Gutter Maintenance Jacksonville
Notice your gutters are clogged or leaky? In cases, this is a sign you need gutter replacement, but in other cases, your gutters may just need some TLC in the form of routine gutter maintenance.
Over time, your gutters will naturally become clogged by leaves, twigs, and other yard debris. Clogged gutters are especially bad in yards filled with beautiful trees that, unfortunately, drop branches onto your roof and gutters. It doesn’t take long for a clogged gutter to start wreaking havoc on your home!
Performing regular gutter maintenance will prevent issues like clogged downspouts, overflowing gutters, serious water damage to your roof, water seeping into your basement or cellar, and general gutter repairs. Not to mention, wet leaves and twigs left sitting in your gutters can become breeding grounds for mold, mildew, and insects. Yuck!
As you can see, the importance of gutter maintenance is critical to maintain the health of your rain gutters, roof, and home. Keep reading to learn about helpful gutter maintenance tips from our experts!
Gutter maintenance is vital for keeping your rain gutters clog free. Based on our extensive experience working with gutters, we recommend cleaning your gutters at least twice a year. If you live in a heavily wooded area or have lots of trees on your property, you may want to clean your gutters more frequently.
Spring is an excellent time to clean your gutters so they’re clear and ready for Florida’s rainy season when it kicks off in May. Without gutter maintenance, rainwater can’t be safely transported through your clogged gutters and will instead collect on your roof and near your house. This can cause major damage to your home’s roof, foundation, and basement. Gutter maintenance is a sound investment in not just your rain gutter system but your entire house.
When homeowners ask us about the best tips for gutter maintenance, we suggest trimming any trees near your roofline. The majority of the leaves and twigs in your gutter system will originate from trees with branches that extend over or near your roof. When the these trees shed leaves and branches, they drop onto your roof and are swept into your gutters where they remain until you scoop them out by hand. Traditional gutters are open built like open troughs and lack a protective barrier to prevent debris from entering and clogging the system. Less leaves on your roof means less gutter maintenance you need to perform when the time comes.
It’s a fact of life that even the newest and cleanest gutters will become dirty and clogged over time. Without the proper gutter maintenance, your clogged rain gutters will start to cause problems for your home or business:
