Galvez Painting Corp. Gutter cleaning services will protect your home’s roof, siding, and landscaping from severe drains and prevent damage to your home’s foundation. Gutters periodically require very little maintenance to perform well; keeping them free of debris will do the trick. However, when Gutters get filled with leaves, sticks, and other debris, it can cause clogs, resulting in water lurking under the roof and eventually into the foundation.
Worse, winter melt and freeze cycle, the accumulated snow on the roof melts into the gutter and freezes there, and sometimes the gutters are so heavy detaching from the roof.
Also, as water builds up behind the ice dam, the melting snow and ice won’t drain, and it will seep under the roofing materials causing leaks and other damages that are very expensive to fix.
Gutter cleaning is essential; we recommend it at least once a year. However, if you have overhanging trees, you should do it more often or after a big storm.
