Well-maintained gutters are essential to a structurally sound home. They divert water and snowmelt away from your property to safeguard your roof, foundation and other vulnerable components.

Winter Maintenance Tips for Gutters

While gutters need regular care all year round, it’s more important to keep an eye on them during cold season. This is because when snow on your roof starts to dissolve, leaves, twigs and other debris are likely to collect in the system.

Chattahoochee Gutter Co., Inc. shares some maintenance tips:

Clean Your Gutters

When you see clogs in your gutters, it’s imperative to clear them immediately. Neglecting this problem can add excessive stress on the system, causing it to sag and even pull away from your home. For your safety and convenience, we recommend investing in Gutter Helmet®. This gutter guard features a nose-forward design to block debris. As one of the certified Gutter Helmet dealers, we can install this on your home flawlessly.

Look for Signs of Structural Damage

Check your fascia, foundation and siding for signs of water damage. They may have stains, cracks, rot and mold growth. Once you spot the problem, identify which parts of your gutters have leaks. Call a professional to make the repairs.

Examine the Seams and Anchors

There shouldn’t be gaps between your gutters and fascia to ensure that water goes where it’s supposed to go. See if they’re tightly secured to your home to avoid leaks. Furthermore, look if the seams and anchors are in good shape to keep the system functioning smoothly.

Inspect the Downspouts and Diverters

Water must be diverted 10 feet from the foundation on a downward slope. That said, make sure that it doesn’t pool near your home. If you use a water barrel, it’s better to remove the downspout from it until the warm days come back.
