Well, it’s that time of year again, my favorite time of year — Fall.
Soon leaves will be changing colors, then falling. For those of you that have many trees in your yard like me, one aspect of fall that is not pleasant is cleaning leaves and debris out of our gutters. That is one chore I no longer have to worry about.
Several years ago, Tom Callen suggested I have Gutter Topper installed, the gutter protection system that Callen selected to install on thousands of homes throughout southeastern Wisconsin.
As you can see in the pictures, Gutter Topper is very sleek and fits right on top of your existing gutter. The product comes in a wide variety of colors, so you are sure to find one that matches your roof shingles and/or your gutter. The best part is you never have to worry about cleaning your gutters again. All the debris stays out and water flows through.
Installing Gutter Topper is one of many exterior jobs Callen has done on our homes throughout the years. Many times, we focus on larger items, like windows, siding, roofing (Callen installed the wonderful roof you see in the pictures as well), but your home is a system and needs to function properly. This includes soffit vents, gutters, and downspouts.
We’ve all seen the horrible stories from this summer’s heavy rains of yards and basements flooding. Homes need to be properly graded and water needs to flow AWAY from the house, not back to the foundation. Clean gutters certainly aid in that process.
So enjoy fall, stay off the ladder, and avoid cleaning your gutters. Call Callen today at 414-529-5509 to have Gutter Topper installed on your home.
