Summer doesn’t seem like the time to be thinking about cleaning or repairing your gutters, but here are a few things to consider.

Spring Is The Rainy Season

By the end of spring, your gutters are sure to be clogged with dirt, debris, leaves or limbs that have fallen on your roof. Summer gutter cleaning is an essential preventative maintenance for your home.

Guard Against Summer Storms

Summer storms and extreme weather can cause major problems with your gutters.  Frequent showers and heavy winds bring debris and possible gutter damage.  Cleaning your gutters can be an excellent way to maintain a healthy gutter system.

Preparing for fall

Cleaning and maintaining your gutters in summer is the best way to prepare your home for fall. When the leaves start falling, you’ll be able to rest easy knowing that your home is well-prepared for the added weight that will be deposited into your gutters.

Replacing Gutters and Fascia

When water lands on your roof, it has to go somewhere, which is why the gutters are so important.  They collect and divert the rain to make sure the water won’t damage your roof or the foundation. When they are functioning correctly, Water that falls on the roof, flows through the gutters off the roof and into the ground. However, debris in gutters can clog that flow and cause gutters to stop working and since the inside of your gutters are not easily seen, those obstructions can often go unnoticed.

At the simplest level, keeping a maintenance calendar for your home will ensure that you take care of low interval care like gutter cleaning and inspection at least once a year. With all of the smartphone apps and utilities available, setting up a calendar is not a huge chore. Regardless of how you remind yourself, you will need to get a ladder out and carefully inspect your gutters and downspouts. First and foremost, be safe! Clean debris and look for signs of leaks. Make sure gutters aren’t sagging and trapping water and tighten any gutter hangers or downspout brackets that are loose. Finally, replace any worn or damaged components.

It is important to keep your gutters clean, but sometimes they need to be replaced.  The same is true for the fascia, the boards that back them and offer protection to the end of your rafters.  Make sure your gutters and fascia are properly taken care of and properly replaced.  Call The Gutter Pros at 443-880-4813.

Spring Cleaning – Don’t Forget About Your Gutters

Spring is here and that means homeowners everywhere are busy with yard work and home maintenance projects. One of the most important tasks is cleaning your gutters and checking for damage.

A working gutter system protects your home from water damage by draining water from the roof and channeling it away from the house. When the gutters and downspouts are clogged, water can back up.  If that happens, water can damage the roof, fascia, soffits, and siding.

Experts will tell you that regular maintenance will help reduce the need for gutter repairs and replacement. Don’t rely on what you can see from the ground.  It is very hard to tell if debris has built up in your gutters or if your gutter system is damaged and not functioning properly.
