How to ensure wood gutters last

We treat our wood gutters to ensure long lasting durability for your home.

The number one complaint we hear about wooden gutters is this: they rot. However, the truth is that when properly maintained, wood gutters never rot. All they require to last is the absence of standing water.

The absence of standing water. Keep that in mind. Just about every good habit you'll want to acquire to keep your wooden gutters from falling into disrepair stems from that observation. And, really, keeping them in good working order can be as easy as a, b, c:

  1. Twice a year, clean out the leaves and muck, washing out any roof granules or dirt that may have collected sludge-like at the bottom of the gutter.
  2. After cleaning, brush boiled linseed over the entire interior face of the gutter. While not recommended, other substances can serve the same purpose.
  3. Inspect the joints and end caps on your gutters and, as needed, re-tar them.

Following those ABCs will not only help ensure that your wooden gutters last, but that your home will be better protected from the more costly repairs that can result from interior water damage.

Rely on the experts for wood gutter repair

Unfortunately, if routine maintenance hasn't been performed on wooden gutters, you may find yourself in need of real repairs. This is the time to either break out your exceptional DIY skills or to call in an expert -- and we mean an expert. Most local handymen won't be equipped for the repair of wooden gutters, which calls on carpentry skills not dissimilar to those used in boat building.
