Keeping Your Gutters in Good Shape

It’s that time of year again when leaves are falling and rain is pouring. If you’re like most homeowners, you probably don’t give your gutters a second thought – until they start overflowing and causing water damage to your home. Cleaning and maintaining your gutters may not be the most fun task on your to-do list, but it’s important in order to keep your home in tip-top shape.

Here are a few tips from the experts at DryTech Exteriors on how to clean and maintain your gutters:

1. Inspect your gutters regularly.

The best way to prevent problems is to inspect your gutters on a regular basis – at least once a month. Look for any cracks, holes, or rust spots that need to be repaired. Also, make sure that the downspouts are clear and free of debris.

2. Clean your gutters regularly.

Even if you don’t see any visible problems with your gutters, it’s important to clean them out on a regular basis. Leaves, twigs, and other debris can build up over time and cause problems – such as clogs – down the road.

3. Be careful when cleaning your gutters.

It’s important to be careful when cleaning your gutters so that you don’t damage them further. Use a soft-bristled brush or hose attachment to gently remove any debris that has built up in the gutters. Avoid using power washers or high-pressure hoses, as this can damage the gutters or loosen them from their mounts.

4. Call a professional if you need help.

Cleaning and maintaining your gutters can be a difficult and dangerous task – especially if you have a multi-story home. If you don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself, or if you don’t have the time, call a professional like DryTech Exteriors for help. We’re always happy to help our clients keep their homes in top condition!

I am very pleased with the quality of work of DryTech Exteriors. Matt, came out to give an estimate for a new roof. He actually was able to come out early to give the estimate. He was quick, professional and friendly. He was on time the scheduled day of work. 2 of my neighbors are using them now as well.

So glad we found this company! The recent strom damaged our roof. Brad from DryTech knocked on our door & explained he was looking at roofs in our neighborhood due to the storm damage. My husband is very cautious of companies that go door to door, but after speaking with Brad & learning they were a local company, we had our minds put at ease. He explained every part of the process & accommodated our busy schedules. Our insurance paid for the entire new roof. Good experience!

The appointment between our insurance company and Brad from drytech was Friday and we were just informed we are getting everything paid for. Our deductible isn't expensive. We were impressed at his professionalism and are excited that we got to pick our new roof color. When we moved in, we thought it needed a new color so this was a welcome hail storm for us!
