Being up on a ladder dealing with your gutters may not be the first thing on your mind this July but cleaning out your gutters should be on your to-do list this summer. Keeping your gutters clean and functional is a necessity all homeowners must deal with one way or another, and summer is the best time to take care of them.
Repair After Spring Rains
If you forgot to clear out your gutters over the winter the spring rains may have hit you hard. Clogged gutters can overflow and put your home at risk of flooding and water damage. Spring, in particular, is hard on gutters due to the fluctuating weather patterns and the dirt, debris, and leaves that accumulate and gather in your home’s gutters.
Save Yourself From Summer Storms
Not only will debris continue to accumulate over the summer months but gutters are put at additional risk due to summer storms. High winds and heavy rains can knock them loose and cause significant damage. Make sure to take the time to inspect your homes gutter system after each storm to ensure everything remains in working condition.
Get Ready For Fall
Perhaps the most important aspect of summer gutter maintenance is to prepare for autumn’s arrival. As leaves begin to fall and rain and debris add up your gutters will wind up bearing a significant amount of weight. If you’ve kept up on your maintenance all summer, you will not have to worry about them collapsing and causing damage. Not only will this keep you from having to repair a gutter in the rainy cold, but you’ll have peace of mind knowing your foundation, roof, and landscape are all safe from damage and flooding due to gutter malfunctions.
