Gutter Cleaning Information
Gutter cleaning is a job which is often neglected. Cleaning the guttering is an important task of home ownership which should be performed at least twice a year. If the gutters are clogged, the overflow water can cause damage to the landscaping and foundation around the house.
The increased weight can cause the gutters to pull loose, which can lead to rot behind the fascia or trim.
During the winter months, clogged gutters can lead to ice damming and cause roof leaks. Ice will fill the gutters and begin to form up the roof slope. The ice will form between the layers of your roofing and back-up into the roof system. Heat from the house will cause the ice to melt and leak into the structure. If there are a lot of trees surrounding the house, it is recommended to clean the gutters more frequently.
