Gutter Clutter

Clogged gutters and neglected downspouts are a common problem seen on our inspections. Gutter maintenance is a small chore that if done regularly and properly has a huge impact on the overall care of your home. Gutters perform a significant duty in protecting the home by diverting water for the exterior while the downspouts push the water from the foundation. Most homeowners clear gutters in early spring and late fall when the snow has melted and after the leaves have fallen. While it seems like the gutter clutter isn’t big deal, it could be causing big problems like siding rot or foundation cracks. Water will always find a way whether it’s down your clean gutters or overflowing out your clogged gutters and down your beautiful home’s wood siding. Another thing, trim those tree limbs away from your home. Prevention is so easy!
