Gutter Maintenance & Leaf Guard Option

Gutter Maintenance & Leaf Guard Option

Looking around the state, it is pretty obvious, Minnesotans love trees! They provide beauty, shade & protection to name a few reasons why they are so great. Cleaning up after their fallen leaves, twigs and needles is not so great. But it is just something homeowners should do, especially cleaning tree debris out of their gutters.  

See, the purpose of gutters is to divert the rainwater from your roof away from your house.  If the gutters are full of debris or the downspouts are clogged, the gutters do not perform properly and the water from your roof may go under your house, potentially compromising your foundation or flooding your basement.  Clogged gutters can also lead to water damage to your wood trim or siding.  So it is important to occasionally clean out your gutters & downspouts. 

If you don't feel up to the task, you can call us OR consider getting gutter covers. There are a variety of leaf guard gutter protection designs available, but this particular kind offers:

  • Heaviest debris loads with smallest possible holes
  • Locks into hidden hangers and does not disturb shingles
  • Powder-coated micro-mesh aluminum
  • Two center beads for added strength
