Gutter Cleaning Birmingham

Are your gutters spilling over the edge instead of out the downspout?

Do you suspect critters are using your gutters as their new den?

Leaves and other debris become lodged in the downspouts and forming a blockage.


Why You MUST Clean Your Gutters

Cleaning your gutters is absolutely essential because when they become dirty and clogged, they lose their ability to safeguard your home. Once a gutter becomes blocked, rainwater cannot flow through it.

Instead, the rain overflows from the sides of the gutters, causing erosion around your property and pooling against your foundations—precisely the opposite of what gutters are designed to prevent.

In fact, poorly functioning gutters can be even more detrimental to your property than having no gutters at all.

In addition to hindering water flow, debris adds weight to your gutters. As the weight of wet debris increases, it causes gutters to detach from the soffit and fascia, breaking their brackets and becoming hazardous when they fall.

If your gutters are made of vinyl or have traditional seams, they may develop gaps at these seam points, allowing water to rush through and exacerbating the gaps.

Dirty gutters inevitably lead to damaged gutters, which, in turn, result in costly foundation and roof repairs.

The weather patterns in Birmingham are evolving, and Jefferson County encourages you to be prepared. Apart from keeping your gutters clean, there are various ways to prepare for storms.

Gutter Tune-Up

Our comprehensive tune-up service encompasses the following:

  1. Thoroughly clearing all leaves and debris from your gutters and downspouts.
  2. Applying seals to corners to reduce the risk of leaks.
  3. Installing additional hangers to the gutters when necessary.

It goes beyond a mere cleaning; this is our standard level of ‘gutter maintenance.’

Why Gutter Cleaning Shouldn’t Be a DIY Endeavor

Cleaning your gutters on your own is not advisable. This dreaded task can be hazardous and challenging without the appropriate tools. Balancing on a ladder near your eaves with a garden hose, sprayer, and poles can be risky when dealing with a one-story house. It becomes potentially life-threatening when dealing with a two-story house. Don’t jeopardize your safety! Leave the job to our trained professionals. Gutter Tex’s team is equipped with the necessary training and tools to perform the task safely. Our OSHA-rated personal protective equipment shields us from falls. It’s not worth saving a few hundred dollars if it puts your spine or neck at risk.

How Often Should Gutter Cleaning Be Done?

We recommend scheduling gutter cleaning twice a year, typically in the spring and fall. However, the frequency of gutter cleaning depends on various factors, including the trees in your yard and whether you’ve installed gutter guards.

If, like many Birmingham homeowners, you have live oak or burr oak trees in your front yard, there’s something you should know. You may need to clean your gutters more often. While these trees offer excellent shade and withstand storms well, they are prolific shedders.

Sweetgum trees can also pose challenges. Those spiky ball fruits they produce tend to find their way everywhere, including your gutters.

Do you have maple trees? The helicopter seeds they drop are likely to end up in your gutters as well.

Lastly, having pine trees around your home often leads to faster accumulation of gutter debris. Pine needles may be small individually, but they tend to clump together and block your gutter tracks.

If you invest in gutter guards, you can typically reduce the frequency to once a year. However, it’s essential to note that no gutter guards can prevent all clogs. Birmingham’s severe weather can force even small debris into the tiniest openings. Still, gutter guards do help keep your gutters cleaner and reduce the occurrence of clogs.

What is the Price of Gutter Cleaning?

The cost of professional gutter cleaning is often more budget-friendly than you might imagine. Since every home and gutter system is distinct, we provide complimentary on-site estimates.

Several factors influence the price of gutter cleaning, including:

  1. Whether it’s a single-story or two-story property.
  2. The total length of the gutter runs.
  3. The quantity of debris present within the gutter system.
