How to Handle Maintenance & Upkeep Post Gutter Installation, Snow Hill, Missouri

After gutter installation occurs, you might wonder how to keep them properly maintained. A vital part of your home’s exterior, gutters divert water away from the property, protecting your roofing, siding, foundation, and the landscape below. Without routine upkeep, however, debris accumulates quickly, causing leaks, mold, and pest infestations. Prevent those problems by following the go-to guide below.

Routine Upkeep

Once the gutters are in place, cleaning becomes the most vital aspect of upkeep. Inspect the area from the ground, and if you notice a pile of debris lodged in your gutters, get them gunked-out as soon as possible. While many homeowners attempt this themselves, it isn’t the best idea. Gutter cleaning is more difficult than it appears, and climbing a ladder to reach such a large surface area could easily cause injury if you aren’t experienced.

To avoid pest infestations, leaky roofing, and stained siding, call in professionals to thoroughly clean the entire area, including wiping out any honeycombs or homes left behind by pests. Gutters should be professionally cleaned bi-annually, once in the spring and once in fall, the seasons when leaves, sticks, and other outdoor debris build up the fastest. If you live in a tree-heavy landscape, however, aim for a quarterly cleaning. Keep up this cleaning routine, and you can expect your gutters to last for decades.

Gutter Repair & Replacement

gutter installationIf repair or replacement is required, you’ll need to call the professionals. Using the latest tools and equipment, they’ll inspect the system thoroughly, resolving any issues before they get worse. After gutter installation, expect an average life span of 20 years before a replacement is needed.

If you haven’t maintained the gutters properly, however, this number is significantly reduced. If you notice significant bends, cracks, holes, leaks, rust, or spot your gutters pulling away from the roof, you should get a replacement regardless of age. This will shield your home from damage, and revitalized gutters will increase the curb appeal and value as well.
