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

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.
