Now’s the time! Have new gutters installed on your home while summer’s still here!

Summer officially started this week, but unfortunately it won’t last forever. While it’s here you should take advantage of it and get all of those home improvement projects ticked off the list before the winds of winter start blowing those pesky leaves off the trees and into your old, clog-prone gutters. If you’re thinking about replacing your gutters this summer, here are a few things to consider.

DIY Versus the Pros

Plenty of things make great DIY projects. Repurposing old windows, building a birdhouse, or maybe making new cushions for your deck furniture. One thing that does not make for a good DIY experience? Putting up new gutters. Gutters provide the vital service of directing rain runoff away from the foundation of your house, which keeps your basement dry and your house strong. This is definitely the kind of thing that is better handled by a professional.

What Kind of Gutter is Best?

Which is best may not be the best question to ask. Which is the most appropriate for me and my house is a better question, and the answer is always “It depends.” Gutters can be made from vinyl, aluminum, steel, copper or stainless-steel, and are either seamless or come in pieces. Seamless gutters are just that, gutters made from one long piece of material on-site so that there are no leaky seams. Be sure to talk to a professional about your options, and what gutter is best for your home.

Live LeaFree

When installing new gutters you have the option of going LeaFree. This is a system that prevents leaves and other debris from getting in, and clogging up your gutters. There are plenty of advantages to LeaFree systems, but the obvious one is not having to climb up a ladder and clean your gutters every time it rains.
