With winter coming to an end, it’s now time to get the exterior of your home looking spring-ready
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE EAVESTROUGH IS NOT CLEARED
Cleaning your eavestrough is a vital part of preserving and caring for your home’s exterior. Eavestrough fills with leaves, roof debris, ice and dirt as the seasons change. Your eavestrough can become clogged if it is not taken care of properly. Clogged gutters can cause many problems, such as water entering your basement.
WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR EAVESTROUGH IN THE WINTER
During the winter, leaves cause water to accumulate in the gutters, and when the temperature drops below freezing, ice forms. Ice damming can occur as a result of that ice. When snow and ice melt off the roof, there’s nowhere for the water to go but over the gutter. Gutters clogged with leaves and debris become quite heavy, especially when wet, causing sagging to the eavestrough and resulting in damage costs.
HIRE A PROFESSIONAL TO DO YOUR DIRTY WORK
The good news is that this can be avoided with proper eavestrough care and maintenance.
