One of the biggest misconceptions in gutter maintenance is that you only need to take care of your gutters in the fall. For the best results, you actually need to perform year-round inspections, repairs and maintenance. This reduces the risk of gutter problems and actually makes it easier for you to maintain your gutters. In today’s post, Chattahoochee Gutter Co., Inc., the number one choice for rain gutter covers, shares tips to help you take care of your gutters all year round.

Spring

Spring is all about inspecting your gutters and figuring out what the previous season, winter, did to them. Check your gutter system for any cracks or signs of sagging. You should also inspect your roof structure, attic and fascia for signs of water damage.

Summer

Summer is a good time for gutter work. Call your gutter company and have them inspect your gutters for damage. The favorable weather should allow them to repair your gutters quickly. If you have a gutter cover installed, this is also a good time to have them inspected. They may have come loose or become dented.

Fall

Fall is usually the time when most homeowners clean and inspect their gutters. You or your gutter company should take the time to remove all the leaves and debris inside your gutters by the end of fall. There should be no debris in your gutter system if you want to avoid your gutters freezing or clogging in winter.

Winter

Winter should be the time when you relax, since there’s little chance of leaves getting into your gutters. However, you should still monitor your home for ice damming. Ice dams are caused by ventilation and insulation problems in your attic. Climbing up a ladder during winter is risky, so hire a contractor to deal with the ice dams for you.
