Gutter Cleaning Services
Veteran-owned and operated, we provide professional and dependable gutter repair, installation, and cleaning services to our clients throughout the greater Chicagoland area.
Cleaning your gutters is essential to maintaining your home’s beauty and value. When gutters become full of leaves, twigs, and debris, they can tear away from the structure of your home. This can lead to fascia and soffit rot. When water overflows, it can seep in behind the gutter, causing severe water damage.
As a busy homeowner, it’s easy for gutter cleaning and repairs to take a backseat to the more urgent issues around your home. That’s why Greater Chicago Handyman provides gutter cleaning and shield installation services. We offer skilled and dependable gutter services with more than 15 years of experience. And as Military Veterans, we bring extreme attention to detail and professionalism in all that we do.
The gutters on a home are designed to collect rainwater from the roof and carry it away from the foundation through the downspouts. They can only do this when they are clear of leaves and other debris, which can clog them and cause water to overflow.
When the water has nowhere to go, it will fill the gutters and eventually overflow onto the foundation. All it takes is one area to cause significant issues, causing damage to the shingles, roof, exterior, and interior of your home. However, regular gutter cleaning can prevent these costly repairs, saving you hundreds, even thousands of dollars.
Regular gutter cleaning helps prevent:
- Rotten wood
- Foundation damage
- Mold and mildew growth
- Flooded basements
- Landscape destruction
- Mosquito, termite, and roach infestations
Greater Chicago Handyman handles more than gutter cleaning and repairs. While on the job, we will take care of any damage to the fascia, soffits, siding, fencing, and other areas that may have sustained damage.
It’s obviously not practical to get up on a ladder and check your gutters weekly. So how do you ensure your gutters are clean?
We generally recommend having your gutters professionally cleaned twice a year, once in the fall and again in the spring. However, various factors can affect when you have them cleaned. You may want to ensure your gutters are clear if you have multiple trees around your home after a big storm. Leaves, branches, and other debris may have dislodged during the storm.
As you can see, several problems can occur if gutters are not cleaned regularly. Some homeowners might not be able to safely and effectively complete the project on their own. If many trees hang over the home, it can be challenging to access the gutters safely.
DIY gutter cleaning is often dangerous. Instead of trying it yourself, trust Greater Chicago Handyman to help. Maintaining the exterior of your home is essential, but having the time, tools, and ability can be a challenge.
