The operation of your home’s gutter system is very important to its well being. Gutters serve to direct the flow of rainwater away from your roof, walls, foundation, and landscape. Westchester Gutter Cleaning has been providing gutter maintenance to lower Westchester for over 18 years. So, whether you’re looking for gutter repair in Patterson, gutter repair in Bedford or gutter repair in Hawthorne, as well as gutter cleaning in Carmel and all Westchester and Putnam areas, we are the company that gets the job done right at an affordable price.
When your gutters are neglected and clogged with leaves, sticks and other debris, not only is damage very likely to occur to your home’s interior and exterior but neglected gutters also make nice homes for rodents, pests, mold, and insect infestations. If gutter maintenance is left by the wayside, it can potentially cost hundreds or thousands of dollars.
So, how often should gutters be cleaned? We recommend cleaning your gutters in the spring and fall, right after the seasonal debris has come down. It largely depends on where you live, how heavily wooded the area around your property is, and what types of trees surround your property. For some property owners, it may be more than twice per year because certain trees shed leaves and pines on a regular basis. In these cases, property owners usually choose to invest in gutter covers and screening to minimize the number of cleanings per year. These coverings and screens do lessen the number of cleanings but in our experience, we have yet to find any product on the market that completely eliminates the need for cleanings.
Gutter cleaning and gutter maintenance should be on everyone’s “to get done list”, at least once to twice per year, depending on their environment. We are of the opinion that it is best to have a professional handle any and all work on extension ladders. This type of work is extremely dangerous. According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission, falls from ladders sent more than 280,000 Americans to hospital emergency rooms in 2018. As professionals, we have the training, the gear and, more importantly, the experience to work up high on ladders. Another very important consideration is, as professionals, we know what we’re looking at and can stop a problem before it gets worse. Gutter maintenance is measured in pennies, and repairs and replacement are measured in dollars. Westchester Gutter Cleaning’s main business is providing Westchester and Putnam property owners with peace of mind.
