GENERAL GUTTER MAINTENANCE
Get it done - All in One Shot!

 

Your gutter system channels water away from your home. A clogged, sagging, or leaky system can cause extensive damage to your siding, foundation, or landscaping. It can also be a key contributor to a wet basement.

MAINTENANCE:

  • Use downspout strainers to prevent debris from collecting in the downspouts, where it is much harder to remove.
  • A splash block placed at the bottom of each downspout will help prevent foundation erosion by directing the water away from the house.
  • Regular inspections, maintenance, and minor roof repairs can minimize the threat of damage to your home due to roof failure. It is a good idea to familiarize yourself with signs of shingle wear, in the form of buckled, curled, or cupped shingles. Gravel in the downspout or gutter system is also a sign that your roof is getting old.
  • Gutters and downspouts should be thoroughly checked at least twice per year.
  • The best time to inspect gutters and downspouts is during heavy rain.
  • Water should not flow over the top of the gutters
  • Water should not lead at the seams or other places.
  • Gutters should not sag.
  • Downspouts should not leak or be blocked.
