Gutter Cleaning & Repair
It is very important to clean clogged gutters. Clogged Gutters can cause big problems like wet basements, cracked and eroded foundations,and rotting siding often begin from small problems higher up. Gutters are supposed to catch rainwater and snow melt from the roof and funnel it to down spouts, which channel it away from the foundation. It’s as elementary as water flowing downstream. But gutters are surprisingly vulnerable.

Sagging Gutters And Gutters Hanging Off The House or gutters that may have fallen due to heavy snow or ice.
This can happen for a couple of reasons, and usually it’s a result of the hanger (the part that attaches the gutter to the house). It’s possible that they are rusted, worn from age, or have pulled out of the wood or the wood is rotted. If gutters become clogged and weighed down by debris, the weight may be too heavy for the hanger to support. We can replace these hangers, replace rotted fascia boards or simply reattach the gutter if they aren’t actually damaged.
Improperly Pitched Gutters can be fixed.
This means that the gutter is not slanted enough or the right way towards the downspout for water to properly drain. If you ever notice standing water in the gutter, that means it’s not pitched correctly towards the downspout and it’s not functioning as it should. It can be the result of bent gutters (from storm damage, heavy clogs, etc.) or they may have been improperly installed. We fix this to ensure the gutter is in the proper position, or rehanging a portion altogether if need be.
Holes Or Leaks due to storm damage.
Holes and leaks are often the result of large debris or storm damage. Large holes in a gutter can sometimes be patched and sealed, while small holes may only require a sealant. The gutter joints can sometimes pull apart as well, which results in a leak. We fix those leaks by caulking and sealing the joint from the inside of the gutter.
Draining Too Close To The Foundation
Ideally, water should be channeled away from the foundation of the house by several feet on the ground. Otherwise, the water can drain right into the basement and/or cause water damage to the foundation. If you’ve ever had flooding in your basement, or you can see large pools of water forming right up against the foundation during/after a storm, then this may be why. We remedy this problem by adding gutter extensions to ensure it will drain far enough away from the house.
