Keeping your gutters clean is an important task to protect your home. Clean gutters divert water and runoff away from your property which can keep your building safe while helping with aesthetic appeal too.

We’ll work quickly and efficiently to see the job done right.
Don’t underestimate the power of water
While rain is practically a constant in Portland, too much water can cause major issues. Water damage is one of the most destructive kinds of property damage. It can completely decimate many core attributes of the property including safety and stability. Water damage can also ruin electrical systems and be a danger to the people in and around the building.
Damage from water can be costly to fix too. As a matter of fact, It’s not uncommon for water damage to cost several thousand dollars or even tens of thousands at the higher end. One of the simplest ways to prevent water damage is to keep your gutters clean. Clogged gutters can cause several issues and even lead to expensive water damage if left unfixed. Unfortunately, the problems often go unnoticed until a repair is required.
Why are clogged gutters a problem?
Clogged gutters do more than leak drops of water on people walking beneath them. They can lead to many property issues including:
- Gutter collapse. Gutters can only hold so much. If they get clogged and overladen, they can snap and break off. Not only can this stop water and runoff from going where it needs to, but the collapse can be dangerous if anybody is nearby when it happens.
- Create an environment for mold and insects. Standing water can bring a host of problems, including being a breeding ground of insects. It’s also a prime condition for mold growth, which can spread to the inside of the property as well.
- Cause the roof to leak. If left alone for too long, clogged gutters can lead to leaks in the roof. In extreme cases, those leaks can accumulate and cause sections of the ceiling to fall in. If you notice swelling in the ceiling you should have it looked at immediately. Often, clogged gutters contribute to roof leaks.
- Lead to foundation damage. Water that makes its way into the foundation can damage the entire structure of your building. Foundation damage can be a costly repair and one that can’t be put off.
