A Brief Guide to Gutter Maintenance Before the Summer, Hamilton, Wisconsin

The gutters redirect rainwater away from your home to prevent water damage and erosion. Since the warmer weather often brings frequent storms, maintaining your system before the summer will prepare you for the wet season. To help you care for your unit, here are a few ways to ensure it can do its job effectively.

How to Maintain Your Gutters

gutters1. Inspect Their Condition

Although clogs are usually to blame when gutters work inefficiently, there can also be structural issues that prevent them from directing rainwater away from the home. Check that the system is flush against the roof and shows no signs of weakness, such as sagging or bulging. Loose or missing screws, cracks, or rust can also weaken it, which may cause it  to detach from the area.

2. Clean Them Thoroughly

In the spring, trees shed more debris such as flowers and leaves. Springtime showers can also fill your gutters with twigs and dirt. Without regular cleaning, buildup prevents rain from flowing through, which can lead to significant water damage to your siding and roof. Make sure to clean the system to remove any blockages.

3. Install Gutter Guards

Leaf guards prevent the majority of debris, including leaves, twigs, and dirt, from entering the unit. By filtering large particles, they reduce the amount of time you spend cleaning out blockages. This also helps you avoid issues like rusting and sagging, which can occur if the gutters are packed with damp debris.
