For weeks we’ve been stressing the need to prepare your gutters for the spring rains. Today the rain started falling and the forecast is calling for steady showers through Sunday. If you didn’t inspect your gutters after the rough winter we just had, you could be looking at some serious problems real soon.
Lucky for you, it won’t take an expert to tell you that your gutters are in need of repairs or replacing. Seeing the water spill over the gutter lids, creep up under the shingles and leak through your ceiling and pool in the gutter channels will be enough to alert you that something is wrong.
If you have neglected cleaning your gutters, there is no time to waste. The rain we are seeing now is just a precursor to the spring showers that will continue through May. This period is a very dangerous time of your home has leaking gutters or a roof that is in need of repair.
After the rough winter we just experienced, there’s a good chance you have clutter and debris in your gutter channels and downspouts. This muck will create clogs that will hinder the proper draining of rainwater and cause problems for your home. Not only will clogs create excess weight on the gutters but it can also lead to water leaking through the ceiling and also pooling at the foundation of your home.
