I do not know why I didn’t think about it sooner, but I guess that they make things that can be installed on the top of gutters and they serve as a barrier to keep foreign material out of a gutter, so that it is able to drain properly and does not get clogged. I did not know that such things existed, but had I known, I would have invested in some years ago. Anyway, I am checking out this gutter guard from a company that is located near my house and I think it would be a good idea if I give them a call and try to get some more information.
I also want to get a quote as to how much it is going to cost if I were to get the gutter guard system installed on the gutters on my house. I am sure it is not exaclty cheap, but I can’t imagine it would cost much more than a thousand dollars or two maybe. I guess that is probably based on the size of your house. Obviously, if you have a really big house, then you would have a lot more gutters that need to be covered with the guard that they install, as opposed to a tiny house where it would take less time to do the installation job.
I thought about just trying to buy the guards myself and then put them on my house all on my own. However, I thought about the idea some more and realised I must be crazy if I think that is even a remotely good idea. I have a bad back and so I am not exactly steady on a ladder. Plus, it is really hot outside this time of year and I don’t want to do it.
