Gutters should be cleaned 2-4 times per year or after a heavy storm if your home or business property has a large number of trees. If you have gutter guards, this will reduce the amount you need to clean your gutters, but they still need to be maintained. We highly recommend that you hire a professional, like CS Collins to clean your gutters. It can be a very dangerous job and typically best if left up to a professional.
The Benefits of Gutter Cleaning
Most ladder related injuries occur within 2 feet of the ground. Falls are the second leading cause of unintentional death. They are especially dangerous for ages 55-79, but even more prevalent over the age of 80. When all of those age 65 and older are combined, falls account for 50% of all injury deaths.
When gutters and downspouts are blocked with pine needles, leaves and debris, the rainwater may not drain correctly. If the water overflows from your gutters it can cause water damage to your home or business. This is also why gutter guards are helpful.
Clogged gutters give rainwater nowhere to run. If water continues to flood over, it can lead to a rotten or leaky roof.
Gutters clogged with debris can make desirable homes for rodents, birds and insects. The last thing you want is a pest infestation in your home or business!
Cleaning your gutters prevents debris, pine needles and leaves from accumulating in your gutters and clogging up the system. It will help prevent expensive projects down the road. Taking preventative measures can help minimize the damage that could happen to your roof or home.

Why are Our Gutters Better?
We use premium material. Most aluminum gutters have an average thickness between .019 and .027 gauge. Ours are .027 gauge. Often contractors, builders and other gutter companies use thinner gutters because they are more cost effective for them but less desirable for you. These cheaper gutters will warp, dent and sag more readily over time. We know you do not want a flimsy gutter system that will be prone to leaks and issues. At CS Collins Seamless Gutters, we only install premium grade .027 gauged aluminum gutters that are more durable and longer lasting.
