Can we remove gutter guards and reinstall them?

Gutter maintenance is vital to protecting your home from water damage, and many homeowners turn to gutter guards to help keep debris out. However, at RedClean, we understand that gutter guards may not always be the perfect solution. In this blog post, we’ll explore the practice of removing and reinstalling gutter guards and why some customers prefer a recurring maintenance plan instead.

The Role of Gutter Guards:

Gutter guards are designed to prevent leaves, twigs, and other debris from entering your gutters, thereby reducing the frequency of gutter cleaning. While they can be effective to some extent, they have limitations.

The Limitations of Gutter Guards:

1. Not 100% Effective:


Gutter guards need to be foolproof. Debris can still make its way into your gutters; over time, these smaller particles can accumulate and cause blockages.

2. Regular Maintenance Still Needed:


Even with gutter guards in place, periodic maintenance is still necessary. They require cleaning and maintenance themselves to ensure they function optimally.

RedClean’s Approach to Gutter Guards:

At RedClean, we believe in providing homeowners with the most effective and practical solutions for gutter maintenance. Here’s how we approach gutter guards:

1. Removal and Reinstallation of Gutter Guards:

 Efficient Removal: If you already have gutter guards installed, we can remove them efficiently and safely.

Thorough Cleaning: With the gutter guards removed, we can thoroughly clean the gutters and the guards themselves.

Inspection: We inspect the gutter guards to ensure they are in good condition and damage-free.

Reinstallation: After cleaning, we reinstall the gutter guards securely, ensuring they function optimally.

2. Customer Choice:

At RedClean, we prioritize customer choice. While we offer the option to remove, clean, and reinstall gutter guards, we also understand that not all customers want them reinstalled.

Some homeowners find that gutter guards must meet their expectations regarding completely debris-free gutters. In such cases, they hire us on a regular maintenance schedule every 3, 6, or 12 months to keep their gutters clear.

Why Some Customers Prefer Regular Maintenance without Gutter Guards:

  1. Consistency:


Regular maintenance provides a consistent approach to keeping gutters clear. With scheduled visits, homeowners can rest assured that their gutters are attended to at the correct intervals.

2. Avoiding Gutter Guard Limitations:


Some homeowners have found that gutter guards must live up to their promises. Fine debris can still infiltrate gutters, leading to blockages and potential water damage. Regular maintenance eliminates this concern.

3. Cost-Effective:


   For many, regular maintenance is a cost-effective alternative to investing in gutter guards and their periodic cleaning and maintenance.

4. Peace of Mind:


Knowing that their gutters are in expert hands gives homeowners peace of mind, especially during rainy seasons or in areas prone to heavy foliage.


In conclusion, RedClean offers a flexible approach to gutter maintenance that considers the limitations of gutter guards and homeowners’ preferences. Whether you have your gutter guards removed, cleaned, and reinstalled or opt for regular maintenance without them, we aim to keep your gutters clear and your home protected from water damage—Trust RedClean for a customized gutter maintenance plan that suits your needs and ensures your peace of mind.
