Gutters do not have a very complicated construct. However, these simple water collection systems serve an indispensable function for the longevity of your house or building. As the rain drips off the roof, it falls into the gutters and is channeled away from the house after falling through the downspout. If the gutter systems were not in place, water would run down your home's outer walls during any rain, and drip down into the base. The problems that would be associated with this are leaks in the basement, increased erosion of the outer walls, and wearing away of any painted or decorative stained surfaces. However, simply having gutters isn't enough. In order for them to work to their designed capacity, they have to be relatively free of debris, and there cannot be any blockages. If you live around the Ooltewah area, Elite Property Maintenance is the place to call to make sure your gutters are prepared to do their jobs. Similar to our window washing, this is a job that is done by hand. Our staff does not use any blowers or vacuums. We will get up on the ladders and diligently see to it that your gutters are free of debris. We will clean absolutely everything in the system with the exception of any gutter helmets. Elite Property Maintenance likes to make sure that when we do this job, we don't go about defeating the purpose of protecting your walls or gutters by scratching them. Our team utilizes stabilizer bars, so our ladders will never come in contact with your gutters. When we are done cleaning, we check to make sure that the down spouts are freely running water away from the house before we put our equipment away. And of course, we clear all the debris that lands in your yard from the job and haul it away with us. Would you like to reduce the frequency that your gutters will need to be cleaned? We have just the tool for that. If you want clean gutters to last much longer, purchase our gutter guards. The price of guards can vary, but they are cheaper than gutter helmets, and equally as effective. Elite Property Maintenance proudly sells Leaf Relief gutter guards, and is more than happy to install them for you. We consider Leaf Relief to be the Cadillac of all gutter guards. Their unique performance ability includes the fact that they are to a large degree self-cleaning.
