  • What will happen if i dont clean my roof gutters and they get clogged?
    When the gutters become clogged, the water does not flow through to the down pipes and get directed away from your property. Instead it overflows over the front or back of the gutter. When the water overflows over the front of the gutter it is easy to notice, usually it erodes the soil below the leaking area, begins making black marks on the side of your home/building from the dirty water inside the gutter continually leaking. If the water in the gutter starts overflowing over the back of the gutter, it can leak inside your home, can create a wet mouldy look on your eves, potentially creating mould inside your home too. In addition if there is fascia boards/rafters behind the gutter, these will begin to rot.
  • Can you repair my roof while your here?
    We can do minor repairs, which include replacing or repairing broken tiles, sealing gaps with silicone, and other similar jobs.
  • Do you guys recommend putting on gutter guards or leaf guards?
    We do not recommend gutter guard for most locations. only time you should think of guard is if you are completely surrounded by trees. but keep in mind that your will need to still clean the gutters every 2-3 years. The best way to ensure clean and working gutters is by regular cleaning. If we put you on a regular cleaning schedule every 3-6 months it is a lot better for your gutters and a lot cheaper for you too. guard for a medium 4 bedroom home $6000 plus and will need to be cleaned every 2-3 years at $2000 but the soiling being left inside the gaurds and gutters for that long can overtime hurt your gutters. we will charge $250 twice a year so $500 which is a lot cheaper if you calculate it and you know your gutters are in safe hands.
  • What is the best way to clean your gutters without hiring a professional?
    To ensure the safest and best clean possible, it’s best to go with a professional gutter cleaner. If you want to get the job done on your own, then you will need: A sturdy ladder long enough to reach Long sleeved shirt, work pants, and rubber gloves for protection A small plastic scoop or any gutter cleaning tools you can buy A bucket or lawn clippings bag A garden hose if necessay You need to scoop out all the leaves, debris, and gunk that has built up in your gutters, discard everything into a bucket or onto a bag . Once everything is scooped out, wash your gutters down with a hose to pick up any small bits you may have missed. You should however be sure to be careful if attempting this on your own as there is the danger of slipping and falling, risking injuries or broken bones when attempting this on your own.
  • how do i know if my roof gutters are needing to be cleaned?
    Roof gutters will not work properly if they are clogged. Some good signs the gutters are clogged is the water overflowing from the top, water in your garden bed, water constantly leaking from the gutters when it is not raining or hasn’t rained recently. Water leaking inside your home/building, generally where the ceilings meet the walls. These are just the most obvious signs of clogged gutters, sometimes the signs are not so easy to spot, which is why we recommend cleaning the gutters atleast once a year.
