Clean debris from the spouts and downspouts.
Verify that the gutters do not leak and are clear of debris. Check this by putting the hose into the gutter and checking to see if any water leaks through the sides of the spouts or does not come down the downspouts correctly.
Measure all of the gutters that need guards. If there are slots in between each gutter, measure in between the slots.
Buy the amount necessary to guard the gutters of debris.
Cut the guard to fit each gutter area.
Install the guard by sliding the top section under the bottom row of shingles and snap the guard's edge to the outer part of the gutter.
