Gutters Cleaning

Gutter cleaning and maintenance. Let’s face it, if your gutters are not doing what they are designed to do, water will enter your home and become a musty, mouldy, wet mess that no homeowner should have to deal with.

Here we have listed our top Do’s and Don’ts for gutter maintenance:

Gutter Do’s

  1. Clean Out Your Gutters AT LEAST Twice A Year. This is a vital part of keeping your gutters unclogged and in good working condition.
  2. Invest in Properly Installed Down Pipes And Down Spouts. If you only have 1 downpipe for your entire roof area, chances are you will experience overflow and leaks. Additionally, we recommend installing a downspout at the upper roof’s edge and a downpipe that leads down and away from your foundation. This will ensure adequate waterflow without causing overflow.
  3. Invest In Seamless Gutters. Seamless gutters are becoming high in demand as they are more durable and have less risk of leaking. DIY plastic gutters become brittle quickly and metal gutters rust in no time if not properly treated.
