Gutter Cleaning: Preventative Home Maintenance

So, your gutters are looking pretty full. Besides being unsightly, leaving your gutters full of debris can actually cause major issues for your home and its foundation. But what exactly is the point of a gutter? Well, they’re actually more important than you might think.

The primary purpose of a gutter is to move rainwater off of your roof and away from your home’s foundation. When there’s too much water falling around your house, it can erode the soil around it and compromise its foundation. Oh, and it can wreak total havoc on your basement, too.

When your gutters are full, they can’t do their job properly when it rains. This means that water just gushes down over the gutters and collects around your house, threatening the foundation.

What about gutter guards

Well, they might seem like a good idea, but unfortunately, they just don’t work. Basically, the debris just sits on top of the guards and it blocks the holes that the rain is meant to filter through. So, the rainwater rushes right over them. And the debris that collects on top still manages to work its way into your gutters. They’ll end up causing you more of a headache in the end because they actually need to be cleaned off more often than a gutter without a guard.

  3. We flush your downspouts with pressurized water. We do this to ensure that they are working properly and to discover if there are any clogs.
  4. We perform a visual inspection of your gutter systems and anchors. We report anything we find to you, the homeowner, so you can rest assured everything is working properly and address any issues.

 

Depending on the number of trees surrounding your home, we recommend booking a gutter cleaning appointment 1-2 times per year.
