Gutters can be damaged by severe weather. You will want to plan to inspect and clean any debris from your gutters before heavy rain begins. In Florida, that means the end of spring or early summer. It also means the safest time is early morning before the heat. This is also a time to check for potential repairs.

Trees can lead to blocked gutters from their leaves or branches clogging the gutters. Plan gutter checks and clean out more frequently if your home is surrounded by trees. Especially if you do not have leaf grates installed.

Gutter Problems

Check for problems after any heavy rain. If water is not flowing from the downspout, but overflowing from anywhere, you might have a clogged or damaged gutter. Hornets, wasps, and other animals can also decide that the gutter is a safe place to build their home. Gutters can become damaged by trees, weather, and roof repairs.

Regular gutter cleaning ensures the gutters are not blocked by debris, become damaged, and can flow properly. It can be done safely by the homeowner but L & J Gutters can take care of your gutter cleaning needs. Contact us for a free estimate!
