SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

GBT Sheet Metal & Gutter in Santa Barbara serviced free emergency gutter repaired all day on Friday.

"We are just giving back to the community. Everyone that works for the company is all from Santa Barbara so we figured why not give back to a place we love," said Garrett Macia, installer from GBT Sheet Metal & Gutter.

It's suggested to clear out gutters at least twice a year, especially before a storm hits.

"Gutters are made to tip forward, but if they aren't properly maintain the water can fill up and go backwards causing dry rot which will end up eating away all your facial. That will end up costing thousands of dollars," said Macia.
