Gutters and downspouts need to be regularly maintained in order to keep them working properly. You know you should clean the gutters at least once a year and make minor repairs ASAP, but you struggle to find the time. Many gutter companies offer bundled services for both residential and commercial applications. See how a gutter maintenance plan can help you.
A gutter cleaning company generally gives you several plans to choose from. It could include a combination of two or more services such as 2 gutter cleanings, 1 repair check, and 1 roof inspection. You will also be able to select the number of cleanings per year and when they will be done.
Once you’ve picked a gutter maintenance plan that works for you, you won’t have to worry about scheduling. The gutter company generally contacts you to set up a day and time according to your maintenance plan.
Ounce of Prevention
While it might sound like a cliché because you’ve heard it so many times, it’s still true – an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Most companies that do gutter cleaning, will alert you to potential problems. They might not be able to fix the roof, but they can spot trouble that might become worse if not dealt with sooner rather than later. They will also alert you to any gutter or downspout related problem that needs to be fixed.
Some homeowners remember to clean the gutters in the fall or spring but forget about the roof. A comprehensive gutter maintenance plan will include clearing debris off the roof first before starting on the gutters.
