Wood Gutter Maintenance

Posted on: October 7th, 2013 by editor

The gutter system on your home is its first defense against weather elements.

As we know all too well, if a roof does not do its job, the home is not well protected. Your roof will capture rainwater that it must then channel away from the structure through spouts. If the gutters are clogged or damaged, the water cannot reach the spouts and will pool up on the roof causing expensive roof damage.

Your home may be a classic house in need of repair, or a new home designed in a more traditional style. Wood gutters can be beautiful, as well as functional in the protection of your home’s roof. Wood gutters can be shaped as V-shaped eaves troughs or in half-round styles which can be shaped and painted to match the trim. Wood gutters, however, may require some additional maintenance, and require specific skills to repair.

Often wood gutters are joined with flashings – seams, end caps, outlets, and miters. If left untreated, these failed flashings will ruin an otherwise good wood gutter. It is important that these wood gutters be cleaned and oiled regularly, and by someone who knows what to look for, and how exactly to repair. Wood gutter maintenance is critical for the integrity of the roofing system.
