Sometimes you’ll forget to clean your home’s gutters, especially with all the other spring maintenance tasks piling up in the spring. This is understandable, but if you don’t clear out the debris accumulated on your gutters, you’ll end up having to spend for a more costly roofing repair. Here’s a few tips to help you maintain your gutters properly.
Why Your Gutters Need Regular Maintenance
Your gutter system drains water from the roof and funnels it away from your home. But the system can only function properly if it’s clean and free of debris. Clogged gutters and downspouts can damage your roof, especially in the event of rain. The water will pool around your roof and can damage the soffits, fascia, and even your siding. Even if you see your gutters from ground level and they may look fine, you still need to have them checked while the weather is still in favorable conditions.
Inspect Your Gutters and Downspouts Have for Damages
If you haven’t had your gutters cleaned since last fall, then you’ll likely have some damage from fallen branches, rust, ice damming, and other wear and tear. If your system is damaged, then it won’t perform as effectively as it should when the next rain storm comes. You can try and fix the visible damage yourself, but it’s better to consider hiring the services of a professional roofing contractor. They can thoroughly inspect your system for any damage that need repairing.
Unclog Your Gutter System
Springtime can sometimes bring strong wind, rain, and debris to bear on your home’s roof and gutter system. You may also have uninvited guests residing in your gutters, such as birds. This is because gutters have the ideal height and cover, but then their nests can seriously unclog your gutters. Hire a professional contractor to clean your gutters so your gutter system won’t be compromised.
