Gutter Cleaning Services

Having your gutters cleaned probably isn’t at the top of your favorite spring and fall activities list, but that doesn’t mean it’s not important. Gutters are designed to catch the rainwater that rolls down your roof so that it doesn’t trickle down the outer walls of your home. Once water is collected in your gutters, it’s redirected to a vertical pipe known as a downspout to safely lead it to a good drainage area. 

When your gutters or downspouts become clogged with debris, they can overflow onto your roof, causing damage to both your home and wallet.

A general rule of thumb is to have your gutters cleaned twice per year, usually in the fall and spring. In Portland, this is especially important due to higher-than-average rainfall. If you live in an area surrounded by trees or other foliage, you might even consider cleaning your gutters seasonally.

What if I Don’t Clean My Gutters Regularly?

Your gutters and downspouts are open to the great outdoors, which means they are constantly collecting dead leaves, twigs, bird nests and other debris. If these materials aren’t removed, rainwater won’t be able to pass through. With nowhere else to go, water will flow back onto your roof, leading to a whole host of problems that can be expensive to fix.

DIY vs. Professional Gutter Cleaning?

Despite the glamour, gutter cleaning can be a dangerous job. To be able to fully rid your gutters and downspouts of debris, you’ll need access to your home’s roof, either by ladder or by climbing out a window. When height is involved, there’s always a chance of injury.

In Portland especially, the wet climate can make your roof slippery, increasing the risk of falls. Simple, unexpected events like a gust of wind or a swarm of insects can cause you to lose your balance. 

Professional roofers are specially trained to reduce the risk of falls no matter the height or slant of your roof – and they have access to equipment that can help get the job done safer and faster. Plus, gutter cleaning provides the perfect opportunity for a roofing professional to inspect the current condition of your roof and make recommendations for proper roof maintenance. Roof Life offers these inspections at no cost or obligation to you.

I just want to say that among all the contractors I have had recently helping me with this old house, your group stand head and shoulders above all of them! Not only do my roofs look like they are brand new, my windows, gutters shrubs etc. were left in better condition! I have complete trust in recommending you and your wonderful employees to any and all who will listen. Bravo!

The first thing I want to say is that your crews were extremely efficient and pleasant to be around. I only had two questions during the course of the roof replacement and those questions were handled quickly by your office. I don’t think I could have had a job this size go as smoothly as this did with any other roofing contractor.
