Cleaning out your gutters is something to be desired. Avoid having to do this task more than required by installing some gutter protection.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
Grab a pair of safety or gardening gloves to keep your hands clean.
Set up your ladder.
Make sure it's on solid footing and is secured against the wall.
Carefully climb the ladder with your garden hose in tow.
Use your hands to pull out the bigger obstructions and some of the heaving sticks and leaves.
Use the garden hose to wash away as much of the gunk and grime as possible.
You may need to reposition the ladder in order to reach all areas of the gutters.
Grab a piece of the aluminum gutter protector.
Ensure the drip foot, or back edge, fits snugly against the back of the gutter.
Flex the shield slightly inward.
Connect the front edge of the gutter locking shield to the gutter lip.
Overlap each piece a little at the end and match up notched areas with previous sections.
