Clogging keeps gutters and downspouts from doing their only job: to channel rain and snowmelt from the roof safely to the ground. Poor drainage can damage wood building elements, such as fascia boards and roof decking; ruin your landscaping; and suck the strength out of your foundations. Although ice dams can still occur with clean gutters, blockages increase the chances of their formation.
As the authority on residential and commercial roofs, Kidd-Luukko Corporation is the name you can trust to prevent gutter clogging. As we understand the interplay between roofing and gutter systems, we specialize in the following:
Fallen objects — like twigs, leaves, or pine needles — clog gutters and downspouts over time. While the rain can flush out some debris naturally, the rest may stay stuck. Even if you know your way around the ladder, it’s better to leave the job to professionals to avoid injury, property damage or both.
Scheduling regular gutter cleaning sessions with us ensures proper roof drainage at all times. In a region that gets rainfall throughout the year, setting up routine gutter checkups is responsible and prudent.
Repairing Issues Immediately
When left unaddressed for too long, gutter clogging can beget a new host of other problems. Blockages trap water, which, in turn, adds extra weight for your gutters to bear. The collective heft of debris and standing water can make them pull away from the fascia.
Like other roofing projects, fixing sagging gutters and downspouts is no job for do-it-yourselfers. Entrust your repair needs to our experienced crew to neutralize the hazards of the task, and finish work safely and efficiently.
Replacing Old Gutters
Replace your gutters if they are old and rusty, or too small for your home. Leaving a structurally unsound or improperly sized gutter system alone can be as detrimental as having nothing at all, if not worse.
Use our expertise in gutter installation to guarantee flawless workmanship the first time. If you roof needs servicing too, we can roll both projects into one to save you time, and minimize your expenditure. We offer financing options to make your bill more manageable.
