Don’t take your gutter system for granted. They keep your home safe from destruction by diverting rainwater away so you must make sure they work as intended. If neglected, they can cost you money and lead to frustration.
Year-round efficiency for your gutter system starts with seasonal maintenance.
The primary objective of spring maintenance is to find out if the previous winter did a number on your gutters. Check for any sags or cracks, and perform repairs accordingly. You can inspect your roof and your attic as well: the rising water levels may have found their way into vulnerable areas due to clogged gutters.
The summer season offers favorable conditions suitable for gutter inspections and maintenance. Consider investing in a better gutter protection system if you find your current one has become loose or dented due to the elements. Of course, observe safety whenever you are up the ladder.
Remove all leaves from inside the gutters or on the shields after all of them have fallen from trees. Avoid freezing and clogging your gutters by getting rid of debris.
Don’t try to get up on a ladder during this time – it’s hazardous with all the cold, snow and ice. Check for ice damming as well as icicles on the gutters. This means that heat inside your home might be escaping. Consider investing in a heat reduction system that you can apply to your gutters to prevent ice from forming.
