Gutter Maintenance Tips from your Livonia Handyman


Gutter Maintenance Livonia: Gutters and downspouts serve an important purpose in directing rain water away from your home. This helps in maintaining a dry basement or crawl space to minimize moisture and mold in your home. Proper gutter maintenance is important to keep them clear of debris so that water does not build up and cause problems

1. Clean leaves and other debris from the gutters, and make sure the holes going to the downspout are clear to allow water to run freely. Be sure they are sloped properly to allow water to flow and se extensions to direct water where you want it to go.
2. Make sure the downspouts drain far enough away from the home to avoid puddles in the grass. Use downspout extensions to help the water drain farther from the home if necessary.
3. If you have lots of trees around your home, consider putting screen over the gutters to keep leaves out to save having to clean them.
4. Check the seams in the gutters and downspouts for leaks. If the seams are leaking, clean the seam with a wire brush to remove old caulk or adhesive, and re-caulk with a silicone caulk. If gutters are in very bad shape and in need of replacing, consider having seamless gutters installed.
5. Make sure gutters are secure with the proper length gutter spikes going right into the rafters. When gutters get weighed down from debris, sometimes the nails loosen and need to be pounded back in.

Homeowners should check their gutters before the heavy storm and rain season. Properly working gutters allow water to drain quickly and away from the house to avoid future problems.

Gutter maintenance is fairly simple for the professional, but the average homeowner, especially senior citizens, may not be comfortable working on their roof or being on ladders. There are some home maintenance projects that are better left to the professional to handle, for safety.

Handyman Services Livonia: Handyman Home Maintenance Tips


Have you ever wanted to know how to protect yourself from a dishonest contractor, or wondered about the newest hot craze in bathroom remodeling? Or maybe you’re more of a “do-it-yourselfer”, constantly in search of the latest home improvement repair tip.

If you answer "yes" to any of the above questions, this new home improvement column is for you. And you'll find it weekly, in the Home and Garden section of AnnArbor.com. The purpose of this effort is to help educate and provide home improvement tips to savvy homeowners. Covered topics will include "6 Tips Every Homeowner Must Know Before Hiring a Contractor", "Tips For Your Home in 2010" and "Save Money and Repair Your Garbage Disposal, Don’t Replace It”.

My name is Keith A. Paul, I have been involved in the home improvement field locally in metro Detroit and Ann Arbor for more than 17 years and love the business. I am a licensed builder by the State of Michigan and began a company, HandyPro Handyman Service, in 1996. We started with one office then and now HandyPro Handyman Service is a national franchise with 10 locations.

As a young child, I remember helping my father complete home repair projects, such as fixing a leaky sink and helping install the shingles on our home. He spent many hours showing me how to keep a home as beautiful as possible. I remember him saying “As long as you take care of your home, it will take care of you.”

This is the principle I want to share with the community. This "taking care of your house" principle is what we brought to our business and radio show, and we're honored that we can share it in this column.

Unfortunately, contractors can have a bad reputation and sometimes it is justified. However, I love this industry because there are so many great people who make an honest living helping and providing great service to homeowners like you. Helping our readers find the “good guy contractor” is one of our main goals. We also want to help you become more aware of the latest trends and reveal handyman secrets that can save you money.

This article is for you, the reader, if there are any topics or "home improvement missions" that would be of interest to you, do not hesitate to contact me at kpaul@handypro.com.
