Cleaning the eavestrough system is a real pain that requires multiple trips up and down a ladder and dealing with soggy handfuls of debris. Gutters don’t work properly unless they are clean, but you don’t need to deal with this unpleasant chore. Installing a leaf screen can save you time and hassle by keeping eavestroughs clear; here’s how to install one.
Choose a Leaf Screen for Your Calgary Eavestroughs
There are three basic types of leaf guards to choose from: plastic or mesh screens, gutter filters, and surface tension units. Surface tension units for Calgary eavestrough systems are typically the most expensive options, but also work the best.
Prepare Eavestroughs with a Cleaning
Before installation, you’ll need to perform a thorough eavestrough cleaning. You may want to hire a company to do this for you to make sure the gutters are clean and in good shape. During the preparation phase, you’ll also want to measure the length of the eavestroughs on your home so you can purchase the appropriate amount of leaf screen.
Install Leaf Screens with Eavestrough Services
Now it’s time for installation. Read the instructions carefully and make sure it’s something you can handle. Many leaf screens are best installed with the help of professional eavestrough services.
Stay Safe During Leaf Screen Installation
Installing guards on your Calgary eavestrough system will likely require the use of a ladder, so practice good ladder safety and have a partner help you. Never use a ladder without someone else keeping an eye on you and keeping your ladder steady.
