Denver gutter cleaning services
Colorado is a beautiful, diverse state that offers something for everyone. Whether you are drawn to natural areas and love to view wildlife from afar or you prefer to be pampered at luxury ski resorts, this state has it all. Denver is the capital city of Colorado, and the state's diversity carries on throughout this sophisticated metropolitan area. This begins with Denver's geographic diversity. The metropolitan area covers more than 8,400 square miles, and this includes the flat and arid High Plains that begin in the eastern region of town as well as the base of the Rocky Mountains to the west.
Denver's diversity extends to its climate. Winters in this city are long and hard, and the average low temperature sits below the freezing mark for five months. Summers, on the other hand, often see temperatures reach into the 90s and beyond. While many plants would not thrive in this type of environment, dozens of tree species have acclimated well. Species that thrive here include hackberry, oak, aspen, poplar, cottonwood, ash, willow, juniper and many types of pine trees. Trees in undeveloped areas are common west of the city, and they are also found in more than 200 city parks throughout the Denver metropolitan area. This includes in City Park, which covers 314 acres and offers exceptional amenities for residents to enjoy in their free time. Across residential and commercial properties alike, tall trees thrive and add charm and shade for locals to enjoy.
You may notice tree leaves throughout the area begin to change colors as early as the middle or end of August. Denver typically experiences snowfall throughout the middle of October through April each year. Fall is relatively brief in Denver, but the brilliant colors of the foliage brighten up the city. These colorful leaves only decorate the trees for a short time before they fall to the ground. While pine needles only drop every three to five years for most species, many trees throughout the area will shed needles throughout the fall months as well.
Leaves and pine needles typically find their way to the ground, but some will land on your roof. They may also be carried to the top of your home by wind, birds or pests. When it rains or when snow or ice melt, running water on the roof will carry the leaves and needles downward and into your gutters. The debris that does not wash clearly through the gutters will remain and will ultimately accumulate into a pile that blocks water from flowing freely. This pile can harden when it dries, and it can stick to the interior of the gutters.
Your home's gutters have a critical function that is often overlooked. By channeling the water on the top of your home in a controlled fashion, gutters prevent foundation erosion, siding and trim rot, roof damage and other expensive issues. Blocked or clogged gutters, however, do not function properly. When you do not clean your gutters as needed, these various types of property damage can occur.
Gutters can be cleaned any time of year, and most residents should plan to complete this task at least annually. Many people assume that cleaning gutters is a relatively easy do-it-yourself project, but they quickly realize that this is a more strenuous and potentially dangerous task than they initially thought. Cleaning your gutters requires you to scrape away all of the caked-on debris that has hardened in the gutters. Every inch of the gutters must be scraped clean, and this means that you must move the ladder every couple of feet. In addition to climbing up and down the ladder multiple times to remove the debris in the gutters along the entire perimeter of your home, you also should follow this task up with a pressure washing session. This must be completed carefully to prevent damaging your home. Cleaning gutters becomes more challenging on a 2-story home or even on a single-story home with a pitched roof because of the elevation.
You could spend many long hours of your free time cleaning your gutters at least once per year, and you could place yourself at risk of injury in the process. This is time that may be better spent in other ways. Denver is an exciting city that offers plenty to do across all seasons. The many city parks, as well as nearby state parks, provide numerous recreational activities year-round. These activities range from swimming, hiking, and cycling to fishing, camping and more.
Sports enthusiasts in Denver have plenty to be excited about throughout the year. Between the Denver Broncos and the Nuggets to the Rockies, Avalanche, and Rapids, you can spend free time at the games or watching them on TV with friends and family. There are also several fun festivals and special events throughout the year, such as the Great American Beer Festival, the Longs Peak Scottish-Irish Highland Festival, the State Fair and others.
Other regular attractions and venues may hold your attention on your free time away from work. Some of the other popular venues throughout the city include the Art District, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, the Molly Brown House, the Denver Art Museum, the Lincoln Center, the Byer-Evans House Museum, the Ellie Caulkins Opera House and several other venues.
