Gutters are very important parts of your roofing system. Clogged or damaged gutters can lead to a variety of problems, including structural and foundational damage. You’ve got to ensure that your gutters are kept in tiptop condition!
To protect your gutters from damage, you must keep them clean at all times. Yet, routine inspections and cleanings are not the only things you can do. There are times, in fact, when you’ll need to do more to keep your gutter from being damaged.
Install heavy-duty gutter. Copper or Galvalume® gutters are very good against hail. If your home is located in a hail-prone area, invest in a heavy duty gutter system.
Reinforce your gutters. Reinforced gutters are well able to bear the weight of heavy objects like ice. As such, reinforcing your gutters allows them to stay strong during winter.
Use gutter guards. Gutter guards will help prevent dirt and debris from accumulating in your gutters, thereby preventing certain problems. Small-sized debris can flow through your gutter and into the downspout easily, but some others won’t. Gutter guards will help you prevent clogging.
Remove trees near gutters. Leaves, branches and other debris can clog your gutter system and cause a lot of damage. By removing trees near your gutters, you reduce the risk of clogging. What’s more, it helps expose your gutters to sunlight, which will help them dry quicker after a rainstorm.
