5 Simple Ways to Prevent Gutter Clogging


Do your gutters keep clogging up? It’s a problem faced by both residential and commercial property owners. And it’s not something you should put up with. Clogged gutters can lead to overflowing water, leaks and damage to the inside and outside of your property. They can even contribute to ice dam formation in winter. Read on as we look at 5 easy ways to stop clogged gutters becoming a problem for you.

Keep trees trimmed

Trees are a great feature around your property, but they’re not so advantageous for gutters. Trees that stretch over, or grow within close proximity of your roof, can release a lot of leaves and twigs, especially in autumn. When they’re released, they fall or blow into your gutters and make it harder for water to flow through. The problem becomes worse as leaves become wet and create a dense barrier.

Install leaf guards

Of course, there is a way to stop those leaves getting into your gutters. Leaf guards filter out leaves and other debris before they enter your gutters, allowing water to flow through. It’s worth getting expert advice before installing leaf guards though. Some types are less effective, retaining debris and allowing moss to grow around your gutters.

Have gutters cleared professionally

Keeping your gutters clear yourself isn’t easy, nor is it something advisable without the right health and safety training. Professional gutter clearing allows you to keep on top of your guttering without any hassle or stress. For both commercial and residential properties, this is a sure-fire way to stop your gutters clogging and causing more expensive problems.

Regular inspections

Damage to gutters can increase the likelihood of clogging. Even the smallest crack can act as a trap for debris, allowing it to build up. The solution? Have your gutters inspected, to ensure they are in full working order. This will identify any issues and allow them to be fixed before they develop into something more serious. It will also flag up any issues with your roof, such as loose tiles, that could damage your gutters.

Install better gutters

Even with preventative measures, you might find your gutters are still clogging regularly. The problem could simply be how your gutters have been installed. Poorly installed gutters make clogging more likely, accelerating debris build-up in certain areas. Consider having a new guttering system installed. The investment could pay off in the long run, saving you money on continual repairs.
