There are so many home maintenance tasks that need to be done in spring, that it is easy to forget about the gutters. Doing so is a mistake, however. Your gutters have the important job of protecting your home from water damage. In today’s article, Colorado Roof Toppers, the top roofing contractor in the area, shares some spring gutter maintenance tips.
Schedule a Professional Gutter Inspection
A professional can thoroughly inspect your gutters and assess their condition. Depending on their assessment, they can recommend either gutter repairs or a full replacement. Problems like holes, sagging gutters and misalignment can easily be fixed by professionals. However, if your gutters are old and severely damaged, then it makes more sense from a cost perspective to replace them with new and better designed gutters.
Get Your Gutters Cleaned
As a roofing and gutters expert, we highly recommend getting your gutters cleaned regularly. Spring brings rain, wind and debris to your gutter system so it’s likely that your need to have your gutters cleaned out. Sometimes, animals might also make nests inside your gutters. We recommend calling a professional to safely remove pests in your gutters in this case. We also recommend hiring a professional gutter company to clean your gutters for you.
Prepare Your Gutters for Summer
Summer can often bring thunderstorms, high winds and hail, so you need to make sure that your gutters are ready. Get your gutters professionally inspected, repaired and cleaned well before summer. Clogged gutters during a storm will sag and cause water damage to the rest of your home.
