What Can Gutter Contractors Do to Protect Your Home?

What Can Gutter Contractors Do to Protect Your HomeWhy climb the ladder when you don’t have to?

Every six months, you’ve got to haul out the ladder, make sure it’s properly seated, put on some clothes you won’t miss, and then muck out the gutters, using a wire brush to scrub away any debris stuck to the gutter. And once that’s done, you get to find the rake, gather up all the debris you pulled out, and get it stuffed in trash bags before leaving it on the curb. Don’t you wish you could hire somebody to do it?

In fact, you can. Gutter Contractors can be hired to take care of every aspect of your gutters, like:

Checking Your Gutter System

Welds are often the weak point of any gutter system. While gutter technology has been able to reduce the number of welds in gutter systems with seamless gutters, there are still a few of them in every system. Even the best weld will eventually give way if it’s not properly treated. Gutter cleaners can keep an eye out for the welds and make sure they’re staying coherent. Some gutter cleaners may be able to touch up welds as well, depending on the equipment, so be sure to ask if that’s an available service.

They can also keep an eye out for other damage, such as holes or impact damage from tree limbs, shagging, and damage to your downspouts.

Removing Gutter Rust

It’s tough to keep your gutters up to snuff: if you’re only going up twice a year, you can’t keep an eye on your gutters. But hire a gutter cleaner and they’ll be able to keep an eye out for rust and similar damage. Furthermore, they’ll be able to break out wire brushes, scrub away that rust, and keep your gutters in better shape.

Touching Up Your Gutter’s Paint Job

Your gutters take a lot of abuse, and their paint job and coating is generally what first absorbs that damage. Over time, the paint can wear away and expose the metal, making rust and other damage a possibility. Gutter cleaners can help keep an eye on that paint job, touch up any worn spots, and double check the coating.

Checking the Eaves and Roof Shingles

Gutter systems can sometimes back up, and that can cause problems, such as mold and shingle corrosion on your roof. You can get on top of problems before they become worse, potentially saving you thousands of dollars.

And, of Course, Thoroughly Cleaning Your Gutters

Needless to say, gutter cleaners will keep your gutters clean, scrubbing them out and getting all the debris out, so you don’t need to worry about it. Such cleaning prevents clogs and damage to your gutter system — saving you potentially thousands of dollars in damage to your home.
