Roof Gutter Cleaning

roof-gutter

The main purpose of gutters is to reroute the water that falls on your roof down to a large surface away from your home. With a properly installed gutter system, the siding of your home is protected, the windows and doors are protected, and the foundation will be kept dry and basements won’t flood.

Cleaning the gutters is something most homeowners would prefer not to do but when you consider all the benefits of cleaning the gutters, it certainly makes it worth the time and effort you put in it. In order for the gutter system to work correctly, you need to make sure that there are no leaves and debris inside. If the leaves and debris are allowed to dam up, then the gutters will overflow and travel to the structure of your home and begin to rot the wood. It will also rust any metal that it may touch.

How to Clean Rain Gutters

Gutters and downspouts must be free and clear of any debris, like leaves. Pooling of water in the gutter is no good for the gutter system or your home. You can hire a professional company to clean the gutters for you or you can save money and do it yourself.

If you have more than one story you may want to consider hiring a professional with gutter cleaning tools. And we can do that with ease, at the most competitive prices. Call us now!

DIY Gutter Cleaning

If you find that you can clean the gutters, below is a simple how-to in order to help.

  • If you have low-sloped roofs, see if you can blow off dry debris embedded inside the gutters using a leaf blower. Safety equipment you will need includes goggles and a dust mask to keep the dust from going into your face or nasal passage and use extreme caution. You could use a gutter cleaning kit that can attach to the leaf blower.
  • Blow the dry leaves and debris from the roof before you begin on the gutters. You can also use a rake to remove a lot of the debris on the roof as well. If you don’t start there, this debris will just end up in the gutter the next rain.
  • Use a plastic scoop to remove the debris from gutters that is wet and won’t blow out with the leaf blower.
  • Add gutter guards and leaf catches to your gutters after you are done. The gutters will still need to be cleaned on occasion because debris can still get into them and settle inside the gutters.
  • Using your plastic scoop or trowel and start at a drain outlet, toward the lower end of the gutters and work away from the outlet. The debris is easier to remove if it is slightly wet, otherwise it will just crumble..
  • Use a hose to blast water up the gutters with high force. Wash out the gutter toward the drain outlet. Be aware that if there is mud in the gutters, this water can splash the mud on the house so avoid it if you can.
  • Make sure that there are no obstructions in the drainpipes. Water should flow freely and if not, flush the water again. You may need to use a plumber’s auger, or snake to remove the debris from the bottom or through the top, depending on where the block is.

Rain Gutter Installation

One way you can improve the look and condition of your home is by a rain gutter installation. Having a good working gutter system on your home has many benefits. While it is an investment, the expense in the long run for repairs can far outweigh the cost of a new gutter system.

Assess Requirements Before Installation

Before you get started on a new gutter installation job, you should first assess your home to determine if it’s needed and if so, what would be the best choice for you. If you haven’t done a gutter system replacement before, you may want to consider hiring a professional to do it for you or one that may allow you to assist so you can learn and possibly save yourself money. At Gutters & Windows, we have over a decade of experience in helping homeowners and business deal with all aspects of installation, repairs and maintenance of gutters.

Before you can begin the process of installing the gutters, you need to perform any repairs to your home that is necessary. It’s easier to do it before you hang the gutters than have to go back and try to do it later.

DIY Installation Process

However, if you intend starting the new rain gutter installation process, you can do that on your own, or call in one of our professionals for an affordable option. Here are a few things you need to consider first:

  • Select the right gutters for your home. You will need to choose the right material the gutters are made of.  Look for a gutter that is light weight but also made from strong enough material for the climate.
  • Calculate the pitch of the roof. You will want to calculate the pitch before you begin. Climb up on the ladder and measure very accurately. While gutters seem like they are even, they have a certain gradient slope of about one inch. This will make the water flow easier and help to prevent any debris from getting caught up in the system. You can check the level to determine the proper pitch.
  • Proper spacing is important. Gutters need to be hung on the roof using clips to hold them in place. Sparking properly will ensure that no gutters will end up sagging and hang loose after the job is done. If not, the water will begin to accumulate at the dip and cause problems.
  • Proper placing of the gutters is also important. Most of the time, gutters are placed underneath the edge of the roof since water drips off the edge. However, this is not always the right place for gutters to hand because if they are too close to the edge, the roof edge will begin to absorb some water and this can cause the roof to bloat and cause irreversible damage to your home. You can have a professional come out and help you to locate the best place for your gutters.

Seamless Gutters can be the best option, if hung properly. The goal is to hang the gutters correctly using the same materials throughout. It’s also important to pay close attention to the corners so that the seams run together and seem flawless. Gutters will need to be welded or soldered together for a durable bond. You want to avoid straining the connections while you are joining them together and leave no areas where water can drip through and cause problems.

Rain gutter installation is a process that requires time and expertise. Always ask a professional if you have any questions and always use the proper tools throughout the process.

House Gutters

house-gutters

House gutters are available in a variety of both shapes and sizes. This variety is called profiles. The open gutter is the commonly used gutter variant, used on homes all around the world. These open gutters are available in standard sizes, so homeowners can install them without the help of professionals. These types of gutters are also available in a roll of seamless gutters that will need to be professionally installed.

The most common sizes available for residential gutters are five inches and six inches. Gutters can be made of steel, vinyl, aluminum, zinc, or even copper and come in the standard “K” style. The five inch K-style gutter uses a 2×3 inch downspout that normally comes with the gutter. If you need a larger gutter system for your home, then the six inch K-style gutter is the right choice as it uses the 3×4 inch downspout.

Just 1 foot of the 5” K-style gutter can hold 1.3 gallons of water. While 1 foot of the 6” K-style gutter can hold nearly 2 gallons of water. If you need commercial guttering, box gutters can go up to seven or eight inches, larger if you need them. The larger the gutter, the more water they can hold.

Installing the Gutters Yourself 

There are a few factors that affect the overall amount of guttering you will need; the pitch of your roof, the cut-outs you will need for dormers, gables, or perpendicular roof lines, and what type of material you have covering your roof. If you have experience doing the roof yourself, you could install your new gutter system and slope it correctly down to the downspouts with ease.

It’s always a good idea to consult with a professional before you make an investment on your gutter system if you have a complex roof line. If you have tiles or shakes that cover your roof, you may also want to rely on the knowledge of a professional as well.

Prices and Materials for Gutters

When pricing the cost of guttering material, it’s important to note that the actual final cost will depend on what type of gutter you want to use. There are four choices:

  1. Vinyl gutters – These are the least expensive gutters to install on your home. You can expect to pay $4-$8 per piece.
  2. Aluminum gutters – These gutters are a step up from the vinyl in quality however they are going to be more expensive. You can expect to pay $6 – $12 per piece.
  3. Steel gutters – These gutters are higher quality than the vinyl and aluminum and because of this, you can expect to pay $11 – $33 per piece, sometimes more.
  4. Copper gutters – These gutters are the highest quality that you can purchase in gutters. You can expect to pay $40 – $100 or more per piece.

When purchasing your new gutter system, you will want to purchase downspout extensions too. Like the gutters, these downspouts can also be expensive depending on the type of material they are made of. They can be as low as $6 or as high as $90+.

Professional House Gutter Installation

If you want to hire a professional to install house gutters for you, here are a few tips to help you make the right choice.

  • Look for a professional licensed gutter installer that offers seamless gutters and possibly any solution for leaf protection, such as screens covering the gutters or gutter guards or gutter covers.
  • Schedules a home visit
  • Always verify that they are bonded/insured – ask to see proof
  • Find out how long they have been in business
  • Obtain a written estimate
  • Check out references – find out what former customers have to say about their quality of work
  • Verify the business through your local Better Business Bureau

Gutter Cleaning and Repair

damaged-gutter

Gutter cleaning and repair is a necessity and that is why it is important to get it done at least in spring and at fall. However, it is not recommended that you clean or repair rain gutters while being on the roof. It can be dangerous and that is why hiring the services of professionals from Gutters & Windows can make the difference. Though we can assist you at any step of the procedure, if you plan on trying to do it all on your own, we’d recommend using all safety procedure and completing the cleaning step-by-step.

DIY Gutter Cleaning

To start with, you should use a sturdy and reliable ladder. You should also avoid standing on the top of the ladder and make sure that you don’t go over the side rail. You should use a durable bucket to collect the dust and the debris. It is best to use another bucket for your tools. Attach these two buckets with wire hooks to the ladder and make sure that the space below is actually clear.

So, if you want to clear the gutter from a ladder, let us walk you through step-by-step guide. Follow these:

# 1: Clean the gutter close to a convenient downspout

# 2: Make sure to remove the larger debris using a trowel as well as dump them in the bucket

# 3: In order to clean finer materials you want to flush the length of the gutter with a hosepipe but make sure you start at the end of the other downspout. You can also use a cleaning attachment for gutter. If the water fails to drain you should again check the downspout.

If you still can’t drain the water the downspout might actually be clogged and that’s something that you need to check. In order to do so, follow these:

  1. Check the end of the drain. If the downspout goes and empties under the ground you can remove it from the pipe.
  2. Use a nozzle on the hosepipe and lock it down with the highest possible pressure in order to blast the clog out of the downspout. If this fails, you should use a specialized snake tool for plumbers.
  3. Once you are done, you have to put back the the downspout, flush the while gutter one more time and clean the strainers.

Gutter Repair and Maintenance

# 1: If there is water which hasn’t yet been flushed, you might have to slope the gutter. The length of the gutter should actually slope at least with quarter of an inch for each 10 feet that you count towards the downspout. You should detach the clips or hangers and again adjust the gutter enough in order for the water to drain away properly.

# 2: you should also inspect the sections as well as the downspouts in order to determine whether or not there is obvious damage or any kind of missing parts. Some of the hangers for support should be spaced no more than 2 feet away from each other.

In order to replace or to add additional hangers you need to install a screw hanger by marking the actual and relevant position of the gutter, drill the house in the lip and fascia of the gutter and drive the screw into the ferrule through the holes you drilled.

There is also screw-in and hidden solutions and you might want to follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer, even though most of them are attached through the rear part.

# 3: repair leaks in the gutter. You want to make sure that the lengths of the gutter are pressed tightly against one another and run some on both of the sides of all of the joints. You can use sealant in order to repair leaks resulting on the cap ends. If you want to repair any of the gaping holes, you need to ask a representative about certain products.

# 4: You should apply touch-up paint in order to cover certain blemishes should you want to.

However, if you need assistance at any step of the process, give us a call and we’ll come and take it on from there. Call us today to get further information about our gutter cleaning and repair services.

Gutter Cleaning Service

gutter-cleaning-service

Gutter cleaning is a prerequisite of having a secure home. You certainly don’t want water damage to affect the foundation or the exterior of the home.

Now, if you have a gutter cleaning service or contractor to handle debris removal, this is something particularly beneficial than trying to do it on your own. You need to get this task done with the minimum aggravation.

That is why it is important to work with a licensed company such as Gutters & Windows. We have over 10 years of experience and expertise in gutter cleaning and are one of the leading services in California. With this in mind, our skilled professional is likely to finish the entire task in no more than 5-7 hours which would suggest that it’s usually a matter of a day’s work. Even some large-scale projects which would require a lot more effort, shouldn’t take more than let’s say 3 days on average to get completed. There are many gutter companies which would use standard calculation techniques for the final cost but we offer one of the most affordable pricing and gutter cleaning solutions.

Prices and Cost of Gutter Cleaning

Usually the price is going to range about $1 per linear foot on buildings with one story and $2 for buildings with two stories. There is also another formula which takes advantage of the total square foot area. There are a few factors that need to be considered by Gutter Cleaning Service for the overall process:

  1. The height of the house: this is something very important. Based on height, the company is going to determine the price. Generally the more stories you have the more expensive the price would get because of the arising complications and the need to use additional safety equipment.
  2. The slant of the roof: if you have a tilted roof, the cleaning of the gutter is likely to cost you more. This is because the professionals would have to use a ladder all the time and there is a larger risk for their health.
  3. Size: You already know that the bigger size means more money for gutter cleaning – it’s as simple as that.
  4. Condition: now, keep in mind that if you subscribe for a regular cleaning, the amount that you will pay is going to be substantially smaller. On the other hand, if the condition of your gutters is terrible this is going to require more work and is going to cost you more.
  5. Extra Services: There are certain extra gutter services which could quickly amount to the total price. For instance, if you want to get your screens cleaned as well or other additional perks, you will likely have to pay an additional fee so make sure that you choose wisely when it comes to it.
  6. Seasonal Discounts: certain companies are going to go ahead and offer comprehensive seasonal discounts which are pretty neat. If you manage to find service providers of the kind this could save you quite a lot of money.
  7. Residential or Commercial: the cost for commercial cleaning is usually cheaper because of the discount for larger amounts of cleaning space. This could potentially save a significant amount, especially if you manage to negotiate a fair and suitable discount.

With too much pressure, you could even tear off the gutters currently on your home due to the debris that is already lodged. Cleaning your gutters is cheaper than replacing them so you want to do it right and that is why its’ important to leave it to the professionals.

Gutter Replacement

new-gutter2

If you notice that your gutters are beginning to show signs of damage you, this could lead to a dilemma whether to replace or repair them. In a lot of the situations installing new gutters is going to be more beneficial in the long run as repair wouldn’t last for long anyways. Furthermore, the weather is capable of eroding the exterior parts of the house quite fast. With this in mind, if you go ahead and include a gutter guard system, it is going to ensure that the new gutters last longer.

Signs of Gutter Damage

If you are figuring out what to do, you might want to consider gutter replacement if:

  • If you notice leaky corners
  • If you see water overflow causing stains
  • If you see rust on the steel gutter solutions
  • If the joints are beginning to pull apart
  • If the guts are sagging apart from your house
  • If they are filled with dirt and leaves
  • If you see water in other parts of your home like the basement, for instance
  • If they look worn out and detract from the roof
  • If you consider replacing your roof

Keep in mind that gutters have a very important job of keeping the rain away from your home. This is going to protect the overall appeal of your house as well as the foundation. While it may seem like a good idea to opt for gutter replacement, it is going to turn out more expensive than getting it repaired. However, gutter replacements still makes for a better investment as properly installed gutter systems can easily last for about 20 to 30 years.

Cleaning and Maintenance

However, this doesn’t mean that they don’t need maintenance and repairs. The first thing that you need to consider is cleaning them thoroughly. However, a lot of the issues could be replaced and yet sometimes the best option is to go ahead and replace the whole thing. There are two factors which are going to determine whether you need to replace or repair the gutter system. If you only have one or two weak spots, you can easily fix them. However, if the damage is significant and spread through the entire system, you need to consider replacing them as if you repair them it’s going to come back causing a lot more issues.

If you don’t feel like taking this important decision on your own, you can call a professional to evaluate the condition of gutters. That’s why it would be appropriate if you called a few gutter services and ask for multiple quotes. Compare the evaluation and cost before deciding to work with Gutters & Windows. We are one of the leading services in California, working on finding cost-effective gutter replacement solutions for businesses and homeowners.

Common Gutter Issues

Now, some gutters are particularly easy in terms of design. With this in mind, we want to provide you with a few problems and their solutions.

  1. Blockage. If your gutters don’t let the water through, the damage is most likely to be caused by clogging with debris and leaves. If you notice water marks under the gutter or pooling of water close to the foundation of the house, it’s a sure sign of blockage.
  2. Sagging. If you notice that your gutters are pulling away from your house or they are leaning down, you need to act incredibly quickly in order to avoid possible gutter collapse. Inspect the problem and make sure to replace the flawed hardware. You can also purchase some screw-in-spikes in order to keep the gutters tightly stacked to the wall. Furthermore, keep in mind that the sagging can be caused by excessive weight thanks to the built up debris so it’s definitely something to consider.
  3. Leaks. If you don’t have a blocked gutter yet leaks continue to exist, you are up against a broken gutter. However, sometimes the issue can lie within an opened joint which could easily be resealed. However, if the issue is because of corrosion, then you have no other choice but to replace it.
  4. Poor Pitch. If you notice that the water starts to pool in the gutters themselves and you have no blockage, it’s likely that the gutter is poorly pitched. This could have happened throughout the installation or at any other time. It can be hard to identify but it’s important to address it on the shortest notice.

Gutter Replacement

new-gutter

Gutters are one of the essential expenses that preserve your home from water damage. You can get the best guttering system for your home and you clean it on a regular basis. But with time, you might find that there is sagging or presence of crooks and dents that can affect the flow of the water. It’s time to consider a gutter replacement.

Checklist Of Signs Of Wear And Tear

Before you spend any money on replacements, first determine if you need the replacement to begin with. Here are some gutter replacement signs that can help you determine that:

  • First check the corners of the gutter system to see if there are any leaks or wear and tear that is obvious. If you see any leaks or tears, it’s time to consider a new system.
  • Observe the gutter system to determine if they are hung well. If you see the gutter is sagging in an area or dipping down from weight of debris, you may want to get it replaced.
  • After a rain, observe your gutters to determine if there is water flowing over the edge of the gutters. This could indicate that there is something clogging up the system or you may have a separation.

Is Replacement Needed?

Once you have determined that a replacement is necessary, you will most likely want to purchase an upgraded system from the one that you have in place currently. This will ensure that your gutter system will last longer and endure more weathering. Because there are so many gutter systems to choose from, here are a few helpful hints to select the right one for you. When figuring out how much your gutter system will cost you to replace, you can estimate it by this solution: a 1000 square foot home will need 100 feet of gutter line.  In order to determine how much this will cost, you will first need to determine what material your gutter system will be made from. Here are a few examples to choose from.

Copper Gutters – These are the most expensive of guttering systems however they are extremely good quality so you can ensure years of dependable gutters. If you want to replace your current gutters with copper ones, you will find that copper don’t rust and they last the longest of gutters. Copper has another benefit; they will expand and shrink to adjust to the temperatures. If you want to use copper gutters, you can expect to pay anywhere from $12.00 to $25.00 per linear foot. So if you need 100 square foot of gutters around your home, you can expect to pay anywhere between $1500 and $3,000 which also includes the cost of labor.

Aluminum is another choice in gutter systems. Aluminum is the most often chosen because the material to make gutters from aluminum is more affordable than other materials. The only problem with using this type of gutter is that you can expect to maintain and repair them often because they are not capable of expanding and shrinking like copper. To estimate the cost of aluminum gutter replacement, you can figure it out by this: 100 square foot of aluminum gutter can range from $500 to $1,200 which also includes the cost of labor so that equals to about $4 to $9 per linear foot.

Vinyl gutters, also known as PVC gutters are very affordable and chosen by those who want to do the gutter system themselves. These gutters are light weight so they are manageable. To install vinyl gutters is not going to be complicated or expensive. Before you choose these gutters, consider where you live because the climates can affect how long the gutters will last. When put through harsh climates, these gutters can chip and break. If the weather is warmer most of the time, vinyl is the way to go. You can expect to pay $3.00 to $5.00 per linear foot so it would cost $400 to $600 to replace 100 square feet of gutters.

Steel gutters are another option for gutters. Steel is the strongest material you can buy for gutter systems. If you live in a climate with harsh temperatures that becomes extremely cold, then steel may be the best choice. Steel is somewhat expensive, equaling to about $8.00 to $10.00 per linear foot which could run you between $900 and $1,200 to do 100 square feet of gutter. This estimate includes labor and other costs.

You could go with the system that you are currently using, just replace it with new materials or you can choose from another option as mentioned above. The point is to replacement it with a gutter system that will last even longer than what you currently has on now.
