Gutter Maintenance & Snowy Weather Issues

Snowy weather can cause major damage to your property, especially your gutters. After bad weather storms or snow storms you need to consider checking your roof and gutters to see if their is any damage. Having a quick check and an clear out any ice blocks that maybe stuck in the gutter or down-pipes and preventing any more serious problems in future.

Gutter Maintenance – When to have your gutters checked?

Ideally you should have them checked after a bad snow and ice storm and then, you want to have them check every 12 months, preferably before and after winter season. Its much better to have your gutters checked by professionals, as climbing on roofs and ladders can be very dangerous, plus professional gutter cleaners know what to look for, such as issues with leaks and decay or damage to fixtures. It is also recommended that you have your roof and gutters inspected for damage after any major storm.

Other factors that cause Gutter Damage & Drain Damage

Winter brings other elements that that can cause damage to your gutters, such as trees, debris, storms  and wildlife. If you have trees close to your property, they can pose a risk of damage because of falling branches or falling of leaves that can block drains and gutters. To prevent this type of damage the debris needs to be removed from your roof and trees pruned of any overhanging branches regularly. 

Gutters are vital to maintaining your property and keeping your building and roof in the best condition. You need to maintain and repair any damage right away to prevent costly repairs to your property in the future. The gutter system is designed to remove excess water from the roof and channel it away from the property and foundations. A clogged or iced up gutter or downspout can put a strain on your gutters. You’d be surprised at how much it iced water or snow can weigh — more than enough to cause them to sag or detach entirely. Clear out your gutters and down-pipes carefully each season, or schedule yearly professional cleaning. Include your downspouts, as they play a big role in protecting your foundations. Damaged downspouts need to be repaired or replaced as soon as possible to avoid costly repairs.

Loose or missing gutters can cause damage to the roof and siding of your property. If the downspout is pointed where the water falls on a walkway or driveway, or your gutters are leaking water on a walkway or driveway this could be serious during freezing temperatures. You could slip and fall causing yourself a serious injury or maybe a visitor to your home or business. don’t take risks!

Ice Dam Damage

An ice dam is a wall of ice that forms at the edge of the roof, usually at the gutters or soffit.   When an ice dam forms the water then backs up behind the ice dam and creates a pool of water.  This pool of water can leak into your home and cause damage to walls, ceilings, insulation, and other areas.
