Though the project may seem simple it's nearly impossible to overestimate the importance of cleaning your gutters. One spot of overflow or one clogged downspout can lead to a failed gutter system that can flood basements, create an ice dam that may cause water to back up into your roofing, create a swamp out of your yard, or saturate and eventually detach your home's siding. A small pile of leaves or debris can end up costing you thousands upon thousands of dollars in home repairs and lost assets.
Are you willing to take that risk? Give us a call for all your eavestrough repair, cleaning and replacement needs.
The frequency with which you will need to clean your gutters really depends on your home and, more importantly, your home's surroundings. If you've got a large deciduous tree that sheds leaves in the fall you may need to clean your gutters twice a year. Almost every home would do well to clean their gutters a minimum of once a year.
Too many home owners install gutter covers and believe they'll never have to clean their gutters again. This simply isn't true. You can probably get away with cleaning your gutters only every other year, but you can't simply let it go and expect your gutter covers to do all the work.
Worse, gutter covers can be almost as expensive as gutter installation itself. By getting estimates and doing some simple math, many homeowners find it's more cost effective to hire professional gutter cleaners than it is to install covers. That said, it may still be a good idea to install gutter covers if they're part of the initial gutter installation, where the additional price is more manageable than retrofitting eavestrough.
Getting at least two – four estimates for your eaves cleaning in Kitchener is only the beginning of ensuring you get worthwhile, cost-effective service. You don't want to pay more than you need to, but it's not unheard of for some contractors to dump debris out of your gutter and leave it on your lawn.
