August is here. Before you know it fall will be here and leaves will be falling everywhere. The first spot to get hit at your property by these leaves will undoubtedly be your gutters. Gutters are like an open well trying to connect with nature and taking in anything it will send its way. While this is great for handling rain and melting snow, this presents a big problem when leaves, sticks, and debris start falling.
Every year, thousands of confused homeowners debate whether or not they should clean their gutters or install gutter covers. Keeping gutters clean is one of the top home improvement tasks that shouldn’t be ignored. But what is the best way for you to keep your gutters flowing smoothly all summer long?
For some homeowners, cleaning gutters is a yearly routine they complete each year when the leaves begin to fall however; cleaning gutters is not always easy. In fact, gutter cleaning is one of the most dangerous things you can do on your property. Think about it. You are high up on a ladder and trying to reach as much as you can from one point before you have to move the heavy ladder to the next stop. It is very common for homeowners to suffer injuries while cleaning their gutters. Our Minneapolis gutter cleaning team has heard many stories from homeowners about their bad experiences and struggles while cleaning gutters.

DIY Gutter Covers
The second options to keep your gutters clean are DIY gutter covers. Every hardware store has gutter covers that claim to be easy to install and guaranteed to last. Unfortunately, most big box store brands come with no warranties and will only withstand the extreme Minnesota weather for a couple years. In our team’s experience, the average big box store DIY gutter covers (whether plastic or metal) will last 2-3 years before it fails miserably.
The best option to keep your gutters clean is to invest in good reputable gutter cover with a warranty to last free of clogs or troubles. It might cost double or triple, but your investment will pay off overtime. No more time spent unclogging your gutters and no more worrying about damaging your house.
