If you want to maintain the structural integrity and aesthetic value of your home, it is important you pay attention to some of the installations around the house including your gutters. When your gutters are clear of debris and buildup, they can direct rainwater and drain it away from your home. Unfortunately, gutters are the most neglected installations as far as home maintenance is concerned.
Over the years we have been in operation, we have seen cases where houses have suffered extensive damages both on the inside and the outside due to poorly maintained gutters. In addition to routing water away from the foundation of the house, gutters also play an important role in directing water away from walkways and as such prevent ice buildup during winter which can cause damage or be an injury risk.
The Frequency of Your Gutter Cleaning
When your gutters get filled with twigs, debris, and dirt, it doesn’t mean that they are not the best, but it implies they need to be cleaned. Our qualified and insured technicians will flush your gutters, clean them and remove any debris thereby leaving them as clean as new.
We recommend that you have at least two cleanings a year to ensure your gutters are working properly. However, this largely depends on the area you live and the number of trees in your yard. The best times for gutter cleaning and maintenance is during spring and fall. This is because during fall, most if not all the leaves are down and during springtime, maple trees shed their leaves and these can get anywhere including your gutters. In some places, homeowners can have even three gutter cleaning sessions each year based on their tree climate.
Installation of Gutter Covers
Inasmuch as cleaning gutters is our job and we love it, we also consider it our responsibility to advise homeowners on how they can reduce their gutter cleaning cost and frequency by installing gutter covers or what are popularly known as leaf guards.
These installations significantly decrease gutter maintenance costs hence saving you money to reallocate to other needs you may have. Instead of the usual 4 to 6 months of gutter cleaning exercises, with covers or screens installed, you may have only a single session per year.
