Gutters are often forgotten during regular home maintenance. Their purpose is to capture and direct rain run-off away from the house’s walls and foundation.
But with time, dirt, leaves, and debris start to clog them, and without proper cleaning, these clogs can result in serious damage and turn into any homeowner’s worst nightmare.
It is thus recommended that you do routine gutter inspections and clean out at least two times a year, in the fall and early spring before the rains.
What happens during a gutter inspection?
While you can inspect on your own, it is vital to hire gutter inspection services. With a professional’s help, you will not only be able to know the condition of your gutters, but you will also learn:
- If there are any gutter seam leakages
- The life expectancy of your gutters
- If the gutters have a proper sealant
- Other mistakes that might have been made during installation and how to rectify the mistakes
During the inspection, the inspector will first clear out all the debris and leaves. He will then check for signs of leaks, gutter rust and cracks, and blackboard wood rotting on the gutter system.
He will also examine the condition of your gutter guard and check for any signs of gaps, clogs, and pest inhabitation.
In most cases, if your gutter guard is in a good state, the probability is your gutter system might also be in good condition.
But this can only be verified by a professional inspector.
