Gutter Repair Services
We know just how easy it is for your to-do list to quickly become out of hand—and it is far too easy for gutters to take a backseat to the more pressing, visible issues around your home. Unfortunately, if you do not clean or repair your gutters, they can become consumed by leaves, twigs, and other sediment.
If this happens, when it rains, the water will be redirected. This can cause major damage to your home’s drywall, roof, basement, foundation, soffits, and fascia. Over time, it can damage the gutters themselves.
Prevent this damage and protect your home by contacting the home improvement professionals from Mr. Handyman as soon as possible. While our team does not install gutters, we can repair them, clean them out, and fix any water damage that occurred from clogged gutters—and we can do it right the first time.
Tips on How to Maintain Your Gutters
The importance of maintaining your gutters can not be overstated. While we recommend having our experts do it for you, you may be someone who loves DIY projects.
If that’s the case, consider the following tips:
- Equip yourself with the right tools—including a ladder, putty knife / blade, and work gloves.
- Use a good garden hose to test the gutters once they have been cleaned out completely.
- Know the areas of your gutter that are the most prone to clogging so you can plot your path.
- Do not ever use the gutters to support your weight and never hang anything off of them.
You should also consider gutter guards, which can eliminate the need for seasonal cleaning. These can save you money in the long-run because they will minimize cleanup needs and prevent costly damage.
