::Why Should I clean my gutters?

During a rainstorm, your gutter system is designed to route runoff water from the roof to where it can drain away from the house. By doing so they protect siding, windows, doors, and foundations from water damage and help protect flooding in basements. If the gutters are clogged and can’t channel the runoff water properly the gutters will fill up and overflow. The water will then spill over the front of the gutter but it will also spill over the back of the gutter where the water can penetrate the house. This can cause some serious damage. Driveways and walkways will sink and rise, interior and exterior walls and floors can warp, bow or become wet, molded or stained. Entire homes have been destroyed due to water damage, which could have been easily and affordably prevented with regular maintenance of their gutter system. Gutters are not glamorous but are essential for routing roof runoff water from your home.

 ::Beware of gutter screens!

Don’t Believe the hype. I learned a long time ago that gutter screens are mostly a waste of material and peoples money. There are many types out there and they all for one reason or another don’t work. There is nothing out there that prevents the leaves from getting into the gutters. Most of the install yourself type are either falling into the gutters clogging them up more or flying completely off the house. The leaf guard gutters are the biggest joke. They are like Attaching a permanent bird hotel onto your house. Once the birds get in there, and they will, they are nearly impossible to get rid of. If you have a pine tree near your house Forget it. Pine trees will shed there needles all year round, and they will get through anything. When it comes time to clean these gutters good luck. The top cover doesn’t open for any access inside the gutter at all making it almost impossible to get the debris out. The Bottom line is that it is very important to monitor your gutter system this is very important. Allowing a clog to trap water in the gutter is very bad, especially if it freezes up there. A gutter full of frozen water is like a huge ice tray hanging off the house. It will likely pull away from the house which is in most cases the beginning of the water damage process. Many people think "yeah I put screens up now I can forget about my gutters, they will never have to be cleaned again." Those are usually the people who we wind up giving replacement estimates to.
