Functional gutters are critical in protecting your property from water damage. If your gutters are clogged or damaged, water can overflow, drenching your siding, flooding your landscape and even seeping into your foundation, resulting in structural issues.
The best way to avoid roofing issues due to faulty gutters is to stay on top of gutter maintenance. Read on as we share some tips.
Trim Tall Trees
Tall trees near your home are a problem because leaves, twigs and other debris from the trees tends to accumulate in the gutters, which can cause a clog. They can also scratch your roofing as well as your siding. When enough tree limbs, pine needles, acorns, and leaves have accumulated in your downspouts and gutters, they will form a mess that’s attractive to critters.
The best way to avoid these problems is to regularly trim trees that are near your roof.
Install a Gutter Protection System
One of the most effective ways to reduce the accumulation of debris in your gutters and downspouts is to install a gutter protection system. Rhino Gutter Guards are famous for preventing debris buildup and clogs. Why let debris enter a system that’s designed only to carry water away from your home? Gutter guards are effective at reducing the need to clean gutters and downspouts.
Install Downspout Filters
To keep debris away from your downspouts, you can install filters at the points where the downspouts meet the gutters. It’s far less taxing to clean your gutters than to unclog downspouts.

Not all homeowners have the time or ability to clean their own gutters. Besides, if you have little or no experience, you might end up damaging your gutters or downspouts. For safe and thorough removal of debris from your gutter system, it’s best to hire a professional.
