With Winter fast approaching, now is a great time to make sure that your gutters are ready for whatever the harsh season has to dole out.
We tend to think of rain gutters as important only when it rains, but gutters are super important to have in place when the snow melts too. A lot of snow equals a lot of water, and when it melts, all that water can cause a lot of damage.
Without gutters, a home will have water running down the side of the house; it also means water can get up underneath the siding and start to cause some serious damage. Gutters keep water from pooling near the foundation of your home, which will help save your house from foundational damage. Uncontrolled water is known to cause a variety of problems, including deck rot, basement moisture and mold issues, soil erosion, discoloration of your siding, and even shifting or crumbling in your driveway.
November is a great time to make sure your gutters are clean, properly installed, and that there are no pieces or parts that are missing or that have fallen down. Most gutter systems have an expected lifespan of 20 years, so they can help protect your house for many years to come with the proper care and maintenance.
