Fixes For Common Gutter Problem
A clogged gutter can become a homeowners worst nightmare if it’s left for too long. Overflowing water can damage your homes foundation creating expensive repairs that can all be avoided by unclogging your gutters. This is one of the most common gutter problems that a homeowner faces.
We suggest that you clean your gutters at least twice a year. This will help prevent clogs from forming and leave you with a lot less stress. When your gutters become clogged it defeats the purpose of having gutters on your home and the excess weight of all the debris and water can cause them to sag and pull away from your home causing even more problems and issues.
Gutters & Guards, Inc. has a long-term maintenance program that allows you to forget about your gutters and we contact you to schedule a cleaning as many times a year as your home will need ( we usually do twice but that can depend on the amount of trees around your home. More trees more cleaning and vice versa).
If you are going the DIY gutter cleaning route, make sure to use proper ladder safety. Clear all the debris from your gutters, flush them with a garden hose ( without nozzle). If they’re flowing properly, your job is down. If not you may have a clog, in this we suggest you call a professional to clean your downspouts since it can be difficult to unclog them.
Another way to prevent clogs is by investing in a gutter leaf guard system. This does NOT mean you can install and forget. You will have to (no matter what) check your gutter guards and make sure that they are doing their job by keeping debris out, but they will keep clogs from forming by keeping that worse out of your gutter.
