Gutter Cleaning Problems Caused by clogged gutters
Many major problems can be avoided if we clean our gutters regularly. Build up in gutters can cause sagging gutters, which will throw off the pitch and cause water to drain improperly. Many people don't realize the amount of weight sitting in their spouts. In the winter any water sitting on the spouts will freeze and can ruin your gutters. Also a clogged downspout can cause water to run back under your roofline, causing damage and a very costly repair.
Q: What is the average roof size for a middle class home in the U.S?
A: 40 by 60 feet (2400 sq.ft) because it is bigger than the average floor size of 37 by 55 (2035 s.s ft)
The following prices can give you an idea of the cost to clean the gutters at your house. Prices may vary from the type of roof (asphalt shingles, hardwood, slate, tile, etc) and the amount of gutters and downspouts.
