Spring rolls around once again.seamless gutter company fairfield ct

It’s time to clean up from this seasons never ending winter and make things fresh for the new season. Our outdoor to-do lists contain jobs like getting the garden ready, cleaning up the grill, and washing up the exterior of our homes. There’s one item that needs to be done but rarely gets on the outdoor task list for spring– inspecting your home’s gutters.

Your gutters play an essential role in protecting your home from the damaging effects of our four seasons. If your gutters are not running smoothly, your home health and safety will suffer.

Giving your gutters a good inspection each spring will help give you the peace of mind you need to know, your gutters are working properly and not backing up or sending water to disrupt your home’s foundation. 

You need your gutters to do their job effectively and efficiently when you are sure they are in good working order you can worry a little less about your home. Here are a few good reasons why adding a gutter inspection  to your springtime to-do-list is essential:

  • Gutters Defend Against Foundation Problems

Gutters are designed to channel water away from the house. Moisture near the foundation walls can cause them to crumble, and crack.

  • Inviting a Swarm of Unwanted Guests

Leaves, left to rot and decay in your gutters, become a breeding ground for insects. They can also attract other critters that are known for burrowing into your attics and causing damage to the roof. Cleaning out your gutters and downspouts and replacing them quickly when they become damaged will keep those critters from moving into your home, and will stop insects from crashing your outdoor get-togethers.

  • Gutter Pitching Problems

When debris clogs a gutter, and water mixes in it with it, you have a lot of weight bearing down on them. The extra weight causes a pitch to form that can damage the gutter holders, your roofline, and even the gutters themselves. Repairs can be costly.inspect them and look for issues with a gutter pitch to avoid the headaches a gutter pitch problem can cause.

Spring cleaning is essential for your gutters, and so is evaluating their condition after the winter passes. Any gutter issues, like loose holders, should be fixed right away before they become significant problems down the line. Winters are harsh for gutter systems, so it’s crucial they’re checked thoroughly every springContact us, and we’ll be glad to evaluate them for you.
