Prevent NJ Autumn Leaves from Clogging Your Gutter System

Oct 10, 2014

The foliage’s changing of colors is a spectacle that comes with autumn. Alongside this spectacle, however, the season brings with it inconvenience to homeowners. Falling leaves not only cause a pile of mess in your yard but also accumulate in your gutter system.

Gutters serve as an avenue for rainwater to travel from the roof to the ground or drainage. Some amount of debris and falling leaves can clog the waterway, blocking the water. With water damming your system, it can overflow on your walls, flood your basement, and weaken the soil or foundation of your house. If not prevented, blocked gutters may lead to bigger problems like ice dams during winter and fire during summer.

Cleaning your gutters is your responsibility as a homeowner. Letting leaves and debris accumulate may cause worse problems than you initially think, especially during fall. Hence, regular cleaning and maintenance are imperative.

Gutter cleaning may be a strenuous chore to do, but it’s necessary to keep the waterway functioning properly. If you want to fix your clogged gutter system, there’s a permanent solution for it.

Gutter guards aid in the proper flow of water and, at the same time, stop dirt and other debris from entering the gutter system. They significantly prevent debris buildup as they serve as covering for your gutters. With them installed in addition to your gutter system, you may no longer need to clean your gutters again.
