Why Your Clogged Gutters Could Cost You THOUSANDS in Repairs

Living in the PNW, we know what it’s like to experience rain. Most of us also know what it’s like to accidentally walk under an overflowing gutter, drenching us on the spot. Though clogged gutters can be an inconvenience, they also pose a huge danger to our home’s structural integrity.

When water spills over from a gutter, it’s easy to forget about. After all, it’s going into the ground just like the rest of the rain right? WRONG. Overflowing gutters concentrate water in the area directly around our homes. This concentration of water can then seep into the foundation, causing structural damage requiring repairs which cost an upwards of $10,000. If you have a basement, there is also a chance the water can flood it too, causing untold water damage and mold growth. 

So how often should I get my gutters cleaned?

Most experts agree it’s best to clean your gutters twice a year – once in the spring and once in the fall. It’s important to clean your gutters in the fall since this is the time of year when the most debris will enter the gutters. We want to ensure water can pass freely throughout the entire winter, if not, water trapped in the gutters can freeze, causing the gutters to expand and break. It’s also important to get a cleaning in the spring because this is the time of year we experience the most rain, and as we discussed above, clogged gutters during this season can cause untold damage. At Bayside we go above and beyond to not only clean out the interior of the gutter, but also whiten and clean the exterior of the gutter to leave it looking brand new. If mold or algae is not cleaned properly on the exterior of the gutter, it can leave permanent and unwanted stains. Overall, along with the costly repairs listed above, this reduces your property value and curbside appeal significantly.

With gutters being high up, requiring you to go up and down a ladder several times, there is a lot of opportunity to slip and fall. Though some of us are comfortable going through this process, there’s also a fair number of us who are not. At Bayside, our number one goal is to eliminate any stress you may have when it comes to exterior cleaning. We are professionals who take safety seriously with everything that we do.
