There is always a lot of cleaning and home maintenance to be done in spring. It’s important for your gutters to be on the top of that list. Here are four tips for taking care of your gutters this season.
Remove all the debris that accumulated in your gutter – Clogged gutters and downspouts can lead to many problems in your roofing system as well as other parts of your home. Practice safety measures when cleaning the gutter. Use a ladder and ensure that you are in a stable place and have someone look out for you and help. You can scoop out debris with a trowel or don a pair of gloves and use your hands. Putting a tarp underneath your gutter will help control the waste in your yard. If for any reason, it will be difficult for you to do the job yourself, hire a professional to do the cleaning for you.
Check for damage – Look out for rust, loose screws, cracks and sagging gutters. Also check for water stains underneath the gutter. That is a sign that your gutters have leaks that need to be addressed. You can run water on your gutters using a garden hose to see where water is leaking.
Repair immediately – Call your roof replacement specialists to do repairs for any issue that you may have discovered. Doing it sooner than later will save a lot of trouble and future expenses.
Consider installing gutter guards -Gutter guards will keep leaves and other debris at bay.
