It’s that time of year again when a gutter cleaning is needed. Now is the most important time to make sure everything is flowing properly. Clogged gutters hold water and during the cold season the water freezes and causes the gutters to expand and opening up joints causing premature leaks. This is along with the normal problems that are caused by backing up gutters and causing overhang and roof issues.
Gutter Cleaning will help prevent heavy debris which has accumulated over time, in addition to standing water. That debris and water can weigh as much as 370 pounds, and can damage the angle of the gutter (known as the gutter’s ‘pitch’). If that pitch is lost due to excess weight, standing water can back up into the home or overflow into the home’s foundation, possibly flooding your basement.
