If you own a home or a commercial building, chances are you care a lot about the investment you’ve made in this property. You likely have quite a few years left to still pay off the loan you took to purchase it and maintaining the structures integrity is probably at the top of your priority list.
The truth is even the most immaculate of buildings or homes will eventually need repair. Keeping up with regular maintenance and paying attention to those details that can save you from larger issues arising is critical.
When it comes to the roof and gutter system on the dwelling you’re going to want to pay special attention not only to how clean you can keep it but also to how well it’s doing its main job of keeping water and debris from clogging the system.
Your home’s gutter system is purpose-built to carry rain waters, melting snow and other items up and away from the home. The last thing you want is that water starting to seep under the roof shingles or into the walls. This can lead to a host of other issues.
Problems including mold, deterioration, foundation problems, and even roof leaks. These can be very costly to fix and put your family, employees, and customers at risk.
The thing you want to look for first is any clogs in the gutter. Not just leaves sitting it in the obvious areas on the roof gutter but also anything clogging the downspouts stopping the running water from flowing freely out of it.
You don’t want this overflowing water to get into the foundation and cause cracks. Now you’re dealing with structural issues that could leave to a total building collapse. Not to mention the havoc is can cause on your flowerbeds, mulch and other fancy landscaping work you paid for.
You can save yourself lots of headaches and expenses simply by ensuring to have your gutters cleaned in the spring and fall and inspected. Be sure to replace any of the gutter that’s damaged, warped or hanging. It will be well worth it as unpredictable New England weather begins.
