Gutter Cleaning vs Gutter Guards

Here we are October 2013 and the leaves are falling all over Connecticut and into your gutters and downspouts too. We make no secret that we are in the gutter guard business. The reasons why we sell gutter guards in Connecticut is for the simple reason that you can’t clean your gutters enough and that great gutter guards like Mastershield will end gutter cleaning for you, Permanently. When it comes to gutter cleaning how many times a year and when is appropriate? Well take this time of year, leaves are falling now, it rains tonight and your gutters are clogged and overflowing causing problems you may or may not see, yet. If you wait a few more weeks to clean them they are even more full or frozen then no one is cleaning them. The same thing happens in the springtime, it’s May 15th your gutters are clean here comes the next day, a big rain storm with wind and yes, your gutters are clogged. You have to remember it doesn’t take a lot of leaves to cause a problem. If your paying someone to clean them and keep them clean, 2 or 3 times a year won’t do it. If your cleaning them yourself after the 6th or 7th time it probably isn’t fun anymore. Also keep your safety in mind, falling even 6 feet off a step ladder can hurt you seriously. I would also like to mention that Mastershield can be heated to help prevent ice dams. A nice option to have on your whole house or areas of your home you would like protected.
