How to Conduct a Gutter Inspection Like a Pro

Your home’s gutters play a crucial role in keeping your home safe and dry by directing water runoff away from your roof, siding, landscaping and foundations. But to ensure that your gutters remain in good condition, they must be regularly inspected by a gutter installation and maintenance contractor who can easily manage your gutter system.  

How to Conduct a Gutter Inspection Like a Pro

Usually, a DIY gutter inspection can be done from the ground level, especially because most gutter problems tend to be easy to spot. However, you shouldn’t attempt to address the issues yourself even if you have some experience in home improvement because you can’t guarantee a successful repair. Instead, let our team at Advantage Seamless Gutters do the job for you. 

Before Inspection

Are you familiar with the proper steps that go into a safe and thorough gutter inspection? You won’t only need a ladder; the right safety equipment is also necessary, especially if you plan on examining your gutters more closely. If you want to stay safe and secure, we advise that you inspect your gutters from the ground. You can still discern from a distance if they’re sagging or have sustained damage in some sections. 

Protecting Your Gutters

Regular gutter cleaning is necessary to ensure that debris doesn’t accumulate and clog your system. However, this can be tedious if it happens often, which is why you should leave it to the gutter cleaning service professionals. Adding gutter protection helps minimize clogging that leads to water pooling in some sections of your gutters.

Looking for Damage and Clogs

When conducting a visual inspection, professionals always make sure to clear out any clogs and debris. This makes it easier for them to check your gutter system to see if it’s still in good condition. They can also easily spot signs of damage such as gaps, cracks and holes, as well as missing components, sagging and leakage. Expect them to address any of these issues as soon as possible.
