The Climate of Fort Worth Affects Leaf Fall & Gutter Clogging

Fort Worth is the fifth-largest city in the U.S. state of Texas and the 13th-largest city in the United States.[8] It is the county seat of Tarrant County, covering nearly 350 square miles (910 km2) into four other counties: Denton, Johnson, Parker, and Wise. According to a 2022 United States census estimate, Fort Worth’s population was 958,692.[6] Fort Worth is the second-largest city in the Dallas–Fort Worth–Arlington metropolitan area, which is the fourth most populous metropolitan area in the United States.[9]

The city of Fort Worth was established in 1849 as an army outpost on a bluff overlooking the Trinity River.[10] Fort Worth has historically been a center of the Texas Longhorn cattle trade.[10] It still embraces its Western heritage and traditional architecture and design.[11][12] USS Fort Worth (LCS-3) is the first ship of the United States Navy named after the city.[13] Nearby Dallas has held a population majority as long as records have been kept, yet Fort Worth has become one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States at the beginning of the 21st century, nearly doubling its population since 2000.

The trained and certified installation team at Sharp Seamless Gutters removed the old gutters throughout the home. We then installed new 6" seamless gutters and connected them to a downspout. We added a 7' discharge line, to take the rain water away from the garden bed and the deck in the homeowners back yard.
