Don't Ignore Your Gutters
It's suggested that we clean our gutters twice a year, Spring and Fall. With leaves and acorns falling into our gutters throughout autumn our homes face their biggest clogs of the year before winter.
Clogged gutters could create havoc during a winter storm. If they are not cleaned for water and snow to clear, ice dams could form and damage shingles and the integrity of our roof. Plus, clogs and obstructions trap moisture in the corners or junctions of the roof causing leaks to penetrate into your home.
By springtime, uncleaned gutters that are still filled with leaves twigs and more back up rainwater. Now mosquitoes and other insects will begin collecting by the gutters as winter frost begins to melt.
Gutter and downspout cleaning can help prevent unexpected and expensive projects down the road. Taking preventive measures now can help minimize the likelihood of having to repair an inside water damage or replacing your roof.
