Clogged gutters are no fun! If you spend hours cleaning your gutters, thinking, “there must be a better way to do this”, then you’re right!  What can you do to make things easier?

Install guards

One great way to eliminate the problem of clogged gutters is to use guards. There are lots of cheap gutter guards out there but they are also made of cheap materials that cause premature wear and breakdown. The quality of the guards is important to ensure they will work a lot longer. Heins Contracting carries great quality gutter guards in the Madison, Middleton, Sun Prairie area.

Benefits of guards

There are plenty of smart reasons to install guards. Convenience being #1 on our list! If you don’t want to entertain the thought of having to spend more hours than you should in getting the debris, branches, and dirt out of your gutters, then scouting around for gutter guards is a wise move. With guards in place, it’s much easier to get the debris and branches out. You can also wait for longer intervals between cleanings. Depending on the weather, you can also count on the fact that snow and ice or leaves, dirt and branches won’t clog your gutters. Considering the damage that the debris could have on your roof and gutter system, then these reasons for installing guards are more than good enough. Look for a Roof Repairteam in your area and ask about it.

Types of guards

You can choose from different materials. Metal screens are the go-to option if you’re interested in a DIY solution. The screens look like chicken wire and are quite easy to install. The drawback? Some organic matter might still pass through. Plastic screens are also a good option if you want a DIY approach. Be ready to do some regular cleaning, though, since the screen won’t catch everything. Micro mesh and reverse curve gutters are much better at keeping out debris. However, to keep the gutters in good working condition, regular cleaning is recommended. These go for all types of gutters, including foam, nylon and bottle brush guards.
