Hurricane season can be brutal in Southeast Louisiana. Even if we dodge the major bullets, chances are, by the end of the season, we’ve withstood at least a few storms, with all the leaves and debris accumulation that goes along with them. And your gutters have paid the price.
For proper gutter maintenance, you need to:
Clean them out, of course
Make sure your downspouts are working properly.
Check for holes and cracks in the caulking, as well as corrosion, sagging, bending and missing fasteners.
Verify that your gutters are firmly attached to your home.
Cut or trim overhanging tree branches.
As you might imagine, this requires a lot of time, effort, ladder-climbing, and sharp tools. If you have neither the time, inclination, nor coordination to handle all of this for yourself — or if your gutters are beyond help — check out these local services that offer cleaning, repair, and installation.
