Gutter Cleaning

Ensuring your gutters are clear and clean is an important part of your homes weatherproofing & waterproofing system

Debris can collect in the gutters. Grass, moss and even birds nest can frequently be found to be the cause of blockage to the gutter. It is difficult to predict and prevent however as for the most part the contents of the gutter is very difficult to see from the ground.

It is important that the gutters are cleaned regularly. Bi-annually is preferred. Spring and Autumn ideally. Although if your house is located directly under trees more frequent cleaning may be required. It is advisable to minimally have the gutters cleaned before winter. If debris and water get trapped in the gutter it can freeze in the colder weather and form blocks of ice. This will put a strain on the gutter, the gutter brackets and also the gutter mounting. The trapped water can be particularly corrosive and cause damage or rusting to the gutters. Copper gutters, aluminum gutters and steel gutters can be badly damaged by the trapped water.

If the gutters are not maintained adequately and water is unable to drain away from the house damage can result. Often the first inclination a home owner has that their gutters need cleaned is the damp coming through a wall due to the faulty gutter system. Regular routine cleaning of the gutters can prevent problems such as this before they arise.

The main service we deliver is gutter cleaning.

When we arrive at your home to clean the gutters do tell us where you feel there is a problem with the gutters, such as a leak , and we will be sure to check and if need be repair this area.

If your home is a two or three story property, whether terraced, semi detached or detached, we will clean the gutters with traditional gutter cleaning tools and gutter cleaning equipment. The gutter is cleared of all grass, moss, leaves etc. Where one gutter meets another, or at the joins, there can often be gaps. If this is the case leaks can occur and water can run down the outside wall of the property potentially causing a lot of damage. We seal this with gutter sealant taking care of the leaks. We then check the down pipe or downspout and if this is blocked we unblock it. Finally the gutters and the gutter brackets are checked for any serious damage. If any is found we inform the client. Costly replacement of guttering however is rarely necessary and most of the time we are able to reassure the client that they now have clean gutters which are fully operational.
