The leaves have begun to fall here in New England, and although fall foliage can be beautiful it can wreak havoc on your gutter and in turn your entire roofing system. Leaves and other debris can get stuck in your home’s gutters and can stop water from properly draining which can cause leaks in your roof.
Cleaning your gutters is extremely important to protecting the structural integrity of your home, which is why you should ideally do it three to four times a year especially during the fall when leaves are more likely to get stuck in your gutters. If you have a large number of trees surrounding your home you may want to clean them once in early fall and once again in late fall to ensure your gutters are ready for melting snow and ice during the winter.
Prevent expensive damage to your roofing system this winter and ensure your gutters are cleaned out this fall. Remove leaves, acorns, sticks and other debris from gutters, so melting snow and ice can flow freely.
