Gutter Debris in Dallas | Best Pick Reports
While gutters serve to direct rain water away from your foundation and reduce damage, they frequently collect debris. This debris lands on the roof during heavy wind or falls from trees above the roof line.
Gutter cleaning should be done a minimum of twice a year: once in spring, after heavy storms and flowering plants have spread their seeds, pods, and buds; and once in late fall, after the leaves have fallen from the trees. Dirty gutters may lead to undermined driveways and walkways; damaged fascia, soffit, or outside walls; termite colonies; cracked foundations; leaking roofs; and mosquitoes. In addition, in winter, clogged gutters can contribute to the roof damage caused by ice dams.
