Gutters are an important part of your roofing system. They divert water away from your home to prevent and avoid any damage that water can do to your home. Gutters require regular maintenance in order to function properly. Over time, debris collects in the gutters and a gutter cleaning becomes necessary.
Here are the top three questions about gutter cleaning.
Why do I need to clean my gutters?
Gutters should be cleaned so they function properly during heavy rains. If there is debris in your gutters, it can clog up the mouth of the downspout. If this is not treated quickly, leaks may form in the foundation causing further damage to the house. Therefore, it is vital to to keep the water flowing through the gutters which can be done by making sure that the gutters are routinely cleaned.
How often should they be cleaned and when is the best time of year to clean them?
There are a few factors to consider when it comes to determining the number of times your gutters should be cleaned and when they should be cleaned. Although not easy to predict, the recommended time of year would be before winter with a second cleaning after the spring thaw so that the gutters are ready to handle heavy spring rains.
How can I tell when my gutters are beyond cleaning and need replacement instead?
Aluminum gutters usually doesn’t require replacing unless they have fallen away from the home. In most cases, they can be repaired or re-pitched to function like new. However, galvanized gutters will require replacement if they have begun leaking.
