Importance of Working Gutters This Fall

Fall season is the last opportunity homeowners have to double check and make sure every aspect of their home’s exterior is in working condition and ready for the winter months. One part of a home that is often overlooked is the gutters. Gutters function to collect rainwater and safely remove it from your property through a downspout. With the leaves starting to fall, increased rainfall, and wind storms a regular occurrence in the North Shore area this time of year, we encourage homeowners to get their gutters inspected, cleaned, or replaced.

Issues Stemming From Dis-functional Gutters

Gutters can easily become clogged with debris during the fall. Leaves, twigs and other buildup can occur throughout the course of the season and block the steady flow of water away from your home. Buildup can add pressure on the gutters and eventually cause them to detach from your roof which warrants a more expensive repair or replacement.

Our roofing company often sees gutters that haven’t been installed properly. If you’ve noticed that water is spilling out of your gutters during a rainstorm or the gutters are hanging lower than normal, contact us because they were most likely not installed properly. Our professional roofers can get your gutters back in working condition and looking like new so that they’re ready to tackle the most challenging part of the year: icicles during the winter.
