Good gutters help protect your house from water-related damage, saving you hundreds and thousands of dollars worth of house, foundation and roof repair. Yet, despite this crucial role, they are often the ones most neglected when it comes to maintenance. Most gutter cleaning jobs happen in fall, in anticipation of the annual shedding of leaves by nearby trees, but the benefits of clear and clog-free gutters are useful all year-round.
Let our gutter and roofing experts at Northwest Construction show you why keeping your gutters in good shape at all times is important.
The newer gutters of today are often built seamlessly. This is because the fasteners and joints found in older styles are often the weakest points of any gutter system. If your home is a historic home, there’s a chance that you might still be using these older types of gutters. This means you’ll be needing repairs and maintenance more frequently. Ask your local contractor about upgrading your gutters to a seamless build to avoid any problems in the future.
Spring showers and summer rains are not uncommon and they can get pretty strong at times. During these times, your gutters may be in for a challenge. That’s why seasonal and professional cleaning is necessary to make sure you’re ready for any unexpected downpours that might overwhelm an otherwise clogged-up gutter.
While most trees shed their leaves in the fall, evergreens like pine trees do so throughout the year. These pine needles often find their way in your gutters and downspouts, causing clogs and other problems. Contact your local gutter and roofing contractor about installing a gutter protection system that can cover the troughs at all times.
