Gutter & Downspout Cleaning
We recommend to clean your gutters & flush your downspouts twice per year. Clean them in the fall when leaves and tree debris fill the gutters. Clean them again in the spring when helicopters and tree buds fill the gutters. Having Baltimore Gutter Cleaning perform its gutter and downspout cleaning service on a consistent basis will reduce the likelihood of water damage to your home as well as potential runoff damage to your landscape. We remove all debris by hand and remove the debris from your property. We verify that your downspouts are working properly and free from any clogs. If necessary, we will flush your downspouts with water.
Fun Fact: A gutter can weigh up to 300 pounds when it is full with water & debris.
Gutter Repair & Maintenance
Re-securing loose gutters, re-pitching sagging gutters, & re-tightening downspouts are some of the common gutter repairs that we provide. If your gutters are leaking and need to be caulked, we provide that service as well. When gutter spikes are nailed back in on a loose gutter, the gutter often becomes loose again within a few months. For this reason, we use "hidden hangers" to resecure loose gutters. The hidden hangers, which are also know as ode's, provide twice the strength of a gutter spike because they are screwed in & not nailed. For your gutter system to work properly, it is very important to make sure that your gutters are pitched properly & secured tightly to your house.
Fun Fact: A home with a 1,500 square foot roof yields 1,000 gallons of water for every inch of falling rain.
Gutter Replacement & Installation
The average life expectancy of an aluminum rain gutter is 20 years. Many homeowners often wait 30+ years before they have their gutters & downspouts replaced. Usually by this time, the gutter have already failed & have caused some type of water damage such as wet basements, rotted fascia boards, and leaking roofs. We offer both 5 and 6 inch gutters made of .032 gauge aluminum which is the thickest aluminum available to gutter contractors. Our newly installed custom gutters come with a 20 year manufacturer's warranty. We recommend & install only seamless gutters secured with hidden hangers.
Fun Fact: The number #1 cause of water damage to a residential home is due to faulty gutters & downspouts.
