“My gutters don’t need to be re-nailed. I can tell from the ground that they are secure to the fascia board”. The truth is, most of the time when gutters pull away from your home, they are actually tilting forward, allowing water behind your gutters, while appearing from the ground to be tightly secured. Take a look at the pictures below taken at a gutter cleaning we performed in Germantown, MD. From underneath the gutters appear to be secure to the fascia, but from above you can see that they have actually pulled away from the fascia several inches. If this issue had not been caught early by our technician, it would have led to costly repairs for this homeowner in the future.
When you become a client of GutterMaid, you may think you are hiring a company to simply clean your gutters, but that is just part of what we do. We understand that homeowners often times have problems they believe are related to clogged gutters. However, that is sometimes just part of the issue. Our job is to not only clean your gutters but to check, fix, and report on other areas critical to the waterproofing of your home, such as your gutters, roof shingles, and flashing.
