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.

Choosing The Right Color For Your Home's Gutters There are many different types of gutters to choose from, the ones that will be right for your home depend on your property’s specifics. However, one thing that many people overlook is the color of their gutters.

 

Here are a few things to consider before purchasing new gutters:

 

The Color Of Your Home 

Before you spend too much time thinking about it, first ask yourself if your gutters will even be visible. If they are on an area of your house that can’t be seen from the curb, you can choose just about any color. Of course, you may still want something that is appealing to you and your family.

 

Nearby Gutter Colors 

Next, you will want to consider the color of a few other areas of your house. Your gutters will be seen alongside your roof and exterior walls. You may also want to check with your Homeowners Association, to be sure there are no regulations on the specific color you choose.

 

Roofing Color

 In many cases, people choose either the same color as their roof or walls for their gutters. This allows the gutters to blend in and seamlessly match the rest of the home, which is ideal for anyone who doesn’t want them to be overly noticeable.

 

Accent Colors

Alternatively, you could choose a color that matches the trim around your windows or doors. You could even choose a color to match window shutters or some other aspect of your home’s exterior. This will make your gutters stand out more while still ensuring they match the overall aesthetics of your property. 

 

Choosing gutters doesn’t have to be a complicated process, but their color is just one of the many things you need to consider. Bell Seamless Gutters offers a wide range of colors for your gutters.

Why Gutter Maintenance is So Important

December 31st, 2019 | No Comments »

As a homeowner, there are many different responsibilities that have to be taken care of in order to

maintain your home. One of the often-overlooked aspects

of your home is the gutters. You may not understand how important the gutter system is, but it plays a major role in the upkeep of your home. It is best to routinely clean your gutters 3-4 times a year or every time the seasons change.

 

Here are some of the potential dangers that can occur when the gutters are not properly maintained:

Sidewalk Hazards

If your gutters are not draining properly, this can cause flooding which can travel to your front yard and sidewalk. If this flooded water freezes it can become extremely dangerous.

Leaking Basement

With inadequately functioning gutters water builds up around the foundation that can cause leaks into your basement.

Foundation Cracking

If you have a leaky basement you have cracks in your foundation. This can become extremely dangerous in the winter due to frost heave. Water gets into the cracks that have already formed and then it freezes when cold enough. The frozen water will swell and expand, causing even more damage.

Washed out landscape

 An overflowing gutter system can ruin your landscaping, and garden by flooding.

Damaged driveways

Aside from the obvious annoyance of having to step out of your car directly into a large puddle, flooded driveways can become significantly damaging to your property. A flooded driveway can lead to mildew, mold, and root rot.

Why You Do Need Gutters On Your Home

September 27th, 2016 | No Comments »

The Great Debate

A lot of debates have occurred over whether or not you need gutters on your home. Some people say that you can go without them and other people say that you should not. We believe that gutters are a necessity when it comes to home maintenance. We encourage everyone to have gutters on their home to avoid major issues down the road.

What Gutters Do

In order to understand why you need a gutter it is important to unBroken Gutter and Debris in NJderstand exactly what purpose they serve. A gutter is a long tube typically made of aluminum that wraps around a home. The gutter collects rain water as it pours down the surface of the home. The water then falls down through the gutter and eventually pours out of the gutter and onto the ground to keep the water from reaching the foundation of the home. As a result, the ground surrounding the house does not become drenched with water, keeping the foundation dry.

Why You Need Gutters

If you did not have those gutters around your home, the amount of water and moisture that would surround our home would quickly damage the foundation of your home. Water would get into the structure of the home which would cause cracks, breaks, and instability within it. Water can cause significant damage to the roof and siding of the home as well if it is repeatedly soaking them or seeping into crevices. If water does reach the structure of the home, it can also cause condensation which can cause wood around the home, such as window frames, to rot and mold.

Final Verdict

Although gutters can be expensive and definitely require some maintenance, we believe that gutters prevent more damage from occurring to the home. Maintaining your home is vital to avoid spending money on unnecessary projects down the road. We believe that gutters are a necessity to keeping your home well-kept.
