Cutting back overhanging trees is a very important part of any gutter cleaning service. If left unattended the trees around a house can cause damage to roofing as they start to rub against the gutter and fascia boards. These overgrown trees can even start to break tiles and dislodge tiles. Pruning back trees will greatly reduce the need for gutter cleaning in future. It is very common for us to find more than 5-10 trees on a single house, which have overgrown so much, that they are covering parts of the roof.
The 3 photos you will see here show a before, during and after sequence of our staff clearing overhanging branches in preparation for gutter cleaning. Once the tree is pruned back only some dry leaves are left on the roof. The final photo shows the roof once all the leaves have been swept away.
