Importance of Regular Gutter Cleaning
Gutters and downspouts are essential to your home or building’s exterior, but are often overlooked. It is imperative to maintain a gutter system because clogged gutters can cause soil erosion, termite infestation, mosquito breeding and soffit rot. Regular gutter cleaning and gutter maintenance will prevent anything from being collected and will improve the longevity of your home’s exterior.

- With proper gutter maintenance, your gutters should last over 20 years.

Steps to Properly Clean Gutters:
Step 1 – Inspect. Look for corrosion, holes, leaky joints and loose, missing or bent gutters.
Step 2 – Remove loose debris. Bucket clean gutters and roof area of all loose debris. Check and unclog all downspouts, remove the elbows and inspect all parts for clogs.
Step 3 – Repair small holes. Repair damage to gutter, such as small holes and cracks with a gutter O.S.I. liquid weld sealer.
Step 4 – Replace damaged elbows and cross sections. Replace all unusable elbows and cross sections of leaders with new heavy gauge parts.
Step 5 – Add extra hidden hangers. Add more support to entire gutter system, ensuring gutters and leaders are anchored to building.
Step 6 – Installing extra parts. We install extra gutter parts where needed: end caps, outlets and straps.
Step 7 – Remove all debris from roof areas and grounds. Handheld blowers are used to remove all dry debris from gutters, roof, walkways, decks, patios and driveways.
Step 8 – Add leader extensions. Install leader extensions to ensure water moves away from foundation areas (where applicable).
