Gutters and downspouts that are neglected and allowed to fill can cause expensive problems for your home. The added weight from the debris and water can cause the gutter to pull away from your home. This causes the need for costly repairs to reattach them. If left full of debris, the water will overflow the gutter and cause wood rot in soffit and facia, doorways, siding, etc. Depending on your property in the amount of trees surrounding your home, your gutters should be cleaned 1 to 2 times per year.
The use of gutter guards it is not recommended by Judge Services. We have yet to find a gutter protection systems that actually works as advertised. Even with the gutter guards, your gutters will eventually clog and then they will be more difficult and costly to clean since the guards have to be removed and then replaced.
