Gutter Cleanup and Repairs for Your Hewitt Rental Property

Hewitt Rental Property with Clean Gutters and DownspoutsTo maintain a profitable rental property, regular cleaning and repair of the home’s gutters are very important. Gutters collect water from large roof surfaces and direct it away from the home, preventing flooding of the foundation, window wells, and other vulnerable areas.

Neglected gutters can result in costly repairs in the future. As dry leaves and other debris gather in a gutter, they stop the downspouts from draining properly. Clogged gutters are going to overflow, freeze, and pull the gutters loose over time. Water gathering in the gutters can rot wood and rust metal too. When gutters fail, water can flood a basement, damage a foundation, and more.

A number of Hewitt rental property owners might think that their residents can also be expected to clean out the gutters every now and then because they are responsible for some of the basic maintenance tasks around their rental home. However, gutter cleaning and repair are not jobs that should be handled by residents. Gutter maintenance and repair needs the use of ladders, so proper safety measures need to be taken to avoid falls and serious injury. For your single-family rental property, preventing liability concerns and other safety risks is essential. Keeping your residents off of ladders and on the ground is the best means to do this.

Though maintaining and repairing gutters may not be a particularly tough job, Hewitt rental property owners should really think before doing it themselves. Even if proper safety precautions have been taken, ladders are inherently risky no matter how safely they are used. Nevertheless, the most difficult thing might be remembering to actually do regular maintenance on your rental home’s gutters. Gutters tend to be one of those maintenance issues that stay out of sight – and out of mind – until they’ve become a big problem.

    Thanks for helping me understand that flooding can happen when gutters are damaged since it can flood can go into the basement and damage the foundation. With that in mind, I will be looking for professionals to restore our gutters. They have been damaged badly when the branches of our trees have reached the roofing of our house.
