Of course, especially after a storm, leaves, branches, and the like do frequently block gutters. However, so many other things can cause problems. Here are just some of the items that have been removed from gutters over the years.
Let’s start with dead animals – from nesting birds to snakes, rats; earthworms have even been found breeding (probably dropped there by birds on their way to a nest).
Then there are objects such as tennis balls, baseballs, and softballs; even hats and caps (presumably blown there on a windy day). It’s not unknown to find tools from other past repair jobs or roof work!
No matter what is causing your gutters to be blocked, it’s vital to have them professionally cleaned and repaired as soon as possible; to best cope with whatever weather a Denver winter can throw at us!
