Is That Pesky Gutter Guard Creeping Out? Tie It Down!

On the roof of the big shed some gutters were installed. As it is under two large trees, I placed gutter guard in shortly after. However, to my dismay it partly came out! What to do? Fortunately I had come across a similar issue before and the solution was simple.

The leaves had bypassed the gutter guard, unfortunately.

Eek! Gutter guard not doing it's job 😭

Before I did anything to the gutter guard, all that debris had to be cleaned off. The sticks and leaves made great mulch and the rotted stuff was compost.

And the gutters needed to be cleaned out. I started at the upstream end where the gutter guard had popped out.

The solution - tie the gutter guard down with a bit of wire. Hopefully it works 🙏
