Gutter cleaning is an integral part of maintaining your home. As a busy homeowner, we know gutter cleaning is probably at the bottom of your list of things you want to think about. However, cleaning your gutters at a minimum of once every fall is very important in making sure your house remains free of problems from water damage.
Clogged gutters can wreak havoc with the natural drainage of water away from your home. This can result in damage to fascia, soffit, roofing, or unwanted leaks. Additionally, water damage can ruin the very foundation of your home—something you NEVER want to happen.
Benefits of gutter cleaning include:
– prevent water damage to your home
– avoid nesting areas for termites, birds, mosquitoes, and other insects
– prevent destruction of expensive landscaping
– maintain value and beauty of your home
This fall, let Recon take care of your gutters, and your home.

Below is a short video showing a typical problem for many New England homeowners: tall trees surrounding your property. While it may seem that the gutters on a 3-story home wouldn’t necessarily need to be cleaned out, this can in fact cause problems if leaves and debris from surrounding trees clog the gutters and downspouts. If the water flow is obstructed, this can lead to major problems, including basement flooding.
That is why we recommend cleaning your gutters at least once a year, even on 3-story homes. Call us today at 617-924-1133 to schedule your gutter cleaning.
