Why Spring Gutter Maintenance is ImportantMarch 17, 2016
Spring gutter maintenance is one of the most important tasks you should do this season. Getting your gutters checked for winter debris and damage ensures that they function properly once spring showers arrive. A functional gutter redirects rainwater away from your home, protecting your landscaping, interior, and roof from water damage. Gutter clogs, however, interfere with this function. Huff ‘N Puff explains what you need to know about spring gutter maintenance.
Why is spring gutter maintenance important?
Your gutters are long and narrow tubes that capture rainwater and direct it to your downspouts and away from your home. This prevents rainwater from saturating the soil surrounding your foundation, damaging your siding, and seeping through your shingles and damaging your underlayment. Gutter clogs interfere with this function and cause rainwater to overflow, which can damage your home. That’s why it’s important to keep your seamless gutters in Albany, NY, clean and clear of debris this spring.
