Gutter Cleanup and Repairs for Your Palm Harbor Rental Property

Palm Harbor Rental Property with Clean Gutters and Downspouts

Consistently cleaning and repairing a house’s gutters is an essential part of maintaining a profitable rental property. Gutters collect water from large roof surfaces and channel it away from the home, preventing flooding of the window wells, foundation, and other vulnerable spots.

Neglected gutters can result in costly repairs. Dry leaves and other debris gathering in a gutter can lead to downspouts not draining properly. Blocked gutters will overflow, freeze, and slowly pull the gutters loose. Water gathering in the gutters can rot wood and rust metal as well. When gutters fail, water can also damage a foundation or flood a basement.

Several Palm Harbor rental property owners believe that their tenants will occasionally clean out the gutters as they already handle some of the basic maintenance responsibilities around their rental home. However, gutter cleaning and repair shouldn’t be handled by tenants. Gutter maintenance and repair require using ladders, so appropriate safety measures should be in place to avoid falls and serious injury. Preventing liability concerns and other safety risks is vital for your single-family rental property. The best way to do this is to keep your tenants off ladders and on the ground.

While maintaining and repairing gutters are not difficult tasks, Palm Harbor rental property owners should think twice before choosing to do it themselves. Even if proper safety precautions are taken, ladders are dangerous no matter how safely they are being used. The hardest part of all may be remembering to do regular maintenance on your rental property’s gutters in the first place. Gutters tend to be one of those maintenance tasks that stay out of sight and out of mind until they suddenly become a huge problem.
