Gutter Cleaning in Charleston, SC
We treat every gutter project as a top priority. Attention to detail is the heart and soul of our business. We go far beyond providing simple gutter services, giving you incredible insight into your seamless gutters project. Your gutter installation will be handled by licensed and insured professionals. It all starts here, please begin below.
The primary role of your gutter system is to channel water off of your roof and direct it away from your home’s foundation. Gutter blockages can result in water running over the sides of your gutters. That water will eventually settle around your foundation. With time, pooling water will affect the reliability of your home’s structure, causing cracks, mold growth, and even collapse.
Your home’s gutter system is held up by fascia boards, which are typically made of wood. When your clogged gutters overflow with water, your fascia boards will begin to rot. On top of that, your fascia boards must hold the increased weight of your clogged gutters. The combination of rot and weight can cause your gutter system to fail, resulting in expensive repairs.
If you want to maintain the beauty of your landscaping, having clog-free gutters is essential. When your gutters can’t do their job, overflowing water will pour down the sides of your home. Eventually, this water will damage the trees, shrubs, and flower beds close to the base of your home.
When your gutters are full of leaves and other debris, rainwater, and other forms of precipitation have nowhere to go. This causes water to fill your gutters to the brim. Because each gallon of water weighs around eight pounds, this extra weight will cause your gutters to crack, bend, or even tear away from your roof. Your gutters are rendered completely useless at that point, and you’re looking at very expensive repairs.
If you don’t have the time and patience to commit to proper gutter cleaning, The Gutter Gorilla team is here to help. We have been cleaning gutters in Charleston for years. With a fully trained team of gutter professionals on staff, we have the experience and resources to clean your gutters effectively and efficiently.

LeaksThe next time it rains, grab your umbrella and check your gutters for signs of drips or leaks.
Displaced HardwareIf you notice gutter-hanging hardware laying on the ground under the edge of your roof, it’s time to call in The Gutter Gorilla. This is a sign that your gutters aren’t fastened securely. One strong gust of wind or heavy rainstorm could cause serious damage to your gutter system.
MoldCheck your basement and your attic for signs of mold growth. If you see any mold or mildew, your gutters might not be doing their job of directing water away from your home.

Uneven GuttersIf your gutters are uneven or starting to sag in the middle, it’s not a good sign. In situations like these, pooling water will not be able to drain towards your corner downspouts.

Charleston, SC — Following two nights of high-scoring baseball, the Charleston RiverDogs and Augusta GreenJackets engaged in an old-fashioned pitcher’s duel on Friday night at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park. In the end, the RiverDogs used a great night from their bullpen to collect a 3-1 win that secured another night as the team holding the best record in Minor League Baseball. The RiverDogs have won five straight games. The contest was played in front of 5,707 fans, the largest crowd of the season at The Joe.
Augusta (28-25) scored the first run of the game for the third straight night. Jose Bermudez opened the third inning with a bunt back to the mound, but Seth Johnson’s throw bounced wide of first and allowed Bermudez to reach scoring position on a two-base error. A wild pitch moved the runner to third and he was joined on base by Cade Bunnell after a walk. With runners on the corners, Vaughn Grissom rolled into a 6-4-3 double play as the first run crossed the plate.
The RiverDogs (44-18) were held without a hit by GreenJackets starting pitcher Roddery Munoz over his 3.2 innings of work. When the right-hander departed, Charleston went to work against the bullpen. In the fifth, Garrett Hiott opened the inning with a walk, stole second and moved to third on a fly ball to deep center from Johan Lopez. With the infield drawn in, Abiezel Ramirez chopped a ball to second, but two infielders collided and Hiott scored to tie the game.
The tie was broken in the the very next frame when Brett Wisely doubled to left, stole third and scored on Heriberto Hernandez’s sacrifice fly to center to give the RiverDogs a 2-1 lead. The final run scored in the seventh when Osleives Basabe rolled a single through the right side to plate Lopez.
From that point forward, the RiverDogs bullpen made sure Augusta wouldn’t threaten again. Left-hander Trey Cumbie earned the win by dealing 3.0 scoreless innings with five strikeouts. He allowed only one hit. Angle Felipe made quick work of the GreenJackets in the ninth to secure his sixth save in as many opportunities. Johnson, the starter, took a no-decision after allowing just one unearned run in 5.0 innings. He collected six strikeouts.
Wisely was the only player in the game with multiple hits, going 2-4 with a double and a run scored. Augusta was limited to just four hits on the night.
The season-high 5,707 fans that packed The Joe brought a great deal of energy to the stadium all night. From big moments in the game to between-inning promotions and even the post-game fireworks show, they made sure their presence was felt. The fireworks show, set to the tune of famous “boy band” songs capped off the evening with many in attendance singing along.
Having secured a series win, the RiverDogs turn their attention to game five of the set on Saturday night at 6:05 p.m. RHP Taj Bradley (7-3, 2.36) will take the ball for the RiverDogs in a showdown with Augusta RHP Tanner Gordon (3-2, 1.95). The team will celebrate the iconic Japanese form of animation on Anime Night. A limited amount of fans will receive RiverDogs anime posters at the gate.
‘There is definitely a worry’ Lowcountry Physicians detail concern with rising COVID-19 cases

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Nearly 600 new COVID-19 cases were reported by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) on Friday.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Nearly 600 new COVID-19 cases were reported by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) on Friday. State health officials detailed 314 confirmed cases, 245 new probable cases, and 5 new deaths.
The increase in cases numbers comes as all 50 states are being impacted by the delta variant. Lowcountry physicians say their concern for another surge is growing.
This time last year, hospitals in the Greater Charleston Area were overrun with COVID-19 cases and patients, as Charleston was the COVID Hotspot of the world.
On July 16th, 2020, more than 1,800 new cases of COVID-19 were reported in South Carolina and Charleston County was leading the state with 230 of those new cases.
DHEC reporting on Friday a nearly 50 percent increase from the week prior in COVID-19 cases.
Dr. Robert Oliverio with Roper St. Francis said similar to 2020, doctors feared an increase following the holiday weekend. He said, “as soon as Memorial Day came around and people started getting together, we knew cases were going to go up. We just didn’t know how much.”
But unlike 2020, the delta variant is now prevalent in the Lowcountry. The variant makes the virus faster, in more quantity, and is more infective than the original COVID-19 strain. Dr. Oliverio said, when the first coronavirus came out, one person would infect maybe two to three people but with the delta variant—one person can infect up to six people.
He said now, “we’re at that point, where we’ve quadrupled the number of COVID cases in the hospital.” Leaving the medical community to question if the increase of cases will continue to the point of overwhelming the hospital systems and resources once again.
However, hope is up this time around with protocols, procedures, and a weapon we did not have last summer: a vaccine. The problem is, many are still hesitant.
“We know how to cohort patients, we know how to move patients around, but the big question is with the unvaccinated rate—we just don’t know how many of these people will get infected,” said Dr. Oliverio.
Dr. Oliverio explained that although we are far better off than we were last year, we must remain vigilant and encourage our friends and family to get vaccinated. He said, “I don’t think we are going to see what we saw last summer at this time. I mean it was horrible, I don’t think we are going to get there, but I do think we are going to see more and more cases as time goes on.”
King Street Businesses, Charleston City Leaders discuss changes to improve safety, experience of King Street
CHARLESTON, S.C.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – King Street business owners are heading up an initiative with the City of Charleston to bring improvements to one of the city’s most important shopping and dining districts in hopes of improving the street’s experience. If approved by City Council, it would establish a partnership between the city and the Charleston Downtown Alliance, a non-profit of King Street business owners.
The private non-profit organization is leading the charge to bring changes to the busy downtown street. City officials say the group brought the idea to city leaders in hopes of making enhancements.
Some of the discussed changes include adding additional security and safety, increasing maintenance projects and adding beautification along the road. Business owners say it’s a needed step to keep King Street flourishing for years to come.
“King Street is a thriving economic engine and we want to do everything we can to enhance that and that’s what this will help do,” says Roy Neal, Owner of El Jefe Cantina located on King Street.
The Business Improvement District would be stablished through a partnership between the city and Charleston Downtown Alliance to address improvements in several areas on the busy street.
“Mounted officers for the horse patrols, adding hanging baskets or adding holiday lights, things like that would really make the environment so much better,” says Neal.
If approved, a King Street District would be established and the property owners inside the boundaries would pay an additional property assessment to fund the projects.
“This will just give an additional funding source to be able to have those things that people downtown or on King Street feel are important needs,” says Neal.
The funding would come solely from the properties in the district. Meg Thompson, Director of Business and Neighborhood Services for the city says areas of improvement have already been identified.
“That (funding) can be used for maintenance, safety, beautification, programming and all sorts of things,” says Thompson.
City officials and business owners say over the last year, the need for improvements along the street has become more apparent making it the perfect opportunity to adopt the plan.
“King Street because it’s such an important part of our city and has such heavy volume of activity, it needs these enhanced services and this is a great tool to accomplish that,” says Thompson.
For business owners and city leaders, they say it’s needed improvements to keep one of the city’s most vital lifelines alive and thriving.
“This is just another tool in the toolbox to help businesses down here to help the land owners, to help the business owners and to help the community,” says Neal. King Street is back but there are things that it needs.”
On Tuesday, Charleston City Council will discuss the proposed memorandum of understanding with the Charleston Downtown Alliance at a city council meeting. In order for the plan to take affect, city leaders say they would need a majority of support from the business owners within the Business Improvement District on King Street. There are other needed administrative steps, like a public hearing needed to make the project come to life.

RiverDogs Sneak by Augusta 6-5 for Fourth Straight Win
Charleston, SC — The Augusta GreenJackets finished Thursday night’s game at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park with a position player on the mound. Cody Birdsong didn’t come on to pitch due to a one-sided score, but because Augusta ran out of available relief pitchers.

Charleston, SC — The Augusta GreenJackets finished Thursday night’s game at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park with a position player on the mound. Cody Birdsong didn’t come on to pitch due to a one-sided score, but because Augusta ran out of available relief pitchers. In the end, the RiverDogs held on through several anxious moments late in the game to emerge with a 6-5 victory, the team’s 43rd of the season. The game was played in front of a Thirsty Thursday crowd of 4,213.
Birdsong, the starter at third base in Tuesday’s series-opener, was called into the game from the bullpen with two outs and the bases empty in the eighth inning with the RiverDogs holding a 6-5 advantage. His presence on the mound was required after the GreenJackets used seven pitchers on Wednesday night and had already burned through four in the previous innings in this contest. Birdsong retired the only batter he faced and could have become the winning pitcher if Augusta rallied to take the lead in the ninth inning.
The GreenJackets (28-34) tried their best to make that happen in the final frame. Cam Shepherd singled into left field with one out and moved to second when Cade Bunnell worked a walk with two outs. With the tying run in scoring position, Jose Lopez struck out Braulio Vasquez to finish off a 3.0 inning save. The lefty did not allow a run and struck out six while scattering three hits.
The contest featured several early home runs to get the scoring started. Bunnell launched his ninth home run of the season on the first pitch of the game to give Augusta an early leg up. However, Johan Lopez countered with a three-run home run in the bottom of the second to hand the RiverDogs (43-18) a lead they would not relinquish. Victor De Hoyos added a solo blast of his own at the outset of the fifth inning to reduce the Augusta deficit to 3-2.
The teams traded runs over the next two trips to the plate for both sides. The RiverDogs built the lead to three in the bottom of the fifth by scoring one run on a passed ball and another on a successful double steal with runners on the corners. Each team scored a run in the sixth inning, to make it a 6-3 game. In the top of the seventh, Bunnell ripped a two-out, two-run triple to the gap in right center that pulled the GreenJackets within one. Lopez struck out Vasquez with the tying run on third base to end that threat as well.
The RiverDogs were outhit 7-5 by Augusta in the game. Johan Lopez and Bunnell each finished with three runs batted in. Charleston set a new season-high by stealing seven bases. Brett Wisely was responsible for four of them.
Ben Brecht earned the win by allowing two runs over 5.0 innings of work as the starting pitcher. He allowed just two hits, both of them solo home runs. Neraldo Catalina allowed three runs on two hits and a pair of walks in his lone inning on the mound.
The RiverDogs encouraged fans to stay hydrated on this mid-July Budweiser Thirsty Thursday. One unique way in which the team made that effort included a head-to-head battle where participants tried to “shotgun” two cans of water faster than their adversary. The crowd was delighted when a young woman upstaged her male counterpart.
The series rolls along with game four on Friday night at 7:05 p.m. RHP Seth Johnson (3-3, 4.30) will be on the mound for the RiverDogs. Augusta will turn to RHP Roddery Munoz (1-1, 7.13) as they look for their first win of the series.
