Gutter Maintenance Before and After a Storm

Even if you have purchased the best rain gutter and gutter guard system for your Delaware Valley home, the system could still fail if you do not perform routine maintenance before and after a storm. Before the start of storm season, you can count on Catalfano Brothers to clean your rain gutters and remove any debris that can block drains and downspouts.

Following a storm with high winds and intense rain, if you inspect your gutters every time, you’ll get the best performance and maximum protection from your investment. You should be prepared to get out the ladder and check all seamless rain gutters and guards. Gutter contractors, such as Catalfano Brothers, agree that preventative maintenance can extend the life of your gutter system. After serious storms, you may need to call in a gutter contractor, such as Catalfano Brothers, to remove any debris that may have fallen and blocked the flow of your gutters, or to patch any damaged sections. If you have newly sagging sections or leaks, you can save money in the long term by having Catalfano Brothers come out and do simple repairs or replace your current gutters with seamless gutters. Seamless gutters have less seams and possible leakage points than other rain gutters, as they are formed from one continuous roll. Traditional gutters use aluminum pieces, which are attached on site and have visible seams and many possible leakage points.

It’s not a bad idea to watch the flow of water from your roof during a storm. That’s when you’ll see if your gutter installation was performed correctly and that the rain water is directed off the roof and away from your walls. You don’t want it pooling around your home foundations.

If your gutters routinely clog with leaves, twigs, or dirt and you don’t already have gutter guards, you might consider calling Catalfano Brothers to install them. Covers that can easily be fitted and removed can extend the life of your Delaware Valley home and prevent potentially damaging blocks, sags, and warping.

Catalfano Brothers has the skills necessary to protect or replace your gutter system at your Delaware Valley home. Call us today at 215-884-1266 to clean, inspect, or replace your gutters to ensure you are prepared both before and after a storm.
