Clean gutters!

Perhaps this weekend you want to do an interesting weekend project for your house.
What you need:
Gutter Guard – in this example we are using a Leaf Out Gutter Guard.
Eye Protection
Water hose
(or call an expert contractor to do this professionally)
In this series of images, you can see how clogged and dirty this gutter system is. With a little elbow grease, and the willingness to get this done, the gutters will be free flowing for years to come.
Looking at the fist images, you can see all the decomposing organic matter in the gutter. When one looks up at a house’s gutters and sees plants growing, this is what is feeding those plants – they add weight, render the gutters useless, and it can get costly to replace or fix.

A contractor would agree with this blog entry – get those gutters cleaned out and have some Gutter Guardsin place. Well, here is a pictorial sample of what was done to correct this problem. Not many people can see what is really going on in the gutters.
From our website: Leaves, seeds, twigs and debris lay on top of the Leaf Out Gutter Guard panel and are blown off by the wind. Leaf Outslides under the shingles.

Rainwater flows down your roof and drains through the patent-pending Aluma Flow Louver System. Leaf Out has been tested to handle up to 28.4 inches of rainfall per hour.
