Someone’s gotta do it. Might as well be….US!
Heart problems require a cardiologist, dirty gutters require gutter cleaners who are trained, skilled and insured to do the work.
Because of how important a properly flowing gutter system is to your home, it is crucial for you to keep your gutters clean and flowing all year round.
When gutters overflow, water not only spills over the front edge of the gutters, creating that nice waterfall at your front door, but it also overflows behind the soffit boards which causes moisture damage and produces wood rot and mold. This mold eventually works it’s way inside the attic and throughout the house by way of air ventilation ducts.
Gutters that are neglected will carry heavy debris which has accumulated over time, in addition to standing water. That debris and water can weigh as much as 370 pounds, and can destroy a gutter’s pitch! The pitch is the angle of the gutter which uses gravity to direct the water to the downspout. If that pitch is destroyed due to excess weight, the water will not flow to the downspout, and will instead sit still in the gutter. At that point, the standing water can back up into the home.
Not concerned yet? If you wait long enough, mix in a classic Dallas bi-polar winter weather system or two (freeze-thaw-freeze, repeat…) and that standing water and debris, expanding and contracting, will destroy your gutters in no time.
We’ve all heard the stories of homeowners falling from rooftops in an attempt to clean the gutters out themselves…These accidents can be prevented by simply hiring a person who has the proper experience to effectively clean the gutters and downspouts. Roofs are dangerous and this task should be left to a professional.
