4 Tips to Gutter Maintenance
One of the responsibilities of owning a home is gutter maintenance, so you avoid any major repairs to your roof, house, basement or foundation. Here are 4 tips to keeping your gutters clean and maintained all year.
- Twice a year check-up. Check your gutters twice a year, in the spring and fall, to make sure they are clear of twigs, dirt and other build-up. Doing this helps keep your gutters strong, as too much weight can cause the fasteners to pull away from the house.
- Avoid water damage. Gutters that are clean and clear from debris allows water to flow easily and steadily. If too much debris is present that water will not be properly pulled away from the home. Clogged gutters can lead to water in the house and basement, foundation cracks, and allow water in siding and the roof.
- Clean Gutters. If you find twigs, dirt or other build-up in your gutters safely remove them. Use a safe and sturdy ladder to climb up and with gloved hands remove any debris visible. Sometimes running a hose down will clean out any extra dirt that was missed by using your hands.
- Install gutter guards. Installing gutter guards prevents your gutters from allowing twigs, dirt and debris from clogging your gutters and downspouts.
