A: Gutters are designed to prevent and divert water from damaging and entering your roof, house and foundation.

Depending on the time of the year, different problems can occur when debris has collected in the system.

 Fall is in the air!

 Pumpkins, apple cider, cozy sweaters. There is no better season to take a peaceful walk knowing in the back of your mind that you’ve had your gutters cleaned and inspected by Guaranteed Gutters.


 Ok, seriously though. Autumn is awesome. We don’t want you to miss out on a peaceful walk because your gutters are clogged.

 Avoid Critters

 As summer comes to an end and winter slowly approaches, your clogged system may be featured on the next episode of House Hunters: small critters edition. Birds, squirrels, chipmunks, bugs etc..

Before this becomes a problem we encourage you to complete your gutter maintenance in the fall.

If you still have unplanned visits, you may want to consider Gutter Guards.

 Avoiding Water/Ice Damage


 Autumn can have inconsistent weather. Depending on where you live there may be hits of random rain or snow. If your system is clogged with debris, the water from rain showers or melting snow will have nowhere else to go but in your home. The damage to the interior of a house should be prevented at all times. 

During our Free Inspection we make it a priority to access the roofline along with the gutter system.

Avoid Mold

“Out of sight, out of mind” is not the way to go when it comes to bacteria build up. They are small but deadly. Not only do they affect the esthetics of the gutters but they can find there way in the interior of the roof and cause many health issues

If debris is left to build up, overtime, mold can begin to grow in the attic and compromise the strength of the roof!
