How to Clean and Maintain Your Gutters
Most homeowners don’t have the cleanliness of their gutters in mind. However, the professionals at CMAC Roofing do!
While gutters might seem like an insignificant part of your home, they actually play a very important role in keeping your property safe and sound. Gutters direct rainwater away from your foundation, which can help prevent water damage to your home. In addition, clogged gutters can cause ice dams in the winter, leading to roof damage.
If you need support with your gutters, call CMAC Roofing at 817-729-1605. Our experts can help you keep your gutters clean and functioning properly.
In the meantime, here are a few tips on how to clean and maintain them yourself:
1) Inspect Your Gutters regularly
It’s important to inspect your gutters regularly so that you can catch any potential problems before they become serious. Check for clogs or leaks, and make sure all of the fasteners are in place and secure.
2) Clean Out The Debris
Clogged gutters can lead to all sorts of problems, so it’s important to clean out the debris regularly. Use a garden hose or leaf blower to remove leaves, twigs, and other debris from the gutter system. Be careful not to knock any shingles off of the roof while doing this!
3) Repair Any Damage
If you notice any damage such as cracks or holes in the gutter system, it’s important to repair it right away. A small crack can turn into a big problem if left unaddressed! CMAC Roofing provides gutter repairs as one of our many services.
4) Consider Installing Gutter Guards
If you find that you’re constantly cleaning out your gutters, you may want to consider installing gutter guards. Gutter guards help keep debris out of the gutters, which can help reduce the amount of cleaning you have to do.
