Do you hear that rumbling thunder? Can you see the skies getting dark? Is the gutter on your home or commercial building ready for the downpour? These are questions you should be asking yourself. Summer in Connecticut can be hot, humid and full of thunder storms and torrential downpours. If the gutter system on your home or office is showing any signs of clogging the time is now for professional gutter cleaning.
A clogged gutter is going to prevent water from draining properly from your roof and safely through the downspouts. If dead leaves, twigs and debris are causing a clog in the downspout or gutter channel then it’s very hard for water to flow freely. This means water will start backing up in the gutter, start to flow over the tops (which causes those dirty ‘tiger’ stripes you see on poorly maintained gutters), back up under the roof shingles (which can lead to leaks in your ceiling) and put excessive weight on the gutter system causing weak sections to sag. The longer a clog stays the more damage it does.
It’s no secret that gutter cleaning isn’t a very fun job. For a homeowner working outside alone it can also be a dangerous project.
