Gutter Cleaning & Preventative Maintenance Service
Clogged or dirty gutters can cause serious issues for your property. Water can spill over causing landscaping problems, infiltrate your exterior walls, or cause your gutters to pull away from your roof.
Keep Your Home Protected
At Tycos Roofing & Siding, we specialize in gutters and understand how vital they are to the long-term well-being of your home. Our team provides gutter and gutter guard installation and replacement services. We also perform gutter repairs and have seen firsthand the serious roof, siding, and structural damage that can occur when gutters are not functioning optimally. Even something as simple as clogged gutters that just need to be cleaned can lead to substantial water damage that is expensive to fix. The general recommendation is to clean your gutters twice a year. We appreciate that gutter cleaning can be a hassle, dangerous, and not even practical for many homeowners. The good news is that we offer professional gutter cleaning at competitive rates. Our gutter cleaners will remove all debris, ensure that there are no blockages and that the water can flow, and clean the face of the gutters for maximum curb appeal.
Do I Need My Gutters Cleaned?
If you’ve never cleaned your gutters or can’t remember the last time you did, we recommend scheduling our gutter cleaning services as soon as possible. You never know when that next heavy rain will come. There are also some signs you should watch for. Rainwater overflowing the sides of your gutters is a dead giveaway that you have clogs and are risking water damage. Sagging gutters are also cause for concern as they are another potential outcome of one or more clogs. Horizontal streaks along your siding indicate overflowing even if you didn’t actually see it. Standing water near your foundation means that your gutter system is not properly channeling water away from your home. Other signs include birds nesting, the presence of squirrels and other critters, and plants growing from your gutters.
Gutter Guards Help Safeguard Your Property
Tycos encourages all homeowners to consider installing gutter guards. It is most efficient to have gutter guards installed alongside a new gutter system, but you can have them installed after the fact as well. Gutter guards prevent large debris that cannot easily pass through the gutters and downspouts from accumulating. That makes blockages uncommon. It also reduces how often your gutters need to be cleaned. While we recommend gutter cleaning twice a year or more for homes without gutter guards, homes with them generally only require gutter cleaning once a year or even less often.
When Should I Clean My Gutters?
Most gutter professionals recommend having your gutters cleaned every six months. More specifically, you should have your gutters cleaned in spring and then again in autumn after most of the leaves have fallen. Of course, this is general advice. Depending on where you live and the specifics of your property, you may have to clean your gutters more often and perhaps at different times of the year. If you choose to clean your gutters once a year, then in autumn after the heaviest leaf fall will usually be the best time. You also have the option to have gutter guards installed. Gutter guards prevent the accumulation of leaves and other debris, and gutters with guards typically only have to be cleaned once a year or even twice a year.
Gutter Replacement & Installation
Even with regular gutter cleaning and maintenance, your gutters won’t last forever. The 20-year mark is typically when you want to consider a gutter replacement and earlier than that if you begin to notice wear and tear. Our gutter experts design each gutter system to the unique requirements of the home. We use only the best materials available, including seamless gutters and heavy-duty fasteners, and our installation process is refined, meticulous, and thorough.
