Fall is an important time of month for home maintenance. Falling leaves and other debris can create hazards to your home, and especially to your gutters.
Gutters that are getting clogged with debris can lead to larger issues in the winter including ice damming and dangerous icicles. Don’t forget to look at the downspouts and where they’re releasing water. Pooling water could result in damage to your home’s foundation. If you don’t think your gutters are effectively clearing water away from your house, it may be time to call in a professional.
Perhaps it’s time to consider installing gutter guards. Your home may require a specific type of gutter guard depending on the type of trees around your home. Ask a professional about what guard would be best for your home.
