Therefore as much as cleaning the inside of your gutters matters exteriors of your gutters must also be paid heed to. Dirty dingy and stained gutters are bound to drop the appeal of your house. Many times the water dripping of the edges of your gutters due to overflow and leaves stains and marks which are commonly called the Tiger stripes. Also the moisture on the outer surface of your gutters leads mold to grow and thrive thus blackening the whole surface and giving it a rather filthy look. Fortunately the grime and stains can be wiped off the gutter surface using specialized products such as paint thinner or a general purpose solvent.
Secondly you can keep rainwater away from your home and prevent it from damaging your basement driveway or landscaping. Finally a professionally-installed gutter system can make sure that the rainwater is directly flowing down into your gutter system. This will prevent your gutters from overflowing or producing leaks that can harm your homes exterior and interior areas. With a little help from a skilled gutters contractor you can keep your house in tiptop condition without any effort.
Attach the downspout to the gutter outlet with two small galvanized self tapping sheet metal screws. You may want to remove the downspout for cleaning one day. Now using the downspout bracket you riveted to the pipe earlier bend the flat bracket tightly around the downspout pipe and bend the two ends outward flat against the house siding. Using galvanized roofing nails nail the straps securely to the main building. A minimum of two straps is required with one at the top where the downspout first contacts the house and the other just above the bottom elbow.
Do My Gutters Need to Be Cleaned? Many homeowners may wonder how necessary it actually is to clean their gutters. Debris will clog your gutters and prevent water from passing. This backed up water can cause major damage to your roof above or your home below. Instead of being directed away from your house water may begin to overflow onto your yard foundation or into a window well causing flooding and damage. In the winter icicles may form in these places and become a dangerous hazard to people or objects below. Also if water is allowed to freeze and weigh down your gutters over time the nails may work their way out of the fascia (the board between the gutters and the house).
