How often should our gutters be cleaned?

Your gutters and downspouts should be cleaned and the system checked at least once a year. The damage to your home from overflowing gutters can become quite expensive. Fascia, soffit, siding, windows, walls, basements, doors and foundations can all be damaged with over-flowing gutters. IMPORTANT FACT: In recent years, most homeowners’ insurance companies have dramatically tightened insurance claim regulations. If you file a claim of water damage in your basement, most insurance adjusters will check your gutters to see if they are clean. They consider cleaning your gutters as general maintenance of your home. If your gutters or downspouts are not properly cleaned, chances are your basement water damage claim may be legally denied.
