It isn’t hard to maintain your gutters, though it’s recommended that they should be cleaned during fall or at the start of winter season. Only a well-maintained gutter system is capable of diverting water away from your home and protecting it from unwanted damage such as water leaks, mold and rot. If you don’t maintain your gutters properly, you could face unexpected roofing problems later on and be forced to pay costly repairs. Our roof repair specialists at Pro Quality Construction Inc. explain how you can take care of your gutters:
Have Your Gutters Inspected and Cleaned
While you can do the inspection yourself, it can be a bit tiring and there may be a chance that you won’t spot any potential issue your gutters may have. With a professional inspection, any problem spotted will also be repaired immediately.
You can always clean it yourself using a sturdy ladder, gloves, and a garden trowel or gutter scoop. But If you don’t have the knowledge, experience or time in cleaning out your gutters, you can always hire a professional to do it for you. Pressure washers can be used as well, but it’s often better to invest in a gutter guard to save yourself the trouble of clearing out the debris each time you clean them. To ensure that they’re installed properly, hire a trusted gutter and siding contractor for the job.
Consider Winterizing Your Gutters
One effective way to do this is to have a de-icer installed on your gutters. This uses a chemical compound to melt it and keep your gutters ice-free. Heat tape can also be used, as it produces heat to remove the ice blockage that can occur from water being frozen in the gutter and troughs.
