Home / Homeowner Tips / Don’t Be a Drip, Clean Your Gutters!

 

It’s a sunny day and yet my gutters continue to drip water although it hasn’t rained in a couple of days. It gets annoying, but a problem that seems so small could lead to bigger problems. I am thinking that the gutters must be full of debris collected over the fall and winter from leaves and branches, unfortunately, I don’t have a ladder to inspect the gutters and I am not good with heights.

A quick call and five days later (it felt like an eternity) a handyman arrives and finds that my gutters are full of debris and one of the seams slightly split open. The handyman cleaned out the gutters and re-sealed the seam and the dripping completely stopped. This may not be a big deal and more of an annoyance, but it could cause other structural damage over time.

It’s really nice to go outside and not hear that dripping noise anymore and my patio is now dry on sunny days!

This is the perfect time of the year to inspect your gutters and to ensure there clear of debris and that the water is flowing away from your home. If you’re not comfortable doing this yourself, hire a handyman by visiting servicelive.com.
