It is very wise every fall season to prepare your home for the winter/rainy season. Part of that preparation is to make sure your rain gutters are in proper working order. In order to do that, it is wise to have them cleaned and inspected for problems. First the cleaning should be done to remove all the leafs and debris.
Also the roof and valleys should be checked and cleared as well, so if any debris is found that it does not wash down into the rain gutters later on. Finally the downspouts need to be checked and flushed, to make sure they are draining properly. If any leaking seams are found, they should be properly sealed.
Sometimes that requires Pop riveting the seams together if they are coming apart and sealing the inside of the gutter so no leakage takes place in the future. If your home has trees around it, please make sure they are pruned back away from your roof line. Small repairs can be done for an additional fee.
It will help protect your number one investment, your home. We recommend having your rain gutters cleaned and inspected at least once a year as a minimum. If you have any trees around your home that drop their pine needles, leafs, etc., and cause blockages in your gutters and down spouts.
This is especially important if your downspouts drain into an underground drainage system, because any blockage underground can become costly and back up your gutter system, causing water to possibly enter your home and foundation. Also make sure the downspouts always drain away from the foundation of your home.
This is very important to protect your home against foundation repairs, cracks, mold, etc., which can become quite costly to repair.
