3 Ways to Approach Gutter Cleaning

Even if you don’t have massive oak trees surrounding your home, your gutters could be susceptible to a buildup of drifting leaves, season after season. If your gutters haven’t been cleaned lately,  they could be at risk of being damaged.

Experts say neglected, clogged gutters could actually lead to leaks in the roof or other surfaces of your home, resulting in water damage that can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars to repair.

If you haven’t done so already, it’s time to tackle those gutters by cleaning them yourself or hiring a gutter cleaning service to do the job. However, selecting a gutter cleaning service may not be the only solution to consider. With the installation of seamless gutters, for example, you can minimize the amount of gutter cleaning altogether.

Take a look at your various gutter maintenance options:

Do it yourself. Cleaning gutters is one of the most popular DIY projects among homeowners. However, it also is one of the most potentially dangerous tasks you can take on. Why? Cleaning gutters involves working on a ladder, which is a fall risk. Sturdy equipment and proper techniques safely speeds the process. As you work, take your time to carefully secure the ladder against a sturdy area of the roof.

Hire a professional cleaning service. The investment in professional services takes the stress and danger out of your hands. Professional gutter cleaners, too, are skilled and work fast. Look for insured companies with a good deal of experience and ask for an estimate upfront.

Install seamless gutters. If you live among tall trees, you may find that gutter cleaning becomes a ritual that rolls around too soon. In that case, you may want to consider installing seamless gutters. These special gutter systems eliminate the need to clean leaves and debris. They are a good option if you prefer to keep home maintenance to a minimum.

I accidentally backed into my (partially) closed garage door. I called Garage Doors of Indianapolis and made an appointment for inspection and repair. The serviceman, Hunter, was great! He arrived when scheduled, analyzed the problems with our garage door, and explained the options for repair completely, I selected the attempt to repair the door instead of replacing the damaged 2 panels. Hunter did a great job on the repairs so that the damage is almost unnoticeable now. Beyond my expectations. Hunter is also friendly and pleasant, but professional. I think he’s an asset to this fine company.Mike Cook
