Fall is the time of year for settling in to your warm clothes, pumpkin spice everything, and all things Halloween. It is also the time of year to consider some maintenance on your home: The Fall Cleanup! The most important thing that I could stress to homeowners is to keep their gutters clean. This task may require a couple of trips up the ladder to clean them out during the course of the Fall season. Hiring someone else to clean them out is always an option, or you can do it yourself. Either way this step in the Fall Cleanup process is crucial for your home’s well-being.
We often find that homeowners call us with problems around their gutters or soffits during the Fall season. This situation is typically caused by the buildup of leaves in the gutters that prevents the proper flow of rainwater off your roof and to its desired location. If leaves are not cleared from gutters before winter sets in, there is also a higher likelihood of ice damming at the eaves of the roof. If not addressed, such a situation could potentially create a leak inside your home or unforeseen rot to your fascia or soffit. While cleaning gutters is important, it is also noteworthy to know that even if you have gutter screens or covers, there still may be areas in which leaves build up with the potential to cause problems. A good visual inspection is advised to ensure that no issues arise. Happy Fall and Happy Fall Cleanup! Tyler Jackson, Owner Guardian Roofing & Construction https://guardianroofingks.com/
