Before installing gutter guards, it is important to ensure that the gutters are clean and free of debris. It is important to note that, even if the gutters appear to be clean, it is always a good idea to test them with water before installing gutter guards to ensure that they are completely clear of debris. This will help to ensure that the gutter guards will function properly and that water will flow freely through the gutters and out of the downspouts.

The first step in the gutter guard installation process is for the tear-down crew to inspect the job site and remove all existing eavestroughs and downspouts that need to be replaced. This ensures that the new gutter system will be properly installed and functioning correctly. The crew will also check for any issues with the soffits and fascia on the home, which are the horizontal and vertical panels that surround the eaves of a roof. If any repairs are needed, the homeowner will be informed and the repairs will be made before the new gutter system is installed.

After the eavestroughs and downspouts have been removed and any necessary repairs have been made, the tear-down crew will thoroughly clean the job site. This includes removing any debris or leftover materials from the previous gutter system. This step is important because it ensures that the installation process can proceed smoothly and that the new gutter system will be installed on a clean and clear surface. Once the site is cleaned, the crew will prepare it for the gutter guard installation, which may include measuring and marking the location for the new gutters and downspouts, and preparing the surface for the installation of the gutter guards.

 Professional gutter cleaning costs on average $160, with at least two cleanings recommended for uncovered gutters each year, which can add $320 to the annual housekeeping budget. The type of gutter guard installed affects the frequency of cleaning needed. Alu-Rex guards are considered the easiest to clean and may only need to be cleaned once a year or every other year, making it less expensive than hiring a professional for multiple gutter cleanings every year. Homeowners with two or three stories will likely want to hire a professional for gutter guard cleaning for safety reasons.

Properly installed eavestroughs and gutter guards are vital for ensuring that water runoff from the roof is effectively moved away from the foundation of your property. Clogged gutters can lead to foundation erosion, water damage, and even problems with the roof fascia and soffit. Installing eavestroughs and gutter guards can prevent clogging by collecting rainwater and preventing larger debris, such as leaves and twigs, from entering the drainage system.

A ladder standoff, also known as a ladder stabilizer, is a device that attaches to a standard extension ladder and helps to keep the ladder away from the gutter while you work. This allows you to perform the gutter installation or maintenance more comfortably, without the ladder resting on the gutter. This not only makes the job safer, but it also helps to prevent damage to the gutter itself. They provide an added level of safety and stability, allowing you to work more efficiently.
