Staying on top of gutter maintenance during winter can prevent the need for costly gutter repairs. However, winter weather conditions can make maintenance a challenge. In this article, ABC Seamless Siding, the top choice for rain gutter guards in our local area, shares some gutter maintenance tips for the winter.

Have Your Gutters Cleaned by a ProThe most important thing you will need to do is to clear your gutters of debris. While some homeowners feel prepared to tackle this chore themselves, we highly recommend hiring a professional instead. Winter weather makes climbing up on a ladder more risky than it already it is. Make sure that you book your gutter maintenance services in advance. The earlier your gutter company can clean and inspect your gutters, the better.
Pay Attention to the WeatherDuring winter, you should keep an eye on the weather because heavy downpours and cold temperatures can expose gutter problems. For instance, clogged gutters allow for pools of water to build up and freeze. The freezing process causes the water to expand, which can damage the gutters.
Install a Heating CableYou can also protect your gutters by installing a heating cable that prevents precipitation from freezing inside or around the gutters. This prevents the formation of ice dams, which helps heed off a host of potential problems.
As an expert in rain gutter guards, we strongly recommend installing our Gutter Helmet® system together with our Helmet Heat® ice reduction system. Helmet Heat is a heavy-duty, commercial-grade, self-regulating heat cable that’s incredibly safe and reliable. This energy-efficient system provides just enough heat to keep your gutters warm and melt the ice. We serve many areas including Anchorage, AK.
