The Importance of Regular Gutter Maintenance

By May 5, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

It’s that time of the year again when many homeowners make time for cleaning their homes. Now that the winter weather is over, it’s wise to check and fix everything that needs to be fixed that might have been put off.

Prioritize Your Gutters

Huff ‘N Puff, the top installer of gutter guards in Schenectady, NY, suggests inspecting, cleaning, and when necessary, repairing your gutters this season. That’s because gutters are a vital part of your home that provides protection against water damage. They redirect rainwater away from your roof, walls, landscape, as well as the very foundation of your house.

If you disregard your gutters for a long enough time, you can expect moisture to infiltrate the exteriors—as well as the interiors—of your home. A neglected gutter can also become clogged with leaves, small branches, muck, and other debris. It can also become a breeding ground for with small animals and insects.

Consider the Weather

How many times should you tend to your gutters every year? Some experts might say that cleaning and inspecting your gutter twice a year is enough, but it still depends on where you live. If your house is surrounded by trees, you would have to clean your gutters more often, especially during spring and fall.

If you live in an area with a more challenging climate during the latter half of the year, it’s best to call the experts to look at your gutters. Should they find anything wrong, don’t delay repairs. Take advantage of this season’s ideal weather conditions, which will make it easier for a professional to work on your roof.

Take it one step further: have a professional install a gutter protection system for your home. This will make maintaining your gutters a much less stressful experience.
