Gutter Cleaning and Maintenance
You’ve got a rain management system on your house or building. This is an excellent first step to managing the water as it comes off the roof.
This will save you costly water damage to the basement and foundation, help to preserve your landscaping, minimize erosion, help protect against costly wood rot and reduce the chance of mold or other fungi growing on and around your property. However, your gutter system is only as good as how well it functions. Often, once these systems are installed, they are forgotten and not very well maintained…until there is an issue.
These issues can be non-functioning gutters or downspouts due to clogging or damage – thus greatly reducing the effectiveness of your system.
You can have leaking miters, end caps or downspouts which slowly drip water up against the fascia, trim or on walkways…potentially leading to wood rot or erosion or ice build up in the winter. If you don’t properly maintain your gutter and downspout system by keeping them free of debris, they can be more susceptible to clogging and building up with snow and ice during the winter. Worse yet, in some instances, they can fail, potentially causing costly property damage.
Finally, non-functioning gutters can also mean that water is standing in your gutters, creating a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes, carpenter ants and other insects.
When you finally do realize that there is a problem, you are forced to find someone who can do this service. But, who is reputable? Who actually knows about gutters and how they function? Who can make any proper repairs or adjustments and guarantee that they are working right? Who can assure that they’ll actually show up at the right time of the year to effectively clean and maintain your gutters?
