Plugged Gutters? Prevention Tips

Do your gutters get clogged and start overflowing when the rainy season begins and after leaves have fallen?

6 Options to Prevent Plugged Gutters

1. Gutter Vacuuming (Debris Removal)

Having your gutters professionally cleaned to remove all the debris plugging up your gutters is a great first step to prevent overflowing gutters.

A final rinse of gutters will be done where necessary. 

It’s a good idea to have this service scheduled in spring and/or autumn if you have trees nearby and your gutters tend to plug up regularly. (price range: low-moderate)

2. Gutter Guards

Have gutter guards (aka leaf guards) installed. This will prevent debris from going inside and only allow water to flow into the gutters. (price range: high)

3. Gutter Baskets

Have Gutter Baskets installed over your gutter outlets to reduce gutter clogs and to allow your gutters to continue flowing during the rainy season. (price range: low-moderate depending on how many outlets)

4. Larger Outlets

Most gutters typically have small diameter plastic outlets that easily clog. Having larger outlets installed will improve the flow of water exiting your gutters. (price range: low)

Large round outlets improve flow

 

5. Funnel-Outlets

Having Funnel-Outlets installed is an excellent option for reducing clogs at the outlet due to the extra-large size of the outlet. (price range: higher)

Large funnel outlets reduce clogs + increase flow

6. Leaf Catchers

Leaf catchers can be installed in the gutter downspouts in unison with Funnel-Outlets or larger outlets preventing leaves and debris from going into your underground drainage system. (price range: high, but worth it!)
