The rain gutters on your home are very important to the integrity of your roof, your home’s foundation, basement and even the landscaping close to your house. So, keeping them clean and clear so debris doesn’t build up and water can be directed away from your home properly is an important maintenance task for homeowners. It’s also a dirty task that most of us don’t enjoy performing.
I know it’s still summer, so why am I talking about ice dams on your roof now?
Simple…this is the best time of year to do some maintenance on your home to prevent them from happening in the winter.
Well it’s that time of year again, time to clean those dirty rain gutters.
The job of a rain gutter is to collect all the water that runs off the roof, channel it into the downspouts which direct it away from the house.
Without your rain gutters, you would have all kinds of problems with your home.
Although my job really involves cleaning your rain gutters, because I am around them a lot, I see many mistakes in the way they are installed.
These mistakes can effect the roof of your house and cause you all kinds of costly problems.
