaves, sticks and other debris can cause a leaky roof or water damage to the interior or exterior of your home. Contractors say gunked-up gutters also make nice homes for pests, rodents, mold and honeycombs from bee infestations.
What about if you already have gutter guards? Does this mean NO MAINTENANCE? Sorry – Experts say you should plan to clean covered or hooded gutters at least once every two years, and more often if trees are near your roof.
Gutter covers reduce debris
Leaf guards significantly decrease the need for gutter maintenance, but they don’t eliminate the need completely,
Instead of every four to six months, you may only need to maintenance gutters with covers or screens every one to three years. The frequency of maintenance will depend on the quality of the cover and the type and quantity of trees in the yard.
Even if you do have gutter covers, it’s still a good idea to do a visual check each year.
Gutter prevention is measured in pennies, and repairs are measured in dollars.

Ladder Safety One Rung at a Time…….
Even the thought of climbing a ladder can be scary for some people. The potential for falls and serious injury is enough for many homeowners to leave the gutter cleaning and holiday decorating to the pros. But if you’re a do-it-yourselfer, or you have to reach a high cabinet or replace a bulb in a ceiling fixture, you’re probably going to use a ladder.
Falls are the third leading cause of unintentional injury-related deaths and the top cause of nonfatal injuries, according to Injury Facts. In 2017, 36,338 people died from falls at home or at work.
