Many gutter service companies will not clean a home with a slate or specialty roof.  Why? Because it is time consuming, labor intensive, and requires technicians who provide that little bit of special attention.

We train our technicians not to walk on any building that has a slate, wood or other specialty roof. They will perform the gutter cleaning directly off the ladder using ladder stabilizers when necessary.

Why we do not walk on specialty roofs including slate, tile, wood or metal.

Slate roofing tile has a storied history, and is known as one of the highest quality, longest lasting roofing materials.  Slate draws homeowners because of its beauty. So you wont find a roofing material on the market that has a classier, more celebrated appearance.

On the other hand, relative fragility of slate roofing tile means that gutter system maintenance requires professional care. You don’t want to have to replace broken tiles because the gutter system was not working properly. The wrong company may have caused this problem.  Replacing broken tiles is not as easy as it sounds, since slate comes in lots of forms. This makes it nearly impossible to find replacement tiles that are a perfect match.

Wood and cedar roofing requires special care when having any type of work done that may require workers to go up on the roof, though durable one wrong step can increase the chances of breakage.

Over time moss, mildew, and mold can seep into the wood and also weaken the shingles or shakes.

The gutter system on your home plays an important role in the performance of your cedar roof.  If the gutters are not functioning properly, water will become trapped under the cedar shakes or shingles and create roof leaks into your home.
