Gutter covers provide the perfect way to protect your gutters from leaves and other debris. Before you can put on gutter covers there are a couple of steps that you need to take to get the gutters ready. In this article, we are going to look at how you can prepare for gutter covers.
The gutters need to be cleaned before you can put the covers on. You will want to get a ladder so that you can reach the gutters. When you are using a ladder be sure to put it on even ground so that you do not fall off.
Once you are on your ladder you can get started on cleaning the gutters. Use gloves to take all of the leaves out. You may also want to use a hose if any debris is stuck to the gutter.
When the inside of the gutters are cleaned you should inspect the rest of the system. Make sure that everything is on tight and that the spout is pointing in the right direction.
Finally, when you are putting the covers on you should make sure that the gutters are level. If they are level you can screw the covers in and enjoy your new gutters.
