Gutter Maintenance - Average read time: 2 minutes

Old man winter is loading up your gutters with snow and ice right now and hopefully they are holding on tight until spring! Snow and ice build up during the winter, in part due to clogging and blockages from the year.

Why do gutters get clogged and blocked? Mostly because they are “out of sight, out of mind”. Since their clogs aren’t in your daily view, you forget to clean them out. Also, since they are high up, they are tough and dangerous to clean out regularly. This leads to the perfect gutter clogging storm, unless you have gutter guards.

My gutters flow just fine. Why install Pro Flow Gutter Guards?

Gutters serve more purposes than just to carry rainwater off of the roof. They protect your foundation by keeping large volumes of water away from it. They protect your basement from flooding. They protect your yard from soil erosion. They keep your home as water-free as possible, which leads to lower incidences of mold and mildew. Your gutters do a lot for your home, you should protect them as much as you can.

I do hate cleaning them. Okay, what are Pro Flow Gutter Guards?

There are dozens of gutter guards on the market, but there is only one Pro Flow Gutter Guard. The Pro Flow Gutter Guard is made up of an angled mesh shield that prevents debris from building up inside the gutter, but allows water to flow freely. The rubbed-based insert is angled at a forty-five degree angle to ensure that the flow of water is always away from your home.
