Gutter Maintenance in the Winter

Before the weather gets too cold and possibly some snow creeps in, it’s a good idea to clear out those gutters for the last time before it’s too late. For elderly who cannot get up on the ladder and properly clean out the gutters, it’s recommended for a professional like Crew Cut Lawn & Landscaping to get the job done.

Clogged Gutters Can Cause Winter Problems

If your gutters are still clogged with debris and leaves from the fall season, they need to be cleaned out. The reason for this is so that when the temperature drops, water can freeze if there are clogs in the gutters. The water has nowhere to go if the gutters are filled with debris.

If this is not taken care of, then the frozen water can damage the roof and the gutters due to the weight overbearing them.

Consider Gutter Covers

As we get into the colder weather, a good thing to consider in the help fighting off gutter build up is installing gutter covers along your gutters. Gutter covers will help prevent debris to build up in your gutters. This ensures less maintenance cleaning them out before problems occur. They also will keep pests out that enjoy making their nests in gutters. It will improve the water flow through the gutters, so you don’t have to worry about debris causing an issue if there are freezing temperatures.
