leaves and weeding gutter

 

Gutter cleaning is one of the easiest ways to avoid damage to your home.  Regular  gutter maintenance is one of the most important home maintenance chores you need to do.

Gutters or leaders act as the first defense against rain and snow damage on key parts of your home. When cleaned annually or biannually, they are then prepared for any moisture by draining it away from the home and into the yard. It’s important to clean them out twice a year—especially in autumn after leaves fall—to avoid paying thousands of dollars on repairs to the roof, foundation, or siding from seasonal storms and improper drainage.

The downspouts play a key role in the gutters as well. If they are filled with debris, then the water will not drain into the yard, which means back-filling the gutters which cause damage to the soffit, fascia and siding and very likely the house interior.

Several factors come into play with gutter cleaning: is the home multi-level or single level?  How many sides of your house have gutters, what type of roof does the house have, does the house have any type of gutter guard or screens?  Why do we ask about the type of roof you have? If you have a slate or cedar roof then our technicians will not walk on the roof. Solid gutter guards on top of your gutters need special attention….you may think that debris will not get into the gutters but build up of debris over the years can cause your gutters to block and cause water damage.  Birds like to build nests and small animals hide their food and treats in your gutters! Screens on your gutters also require special attention. Screens come loose and leaves and debris accumulate.

Have copper gutters?  Ladder stabilizers are used to make sure the ladders do not touch the gutters.
