Gutters are probably the one part of a house that most homeowners overlook or take for granted – which can be surprising because gutters perform a vital function in protecting the home. Your gutters keep excess water away from your roof and catch debris that might otherwise clutter your grounds.
Do not make the mistake of thinking that gutters will clean out on their own because they won’t, no matter how strong the rains are. Here are some important gutter maintenance tips you can use to ensure that your gutters continue to do their job for many years.
The best place to start is with a simple cleaning to make sure your gutters and downspouts are operating properly. It is a good idea to have your gutters cleaned near the end of each spring and fall, when debris such as limbs and leaves are at their heaviest amounts.
Avoid damage to your gutters and protect your home.
