Gutter Upkeep Tips for the Fall Season

By September 1, 2015October 17th, 2023No Comments

When it comes to your gutters, the adage “out of sight, out of mind” can be easy to apply. However, when preserving the structural integrity of your home, it pays to give your gutters some extra attention. Since your gutters serve the purpose of getting snowmelt and rainwater away from your home, neglecting them may lead to otherwise avoidable expenses down the line.

Experts say the best time for gutter upkeep is the end of fall, after the last leaves have been shed. Gutter Helmet of Eastern Shore gives you some tips for keeping your gutters in shape this fall season:

Scoop the Goop Out

Take out that ladder and scoop the goop out of your gutters, paying special attention to the downspout. Free your gutter from leaves and debris that may clog the system and lead to mold and mildew that could cause it to sag. You can use the decomposed leaves as mulch or compost.

Check for Leaks

Check for signs of leaks (such as water stains) and find where they’re coming from. Look for holes as well as cracks in the seams’ caulking. You can use a chisel to scrape the chipped caulking out. Reseal the seams with new bead silicon sealing—this will help keep the water from reaching down behind the gutters and damaging the boards.

Install Gutter Protection

To save yourself the hassle of constantly cleaning out your gutters, consider having gutter covers in Salisbury MD installed.
