If you’re a homeowner, gutters probably aren’t something you think about much. Even if you are a property manager or commercial property owner, the gutters are just something that don’t get a lot of attention. For that reason, many property owners are surprised to learn that their gutters are in sad need of repair.
But there is a reason your gutters don’t get a lot of TLC. They only come into play when it rains, and they don’t require much in the way of maintenance. The bottom line is that they only serve one purpose—to whisk water away from the roof and building to a safe distance from its foundations. But that is a very important job, and you want to make sure that your gutters are up to the task.
On the other hand, there is no need to waste time, energy, effort, and money obsessively keeping gutters clear of debris. Unless there is a major high wind storm, you probably only need to clean your gutters twice per year, in the fall and spring. If your home is shaded by trees that frequently release twigs, leaves, and other debris into your gutters, you might need to have them cleaned every three months. However, some commercial gutter systems only need to be cleaned once per year.
