Living in the South we are all familiar with rain that falls so hard our gutters overflow. During a rainstorm, gutters route runoff from a large surface – your roof. These gutters are what protect your houses siding, windows, doors and foundations from water damage and keep your basements dry.
Keep Rain Gutters Clean
Keeping those gutters clear of leaves and debris keeps the gutter in working order. If they are not clear, drain outlets will dam up and rainwater will fill the gutters, overflow, and eventually damage the gutters. Water that pools will rot wood gutters and rust sheet-metal ones.
Inspect and clear gutters in both spring and autumn. You also may have to loosen dirt that has settled into the gutters and scrub them with a stiff brush. Flushing gutters with a stream of water from a hose will clear material that has become lodged in the eaves troughs and downspouts.
Fall has almost come and gone and Winter is on the horizon – have you checked your gutters recently.
