Spring is usually a great time to get started with various home maintenance tasks including gutter upkeep. In this post, gutter replacement expert Roofmasters Roofing and Sheet Metal Company, Inc. shares some tips on how to ensure your gutter system is free of winter debris and damage and ready for the new season.
Clean Your Gutters Regularly
Regardless of the season, debris may find its way into your gutter system. When left unattended, dirt and debris could potentially build up over time and create blockages. This could be a big problem, especially when it rains. Water won’t be able to drain properly, and this can put a lot of unnecessary strain on your gutter system.
That said, ensure that you clean your gutters regularly. Also, consider adding gutter protection so that you can keep leaves and debris out of your gutter system.
Repair Gutter Damage
As springtime begins, it’s important to check your gutter system for any winter damage. The winter weather can be tough on any part of your home, so you should be proactive in this regard. Some common culprits behind gutter damage that may have occurred during winter are fallen tree limbs, ice damming, rust, and general wear. If any signs of these problems are apparent, make sure to address the issue quickly. Call a professional to do a proper assessment, and repair or replace it when necessary.
Ensure Your Gutters Are Ready for the Summer Storms
It’s not too early to prepare for summer storms as well. Thunderstorms during the hottest season often come with hail and high winds, so your gutter system should be ready for these weather conditions. Don’t forget to check the downspouts and underground drains too.
