Can I avoid gutter cleaning?

There are gutter guards (gutter protection systems) on the market that help you clean your gutters less often depending on the type of guard and the type of trees you have in your area. Having said that, despite what many companies might tell you, there is no such thing as a maintenance free gutter guard. The price of guards with the price of the required maintenance they require rarely, if ever, make more sense compared to regularly having your gutters cleaned. We clean just as many gutters covered with guards as we do with open gutters.
