Hanging Christmas Lights Easily on Any House

Like it or not, November is halfway over and Thanksgiving fast approaches. After that comes the chaos of Black Friday and the lead up to…gulp…Christmas!

Here’s your yearly reminder that you can in fact hang Christmas lights on LeafGuard gutters, and it’s easier than you think.

All it takes is some gutter clips and a little time up on the ladder. With LeafGuard gutters, you might be pretty unfamiliar with using your ladder for gutter purposes. Don’t worry! It’s just like riding a bike.  A few things to remember:

-       Make sure the ladder is sturdy

-       To be safe, hang the lights with a partner or spotter

-       Hang them in daylight and then test once it’s dark out

-       If your lights have clips built in, you’re all set. If they don’t, you’ll have to purchase gutter clips separately.
