Well Connecticut, you’ve enjoyed the nice Indian summer weather, haven’t you? The past two months have been mild to say the least and many of you probably forgot all about your gutters. With the leaves still coloring the scenic landscape the last thing on your mind is having your gutters inspected and cleaned before the winter season. And then you woke up this morning to blustery wind, rain and the sight of all those leaves falling into your exposed gutters.
Time in running out. Pretty soon the next time you wake up the ground will be covered in snow and ice will be forming on your gutters. If you think gutter cleaning is a luxury, think again. The average price for cleaning home gutters is $150. The average price for replacing a roof that has been damaged due to clogged gutters is $4,000. Now is not the time to bypass on crucial home maintenance.
At Connecticut Gutter & Exteriors we’ve seen some pretty bad roofs that could have been saved if the homeowner had just took the time to have the gutters professionally cleaned and inspected. Nothing can be worse than waking up in mid-January to snow falling in your bedroom from a damaged roof. Avoid these problems by having your home gutters cleaned as soon as possible. By ridding the gutter channels and downspouts of leaves, twigs and debris you can ensure water drains properly and you don’t experience any backup during rain and snow storms.
