Maintenance: Preparing your property before the leaves start falling

Now is a good time to make sure your gutters are clean and prepared for the season of rain and leaves falling.

For cleaning, a highly rated service provider here in the Seattle area is Crystal Panes Window & Gutter Cleaning.  Their contact page, with review, is at Two Cents.

That said, having to clean gutters – or pay someone to do it – is not something anyone wants to do.  I’ve looked around for information on gutter guard products that can greatly reduce the frequency and difficulty of maintaining gutters.  No products seem to entirely eliminate the need for human maintenance.  These articles were helpful in evaluating the types of products that are available:
