Here’s Why You Need A Summer Gutter Cleaning

Summer Gutter Clearing

Summer doesn’t seem like the time to be thinking about cleaning or repairing your gutters, but here are a few things to consider.

Spring Is The Rainy Season

By the end of spring, your gutters are sure to be clogged with dirt, debris, leaves or limbs that have fallen on your roof. Summer gutter cleaning is an essential preventative maintenance for your home.

Guard Against Summer Storms

Summer storms and extreme weather can cause major problems with your gutters.  Frequent showers and heavy winds bring debris and possible gutter damage.  Cleaning your gutters can be an excellent way to maintain a healthy gutter system.

Preparing for fall

Cleaning and maintaining your gutters in summer is the best way to prepare your home for fall. When the leaves start falling, you’ll be able to rest easy knowing that your home is well-prepared for the added weight that will be deposited into your gutters.

Remember that prevention methods cost a lot less than repairs.  Don’t wait until gutter clogs cause damage to your home.  The Gutter Pros can help you with gutter cleaning and repairs.  We also specialize in seemless gutter installation by trained professionals.  We are fully insured and offer onsite FREE estimates.

Spring Cleaning – Don’t Forget About Your Gutters

Spring is here and that means homeowners everywhere are busy with yard work and home maintenance projects. One of the most important tasks is cleaning your gutters and checking for damage.

A working gutter system protects your home from water damage by draining water from the roof and channeling it away from the house. When the gutters and downspouts are clogged, water can back up.  If that happens, water can damage the roof, fascia, soffits, and siding.

Experts will tell you that regular maintenance will help reduce the need for gutter repairs and replacement. Don’t rely on what you can see from the ground.  It is very hard to tell if debris has built up in your gutters or if your gutter system is damaged and not functioning properly.

If you don’t feel comfortable on a ladder, or don’t know what damage to look for, have a professional take a look.  The Gutter Pros offers free onsite estimates, as well as gutter cleaning and repairs.  Its quick, professional, and a lot easier for you.  Call today at 443-880-4813.

How To Tell When Your Downspouts Aren’t Working

Written by   in 

Water accumulating in the foundation of your home is a sign that your downspouts are not working. This may be caused by clogs or loose downspouts at the point where they meet the top part of the gutter. The issue could also be the result of a defect in the gutter system. These unwanted pools of water can cause foundation damage, soil erosion, and mold. Getting the downspouts repaired can easily prevent this and help you avoid costly and time-consuming replacements in the future.
