Summer Gutter Cleaning

June 24th, 2020 | No Comments »

Summer is finally here, which means warmer weather, fun in the sun, and summer chores! While this may not be the most exciting task, it is crucial for the longevity of your home. During the summer you may have to clean up leaves, debris, and bird nests from your gutters. Gutters help keep your home from flooding and protect the foundation by sending precipitation away from your home.

With erratic weather and the amount of rainfall happening in all parts of the country, it’s wise to make sure your gutters are up to snuff and working properly, and that means making sure they’re not clogged up with even the smallest backup.

Summer Gutter Cleaning

That being the case, you might not want to think of yard work or other activities that might result in sweating and hurt backs. After all, summer should be relaxing, and we get that, but summer should be a time of rejuvenation and self-improvement, taking that rebirth feeling from spring and multiplying it by ten. Consider cleaning your gutters, especially if you didn’t do it the season before.

Here are a few tips for flushing your gutters:

Use a Proper Ladder 

When cleaning gutters be sure to use a sturdy ladder, and have a spotter if possible. This will ensure your safety. While on the ladder, remove any large debris that can be thrown away. 

Rinse Them Out 

 

Use a hose to spray any remaining twigs, branches, and other debris. 

Things smaller than leaves will wreak havoc on your gutter system if it’s not properly maintained. You don’t have to do a complete overhaul, just make sure there’s nothing obvious going wrong.

Or you can rely on the professionals at Bell Seamless Gutters to make sure everything is okay! Remember, summer is a time of self-improvement, feeling healthy and refreshed, in cleaning out the gutters of your life. We think it’s time to remove the stuff that’s backing you up.

The use of seamless gutters is becoming increasingly popular for many homeowners. Due to their ease and functionality, and their overall attractive appearance, seamless gutters are an obvious better choice, for their high quality design, and for the look and appeal of your home.

 

Seamless gutters have many advantages over traditional gutters; such as greatly lessening the chance of leaks. Traditional gutters must be attached to each other, piece by piece, which can leave spaces for rain to fall through. They are also easier to install; and many handy DIY’ers will find it simple to install seamless gutters, but for most people, professional installation insures that they are installed correctly.

 

Quality gutters are highly important because they protect the foundation of your home, by directing rainwater away from the foundation.

 

The benefits of using seamless gutters over traditional gutters are numerous. Here are just a few of the most important advantages.

 

  • Seamless gutters are far more attractive and add great visual appeal to the outside of your home.

 

  • They are more tailored to the look of your home, because seamless gutters are installed with exact measurements.

 

  • Most importantly, they help to reduce the chance of rain leaks, which can cause erosion of the gutters and create puddle and trenches in the ground below the gutters.

 

  • Seamless gutters are more easily and quickly installed because unlike traditional gutters, each piece does not need to be fastened to the other. There are some seams at the corners and the downspouts only, they are very securely sealed to greatly reduce the chance for leaks.

 

  • Most seamless gutters come with an enamel finish, so there is no need for painting.

 

  • And seamless gutters can come in many colors, so you can choose a color that best matches your home.
