Gutter cleaning near me

Many of these gutter guards are readily available at any home improvement store and can be installed by a minimally-skilled Do-it-Yourself homeowner. Most units are simply designed to "snap" into place and provide some sort of mesh or screen to allow water to pass through while eliminating large object from entering the gutter.
After cleaning the gutters and downspouts, loosen the bond between the trailing edge of roof shingles and the drip edge. Then slide the flat side of the gutter guard underneath the shingle while aligning the other end of the screen toward the front edge of the gutter. The lip on the gutter guard is designed to snap on to the edge of the gutter.
In areas of the gutter exposed to high winds, drill small holes through the guard and anchor it to the gutter Gutter cleaning near me with small stainless steel screws. Otherwise, the tension of the lip on the guard and the shingle will keep the screen in place.
