When the snow begins to fall, you’re likely to have concerns about how the exterior of your home will hold up. And that’s especially true of your gutters.
There are a variety of steps you can take to prevent gutter damage from snow, including but not limited to:
• Cleaning your gutters before winter arrives: It’s important to rid your gutters of any debris that could prohibit water from flowing through your gutters as intended.
• Use gutter guards: With these in place, you never have to worry about debris building up in your gutters. The only thing that’ll reach them is water.
• Insulate your roof and attic: Double-check to ensure that the proper insulation is in place. You may need to add some or add more.
If gutter damage from snow has caused you trouble in the past, take these steps to prevent the same situation in the future. Once you do these things, you’ll feel much better about your ability to protect your home over the cold winter months.
