Now is the time of year that everyone is thinking about upcoming festivities and decorating for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other various winter holidays. It is also the time of year that homeowners should be buttoning up winter projects and preparing their homes for the long, cold, snowy, winter months (especially in a state like Michigan!) One thing that you should be sure to do is clean out your gutters. You can do this yourself or hire a professional, like Alloy Gutter Company, to do the work for you. Gutter cleaning is important because leaves and debris become heavier and heavier as they soak up water and eventually turn to ice. This can cause your gutters to pull away from your home, which is a whole new problem. So be sure to get your gutters cleaned while there is still time! Now is also a good time to install leaf protection on your gutters. All three styles of leaf protection that we offer can be installed on new or existing gutter systems. When we install leaf protection, we also take the time to clean out your gutters and downspouts. Leaf protection is the gift that keeps on giving – making your future seamless gutter maintenance much more manageable! Let your mind be at ease this winter knowing that you took the proper precautions in caring for your greatest investment – your home!
