Gutters and downspouts are solely responsible for removing potentially problematic excess rainwater from your roof and away from the home itself. Without a functioning gutter, costly leaks or basement flooding could result. To keep gutters and downspouts working properly, they must be checked for clogs and cleaned out on a regular basis.
During the summer and fall, leaves and sticks build up in your gutters. When it rains or snow melts, this debris is washed into your downspouts and can cause major clogging, as well as ice dams on your roof and massive icicle formations. It’s important to ensure your downspout is clear and functioning so it can prevent your home from flooding by directing water away from your basement and main floor.
Our goal is to direct water at least 10 feet away from your home so it doesn’t end up in your basement. It is important to check grading to ensure water does not flow back towards the home. Contact MadCity Environmental at 608.480.0367 today to schedule your Gutter + Downspout cleaning appointment.
