Gutter Cleaning in Tampa
Being in Florida, people usually assume our landscaping is nothing but palm trees but most of us have at least one oak tree in our yard. These trees are great as they provide plenty of shade from the hot summer sun and help make our property a little more enjoyable.
The downside to oak trees and Florida maples is that they shed all their leaves every year. Usually, this doesn't matter if you don't have gutters, but if you do, we're sure you've had your gutters cleaned before. Cleaning gutters is something that can't be ignored for more than a year or two.
As leaves start to build up and pile on the roof, they begin to decompose. It's a breeding ground for bugs and insects, and as they make a home, they will start burrowing under your shingles. This will shorten the life span of your roof and could lead to costly leaks.
The problem with leaves overflowing the gutters will lead to costly repairs even quicker. As the leaves start to decompose, they'll absorb the water, which will add weight. If you go too long without cleaning your gutters, they will become clogged to the point of restricting all water flow. When this happens all the weight from debris and water will start to pull the support screws out of the house and lead to a complete failure.
Depending on how much of your roof is near or covered by trees, we recommend an annual cleaning, but you may be able to get away with a biannual gutter cleaning. So give us a call today for your free gutter cleaning quote.
