Seasonal Tips

April Showers May Bring Flowers…

But They Also Bring:

  • Water overflowing from gutters
  • Sagging gutters
  • Debris buildup in gutters
  • Mold or mildew growth on or near gutters
  • Water damage to your home’s foundation, walls, or roof

It is important to recognize the signs that your gutters need cleaning and maintenance.

Gutter cleaning and maintenance is an important part of home maintenance that should not be overlooked. Gutters are designed to divert water away from your home’s foundation, preventing water damage and other issues. However, if gutters are not properly maintained, they can become clogged with debris, which can lead to water damage, mold growth, and even structural damage to your home.

Why Gutter Cleaning and Maintenance is Important

The purpose of gutters is to catch the water that is coming down your roof, let the water flow to the downspouts, and allow the water to be diverted away from your home. This way, water is carried away from your home’s foundation and basement, which will prevent leaking and other major problems. Simply having your gutters cleaned and inspected several times a year could save you a lot of money in the long run. 

We recommend cleaning your gutters at least three times a year during the fall/winter, spring, & summer seasons. During the fall/winter season, there is the largest volume of debris from all of the abscission and snow. Gutters with heavy ice and fall/winter debris require cleaning to properly channel water from the incoming rain showers that come in the springtime. During the spring season, foliage falls and acts as a sponge that clogs gutters when summer thunderstorms hit. During the summer season, storms and heavy winds cause debris to fall from trees. This build-up will clog your gutters and cause them to overflow, leading to leaks in your home and into your basement.
