Save yourself from cleaning gutters this fall

No one wants to spend a beautiful fall day cleaning their gutters, but as we know they can’t be ignored either. Ken Evancic, Dealer for Gutter Helmet of Central Indiana joined us to share how and why you should avoid cleaning your gutters yourself this fall and forever.

1. Beautiful fall days shouldn’t be spent cleaning gutters, but they can’t be ignored either.

Problems that can occur from having full and clogged gutters are: 

Gutters can sag and pull off the house.

Water will quickly overflow when gutters are full.

Water can cause wood rot, ground erosion around the base of your home, and possibly lead to foundation cracks and damage. 

2. Ladders are unsafe, and the risk of falling is greater than we think:

Over 164,000 ladder related accidents occur each year in the United States.

Most ladder accident deaths are from falls of 10 feet or less.

Unfortunately we hear about more ladder accidents than we’d like to.
