Clean Your Gutters
Gutters are part of your roofing system and they require regular maintenance to keep your home looking nice and to help prevent damage from the elements.By directing rain water away from the perimeter of your home,gutters are the first line of defense against water seeping into your house.So if your gutters are clogged with debris or not in operative shape,they will not function properly resulting in water damage to your home which could cost you thousands.
What needs to be done?
Your gutters need to be cleaned out at least once a year, if you live in an area with lots of moss or trees they need to be cleaned at least twice a year.
Problems caused by full gutters.
Ice dams – An ice dam is when water flows over the edges of a clogged gutter and then freezes,forcing water into your home. Ice dams can become so heavy they can rip the gutter right off your house causing it to fall to the ground.
Blocked Gutters – A common problem with gutters is a build up of leaves and moss which prevents the water flowing to the down pipes. As the water has no where to go 9 times out of 10 it will find a way to flow into your house which will cause internal damage and in some cases structural damage.
