And just like that summer has come and gone again and fall is upon us, here are a couple things to consider about your gutters as we embrace this fall season. As the leaves fall they can start to clog up your gutters if you don’t clean them properly or have Leaf Free Gutter Protection in place. If your gutters continue to get this buildup of debris, leaves and twigs over the fall season and into winter this can create problems, not only in the upcoming spring but also over the winter. Once the snow starts to melt, your gutters won’t be able to properly drain the excess water from your roof. When the debris builds up enough in the gutter system, your gutters will start to work against you causing water to flow into areas of your home that were not designed to handle the water. This can cause runoff problems and lead to further issues such as buildup of water around your foundation.
Maintaining your gutters is essential to the longevity of them and the exterior of your home. The Leaf free gutter protection eliminates the need to constantly be maintaining your gutters. Without the Leaf free protection you will be frequently going up on the ladder or calling someone to clean them out.
