Gutters play an important role in protecting a home from water damage by draining water away from the roof and funnelling it from the house. A clogged gutter can back up and damage the roof, fascia, soffits, and siding of the house. Cleaning the gutter system is especially important in spring because it is that time of the year when the gutter is more likely to end up clogged. Regular examination and maintenance can help reduce the need for gutter repair and replacement. Here are some tips from experienced professionals at Gary’s Gutter Service Inc.:
- Keep your gutters and downspouts clean and properly maintained. Debris, such as leaves and twigs should be removed from the roof so your gutter and downspout stay free from the build-up of twigs and debris.
- Make sure that the downspout is installed several feet from your home to keep water away from the foundation of the house. This will prevent wet basements.
- Trim tree branches so that the roof and gutters are clear, to prevent leaves from accumulating there.
- Regularly have your gutters inspected by a professional.
