Routine gutter maintenance is critically important to properly direct rain or condensate water into a drain or downspout. The main goal of rain gutters and downspouts is to channel water away from your roof and building foundation. When working properly, gutters are very effective at doing their job. However, if a gutter gets clogged, it can completely stop the drainage.

Why A Clogged Rain Gutter Is Such A Big Problem?

Overflowing Water Damage:

Overflowing water damage can result in excessive repairs and even premature replacement of your roof and exterior facade. In the event of rain, rainwater can easily overflow to walls, fascia board, roof, patios, and basement.  As a result, there may be water intrusion and leaks inside your building or house. In addition, overflowing water can cause damage to walls, windows, and fascia board.  This damage can result in very expansive repairs to fix unsightly stains, mold growth, rotting, and cracking. 

Gutter Damage & Potential Collapse:

During heavy rains, water captured by your rain gutters has no place to go if they are not functioning properly. That water together with accumulated dirt, leaves, and debris can add up to hundreds of pounds of weight. Not hard to imagine, if you know just one gallon of water weighs 8.3 pounds. This heavyweight can easily bend your gutters or totally detach them from your roof.

Breeding Hot Spot for Unwanted Parasites:

Clogged gutters can provide the perfect environment for unwanted pests. Insects, birds, and even rodents are attracted to the abundant food and moisture found inside debris-filled gutters. Clogged gutters can easily become a breeding ground for a number of pests including bees, wasps, mice, squirrels, mosquitos, earwigs, carpenter ants, earthworms, and birds.

It’s not uncommon to find one of these pests entering the interior of your home through a small opening. If you have any holes or cracks,  an unwelcome guest may pay you a visit.   

Is A Fire Hazard:

Accumulation of pine needles and leaves forms combustible debris. This fire hazard is especially dangerous in dry areas common in California. Help prevent wildfires by keeping your gutters clear of any flammable dust and debris.  

How Often Should Rain Gutters Be Cleaned?

Most homeowners neglect routine maintenance chores. We know from experience that clogged gutters should not be put off. We want to encourage you to resist the urge in putting off this important chore. 

Typically, rain gutters should be cleaned and inspected at least once a year. 

Every six months if your property is surrounded by tall trees or exposed to wind-driven debris.  

Clean Gutters Yourself Or Hire?

Most Do-it-yourselfers are tempted to do home improvement work themselves but please beware. Any work involving ladders can be very dangerous. According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission, 240,000 Americans went to the emergency room in one year period due to falls from ladders {1}. If you are not comfortable working on ladders, or your ladder is unsafe, hire a professional to do gutter cleaning for you.  

How Much Does Gutter Cleaning Cost?

The cost of cleaning rain gutters depends on the square footage of your house and job difficulty. If your property is visible on google maps, we can get you an estimate over the phone. If not we can schedule a job walk with our estimator. Kindly call our offices during business hours for quick but accurate quotes and convenient scheduling.

Alternative Rain Gutter Services:

Gutter Screen Installation:

It’s highly recommended to install screens on your rain gutters if there are tall trees next to your house. Gutter screens can be a cost-effective way to prevent debris from clogging downspouts. Routine gutter cleaning can be reduced from biannual to annual service. During the annual service, RayAccess workers will clean the screens and remove small debris or dust that fell through.

Gutter Repair:

It’s required that a rain gutter is leveled with a slight slope towards its drain or spout. Misalignment would direct water to the wrong end or middle of the rain gutter creating a water overflow problem. After cleaning, our specialists will identify any potential issues. In some cases, gutter sections or spouts need to be realigned, repaired, re-sealed, or replaced. The most common gutter and spout damages are misalignments, bending, corrosion, and leaking joints. Fortunately, these issues are absolutely repairable by the RayAccess crew.

  • I'm really happy with work RayAccess did for us on painting the exterior of Loews atrium. At first, I though it would be a nightmare project because of old paint condition and difficult access to some areas. But it turned out to be a very professional and smooth job! Thank you.
