Keeping Your Gutters Clean During Winter
3 Gutter Maintenance Tips for the Winter
Winter is a rough season. Colorado winters can be a little wild, so it’s a good habit to winterize your home. You know, taking care of things like your roof, siding and gutters is a great way to keep your home in good condition throughout the winter.
Gutter maintenance is very important for the safety of your entire home. Ideally, you should periodically care for your gutters, so that when winter strikes, you’re all set, but if you haven’t done so yet, here are some tips to help you winterize your gutters.
Trim Overhanging Branches
Little twigs from the branches that hang above your home can break off and get stuck in your gutters, along with other debris like seeds. Plus, if you didn’t clean your gutters before winter, you can be sure there is already debris from fall in there, like leaves. Getting rid of those branches can help keep your gutters from getting clogged and potentially cause damages to your home.
Clean Your Gutters
There’s no working around it. If you want to keep your gutters and your home in tip-top condition, you must clean out your gutters. All that debris that might already be stuck in there is a risk every time snow falls. Once the snow melts, if your gutters are clogged, they won’t allow water to drain properly, causing them to overflow or even detach from your house.
