March is here and I look forward to:
March Madness - I'm a MSU Spartan Alum and hope they can find their basketball groove soon!
St. Patrick's Day - Always a fun time to pretend you're Irish.
Daylight Savings - Longer Days!
Arrival of Spring!
This time of year also includes rain and spring blossoms which can cause expensive trouble if your gutters are not flowing.
Rain gutters are not the most glamorous part of home maintenance, but they are very important in directing rain off the roof and away from areas where water causes damage. Clogged gutters can cause water to back up into soffits, walls and ceilings leading to water damage, mold growth, landscape destruction, wet basements and even cracked foundations.
Some simple seasonal maintenance and products can help avoid these problems and keep your mind out of the gutter!
GutterBrush Leaf Guard
One of the simplest and most affordable solutions homeowners can use to keep rain gutters flowing is called GutterBrush Leaf Guard. It is a cylinder shaped brush that fills the space inside a gutter and blocks the build up of leaves and other clogging debris while allowing water to flow through. GutterBrush requires no tools for installation as the 3 ft. sections simply slide into your existing rain gutters. They remain in place year round keeping gutters flowing and dramatically reducing the need for regular cleaning or maintenance. GutterBrush is made in the U.S.A. and comes with a money back performance guarantee.
For a limited time GutterBrush is offering a Free 6 Ft. Trial Pack for customers to experience the simple solution for themselves and put it to the test.
Most homes can be completely protected for $200 - $400 depending upon the total footage of GutterBrush needed.
Seasonal gutter cleaning is another way to reduce the risk of clogged gutters and water damage. If you don't mind being up on a roof or ladder it is a pretty easy project for the Do it Yourselfer or there are plenty of Home Improvement Contractors who can assist with gutter cleaning.
Always use caution when working from a ladder: The footings should be placed firmly on the ground and when possible, get someone to help you at ground level to secure the ladder. The following tools are also helpful for gutter cleaning: work gloves, narrow garden trowel or gutter scoop, bucket / s-hook, trash bags and a garden hose with sprayer attachment.
Enjoy the longer days and spring weather ahead and we hope that your mind stays out of the gutter!
