Most homeowners want to protect their home from damage caused by clogged gutters. If you have always wondered how to do this then you’ve come to the right place. Gutters should be cleaned at a minimum of two times a year where trees are present and upwards of four times a year depending on the trees you have on your property and when they shed debris. If you do not have any trees you may get an occasional clog from roofing tiles, birds’ nests, tennis balls, and other kid’s toys.
In New Jersey. If you have trees but not that many 2 times a year generally will do the job at the end of fall after all the leaves fall. And at the end of spring when all the pollen and seed pods fall. If you have over 4 large trees overhanging your house you’re going to want to have your gutters cleaned more often as one storm can cause enough debris to clog a downspout. To avoid these sorts of issues you can install downspout strainers that stop the downspout from clogging nearly as much. If it’s in your budget and you can afford it I always recommend guards which bring down your overall maintenance by 4 times and is even cheaper to maintain when they need a quick clean-off.
