Gutter Cleaning Bethany Connecticut

Tree seeds germination in the gutters

20150728 105542gutter growing trees smallTree seeds and leaves had accumulated in the gutters to block the down spouts. This has resulted in water being retained in the gutters. With it being wet there was enough for the weed and tree seeds to germinate. The result is a green topping on the edge of the roof, but the real problem is the rain water is blocked from going into the gutter system so it over flows when it rains hard.

One close to the ladder is pretty high and when pulled out it helps pull out a good section of debris and leaves the gutter clean for a pretty good section. So this is a before picture to show what the situation is that I am there to solve.





Debris from cleaning the gutters

Here in the first picture you can see dirt and leaves that have fallen on the roof as the gutters are cleaned. The same sortof thing happens on the ground. So in this case a blower is used to get everything off the roof and fully clean out anything small still in the gutter trough. Then when the work is done up on the roof another pass with the blower is used to clean up stuff on the ground that has fallen.20150728 120608 cleaned gutters redid spikes small

The last picture shows the gutters cleaned, roof cleaned off and end of the gutter reattached. The gutter spikes had come lose from the facia and was starting to hand off the roof. You can see it in one of the first pictures but now it is reattached and secure.
