When your gutters are clean and clear they not only look more aesthetically pleasing, but they are able to control the flow of water from your roof away from your home. Gutters full of leaves, sticks, dirt, and other debris will clog your gutter system and will prevent the water from being directed away from your home. Instead the gutter will simply overflow and the water will run down the side of your home leading to many problems.
Without the proper equipment, cleaning your own gutters can be dangerous from the use of a ladder and walking on your roof. Let us here at Veteran Exteriors handle all of that for you. Our trained staff has the experience and equipment to properly clean your gutters so your home is protected.
Insect Breeding Grounds: Standing water is a paradise for multiple species of insects inclusing mosquitoes, wasps, and even termites. These insects can build a home in your flooded gutters and eventually make their way into your home.
Foundation Failure: Pooling water means the soil underneath the water is saturated, and putting an enormous amount of pressure on the side of your home. Over time, this pressure can cause the lower walls to push inward or crack.
Second, when the water drains off, it may erode the soil, causing the foundation to settle. This can result in uneven floors or cracks in walls and chimneys. Even if a collapse is not about to happen, water will enter the home through those cracks and cause mold growth.
Mold & Mildew: Standing water and excess moisture can lead to a breeding ground for mold and mildew. This growth can spread from your gutters to your siding and more.
Our gutter cleaning service includes cleaning your gutters of leaves, insects, nests, sticks, and other obstructions, bagging the waste, and neatly disposing of it in your own trash can or other designated area. Once cleaned, the entire system is flushed to ensure that the gutter and downspouts are fully functional.
Our Deluxe Gutter Cleaning includes everything in the Basic Gutter Cleaning plus we will scrub the outside of your front gutters (sides facing the road) to remove the green or black and brighten them up. We utilize professional grade products to remove the discolorations from the outside of your gutters which greatly enhances the curb appeal!

These dark, vertical streaks which are commonly found on the outsides of gutters are known as tiger stripes. And unlike some dirty areas of your home which are not too noticeable, tiger stripes tend to draw the eye toward the problem because they usually contrast sharply with the dark shingled roof and lighter-colored siding.
Let us remove those unsightly tiger stripes for you as an add-on to any pressure washing service or gutter cleaning.
