It's that time of year again where the leaves begin to brighten with an autumn hue and fall from their nestled branches.  While this is, quite honestly, one of the most beautiful times of the year, fall brings with it many challenges for homeowners. 

Fall is typically when we see our first rain in many months, and many times the rain comes down hard, as though its been building up all summer.  Western Washington storms make for a thorough test of our home's gutter systems.  Now is our busiest time for Gutter Repairs and Gutter Maintenance.  Whether it's a water leak, dripping gutters, clogged downspouts, or gutters falling away from the fascia, Gu-Wi can help with most gutter repairs.

Don't wait until the end of the season!  If you see a problem with your gutters, get it taken care of as soon as possible.  We've heard too many horror stories of water damage in exterior walls and roofs because the gutters were overflowing.

April Showers Bring May Clogs.

It's an unfortunate reality here in Seattle, WA: the weather is difficult to stay on top of.  After such  beautiful sunshine, we experience heavy rainfall and intense winds that take all of that gorgeous foliage and sprinkle it unsparingly across our lawns, driveways, and yes: all over those rooftops.  This is a fast-tracked recipe for a clogged gutter system.
