Cleaning and fixing clogged gutters and downspouts is an urgent problem for homeowners. Our customer, Matthew, has a beautiful home nestled away in one of Portland’s Southwest neighborhoods. His house sits under canopy trees that dump leaves and other debris regularly onto his roof, and subsequently, the gutters and downspouts become clogged.
Your home’s gutters control the flow of water and protect your roof, siding, and foundation. If left neglected, clogged gutters can lead to Interior & exterior water damaged. Regularly cleaning your gutters will ensure this doesn’t happen, and gutter guards are a great solution to minimize cleaning needs.
During our second service to this home, we discussed a long-term solution to resolve this issue with gutter guards. Gutter guards prevent leaves and debris from clogging the gutters and downspouts. The design allows high flows of water to continue through even if leaves and debris are on the gutter surface. Gutter guards typically last the life of the gutter system.
Our crew carefully cleaned all the leaves and debris from the roof and gutters before installing the new gutter guards. We used backpack blowers and hand tools to clean those surfaces. For our next visit to this home, we recommended a roof treatment to prevent moss build-up.
It looks great! I think it will help especially the area I live in with all these trees. Thank you for your professionalism and excellent craftsmanship.
The project finished on-time and on-budget. This project utilized one crew member and took about four hours to complete.
