GuttersDid you know your gutters can be a major factor in causing or preventing damage to your home? Poorly maintained gutters can damage your roof and cause puddles around your foundation that lead to rotting wood and mold growth. A poorly maintained gutter system can also contribute to water pooling in your basement or crawlspace.

Proper gutter installation and maintenance protects you from costly damage to your home. Here are three things you can do regularly to keep your gutters in good shape and protect your home:

  • Schedule Cleaning – If you begin to see leaves and debris pile up in your gutters, this can cause future damage. Cleaning them out every few months will ensure that your home is protected. And, if you hate dragging out the ladder, we can take care of this chore for you.
  • Install Gutter Guards – Gutter guards can give you peace of mind because they prevent much of the debris and leaves that would normally collect in your gutters. While you may end up brushing off the top every once in a while, gutter guards can give you great results without the hassle.
  • Proper Installation – It’s important to check your gutters to make sure they are properly installed and they don’t have cracks or breaks to ensure maximum efficiency. You can prevent major water runoff by making sure your gutters are designed to draw water away from your home.
