Allen Gutter Cleaning

A Necessary Chore

Most homes require gutter cleaning services at least twice a year. If you have live oak trees, burr oak trees, sweetgums, or maples, you might need the job done four times a year!

But, with gutter guards, you may get away with just one gutter cleaning a year.

Need another reason to clean your gutters? Did you know that dirty or clogged gutters are often a source of standing water that breeds mosquitoes?

Are Gutter Guards Helpful in Allen, TX?

Absolutely. Many of the trees in Allen shed a great deal of debris. Just think about the oak, maple, and pine trees that may be in your yard right now. Some unhappy residents have to clean their gutters monthly just to keep up. With gutter guards, you can clean your gutters just once a year instead. If you want to keep mosquitos and other pests out of your gutters and away from your attic, gutter guards just can't be beaten.

Can't Gutter Guards Be Bought Online or at a Store?

Yes, gutter guards are available to buy as a do-it-yourself project from home improvement stores. However, considerations such as the pitch of your roof, width and depth of your gutters, and the number of trees around your property need to be taken into account when designing your gutter guard protection.

We’ll happily answer your questions about the various gutter guard brands, and bring product samples for you to review.

Our trained technician looks at all the factors that make your home unique and designs your system accordingly.

Clear Gutters Channel Water Responsibly

The city of Allen advises: "The storm sewer system carries rainwater from streets, sidewalks and buildings to local streams. This prevents flooding during heavy rains. This water is NOT treated at the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWDWastewater Treatment Plant."

What Does This Mean for Homeowners?

Residents are expected to participate in our community's water conservation efforts. For instance, watering on the scheduled day for your part of town.

If you receive a water conservation courtesy flag from the city, you need to correct promptly whatever water management problems were observed on your property.

Other Ways to Help the Environment

But, other water conservation actions are completely voluntary, and are actually delightful endeavors for you and your family.

Let's take a minute to look at ways Gutter Tex can assist you with rainwater collection projects.

Rainwater Collection Systems

Good gutters help protect your community from stormwater run-off problems like flooding. Besides flooding, stormwater run-off can pollute our waterways as it picks up oil, sediment, fertilizer, yard waste, and other pollutants.

Incorporate clean, working gutters with charming rainwater collection solutions to help alleviate these run-off problems.

Rain Barrels

A popular way to conserve water is to collect rainwater from your gutters into a rain barrel. The city of Allen even offers rebates to homeowners who buy rain barrels!

The water you collect in your barrel can be used for:

  • watering potted plants
  • filling birdbaths
  • rinsing hands
  • washing your car
  • outdoor water features like ponds and fountains

Gutter Tex crew modifies the downspout or rain chain to direct the flow of water from the gutter to the rain barrel.

NOTE: It's important that rain barrels be covered to prevent mosquitoes from using standing water as a breeding ground.

Rain Chains

Water from the gutter follows the rain chain to a barrel or a bigger receptacle called a water butt.

The rain also could gently cascade into a rain garden or a flower bed that absorbs the water.

A rain chain reduces clogging. It's attached within the outlet that a downspout would otherwise occupy. Leaves, needles, and other debris just fall through the hole and to the ground.

They are beautiful décor on the outside of your home and look even more appealing with water rushing through them.

Rain chains sound lovely when it rains, delivering a musical resonance a bit like wind chimes.

Your Gutter Tex technician is happy to install rain chains with your gutter system.

Rain Gardens

Not a pond or a wetland, the rain garden may be dry most of the year, however, when we get a storm, the water from the gutters is diverted to an area of the yard that has been prepared to receive it. Your rain garden works like a sponge and natural filter, cleaning pollutants as the water percolates slowly into the surrounding soil.

Tips for Building a Rain Garden

  • Don't put a solid border around the rain garden. You want water to easily flow into and out of the area.
  • Locate the garden at least 8-10 feet away from house foundations.
  • Use swales (low, dry creek beds) to direct water from the rest of the yard into the rain garden.
  • Flowering plants, like Flame Acanthus and Ruellia, thrive in these areas.

Let us know and your Gutter Tex tech will add a downspout extension from the gutter to the rain garden.

Why Go Seamless?

Here are 5 reasons why seamless gutters are the superior choice for your Allen, TX, home.

  1. Seamless gutters last longer (20 to 100+ years, depending on your chosen materials). Many homeowners will purchase seamless gutters once and then may stop thinking about gutter installation for the rest of their lives.
  2. Seamless gutters eliminate the "snag points" that tend to cause clogs, rust, and leaks on traditional sectional gutters.
  3. Seamless gutters are custom cut to fit your home perfectly and thus look better and perform better.
  4. Seamless gutters are secured with rivets rather than screws, which means they can withstand hail and falling branches better than sectional gutters can.
  5. You don't have to paint seamless gutters. They already come in 57 lovely colors!

Contact our technicians to determine which seamless gutters are right for your house!

Distinctive Copper Gutters

Famous for the signature blue-green patina, copper gutters are incredibly beautiful with a classic elegance that enhances traditional, colonial, mission revival, craftsman, and modern homes.

Copper gutters come in a range of shapes and sizes including box-style, K-style and half-round to accommodate the diverse architectural styles of Allen.

Durable and long-lived, copper is resistant to rust, corrosion and UV ray damage.

Yes, copper is more expensive, but its aesthetic appeal and durability make it a superior choice for discerning homeowners looking for the best gutter system available.
