Clogged gutters will prevent this water from draining. Instead the runoff freezes creating damaging overflows of ice called ice dams. Icicles formed from ice dams may be nice to look at but the additional weight puts tremendous pressure on your gutters causing them to pull away from the home and in some cases completely break off ripping away the facia board and causing damage beyond repair. Preventing Clogged Gutters Cleaning gutters can be a tedious and sometimes dangerous chore particularly for elderly homeowners who are not used to getting up on ladders. But as you have read letting your gutters get clogged is too much of a risk to your home.
Besides being extremely helpful in maintaining the safety and hygiene of your house seamless gutters can also effectively add to the beauty of your house due to the fact that the absence of seams provide the gutters a smooth polished and even look. One of the major disadvantages of sectional gutters is that the presence of seams can create ridges in the gutter leading to water logging and the accumulation of large amounts of debris. This can restrict the smooth flow of water through the gutters resulting in gutter overflow and water damages to the roofs and walls of your house. However along with these various advantages there are also certain disadvantages of installing seamless gutters.
The gutters may become loose or even fall under the weight of the ice. If the gutters or downspouts are clogged the gutters ice up faster. Ice will start building up on the roof a lot sooner potentially causing ice dams resulting in expensive repairs. Cleaning your gutters regularly will make each cleaning a simple easy job and prevent much more expensive and frustrating gutter problems. When Do My Gutters Need to Be Cleaned? Many people will agree that gutter maintenance is important but they may not know when their gutters truly need to be cleaned.
To see what it looks like Google "Waterloov gutter guards". With two rows of louvers no debris can wash in from the lip of the gutter and you can be confident that the gutter inside will never clog. Since 1989 this design has been used with great success on tens of thousands of homes. Maintenance is always an issue with all types of gutter guards. With screens they either have to be removed to clean the gutters inside or the tops have to be cleaned which often proves a big problem. The rounded nose or fin type (with or without the trough) have to be taken off the gutters disconnected from the roof and then reinstalled whereas with the louvered products they can usually be maintained by brushing with a telescopic pole and brush assembly. Removal of the gutter guards are never required with the double row design however with the single row design it may be necessary to remove the gutter cover at the downspout. In summary the best gutter guard for heavy debris conditions is the double row louvered gutter cover which can easily be maintained with a telescopic pole and brush (as high as two floors) and never clogs inside.
