Gutter and Downspout Examination
We take a look at your whole entire above-ground downspout and gutter system.

We also take the time to notice missing screws, loose-fitting joints, and areas where your gutters may have significantly pulled away from the fascia. Performing this examination allows the professional to correctly evaluate the particular issues with your gutter system, specific areas that may need special attention, and to figure out the specific procedures necessary to ensure a correctly functioning rain gutter system.

After the assessment, the cleaning pro will securely set up an extension ladder to access the starting point of cleaning the gutters. Depending upon problem areas discovered during the assessment, the professional may select to get rid of large obstructions first or may well simply start at one end of the guttering working their way to a downspout. For two-story houses, most technicians choose to clean the gutter system starting with the highest level and work their way downward. Heavy-duty work gloves, a garden or gutter scoop, and a bucket are very beneficial when cleaning the gutters. When particularly persistent obstructions are found the technician may choose to employ a plumber’s snake or high-pressure water to clear the obstruction. Finally, after getting rid of all the debris the gutter cleaner uses a low-pressure water hose to rinse the gutter system and check for the effective operation of the complete gutter system. At this point, the specialist may possibly have the opportunity to recognize prospective problems with your gutter system that were not noticeable prior to the cleaning. The technician will advise you of anything you should be on the lookout for over time.
