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).
The gutter maintenance process varies depending on the seasons. The below paragraphs shows the gutter preparation for the autumn and the winter season: For the fall season: During the fall season the shedding of leaves will be more predominant. The leaves and the debris stays there for long period thus cause decaying. Ignoring them will lessen the quality of the gutters. Here are few steps to prepare them for the fall season. #1: wipe the gutters completely: keeping the gutters dry will let the leaves to fly off and the debris also does not stay to the maximum.
How to Install Gutters Gutters come in several different sizes although most people never notice. You may have become accustomed to seeing white and brown gutters on homes but in fact many custom colors are available today. I built a Marine barracks in New York that required all red trims. Louvers vents fascias and soffit materials and yes even the gutters and downspouts were a matching red color. As with window units there are dozens of custom colors to choose from today. Almost all residential applications use a four inch by four inch wide standard gutter and three inch downspouts or leaders.
Anticipation is met with dismay as within twelve months to eighteen months plants are seen growing through the screens and the gutters are overflowing. Examination of the gutter and the screen reveals the gutter full of a very fine soil like debris with the plants rooted deeply within the dirt. Its absolutely amazing how all this fine debris has accumulated in the gutter from passing through the screens. The idea of self cleaning gutters seems absurd after an experience of this nature. Besides screens there are many other gutter protection devices.
