Clean and Screen in 2014!

You have gutters on your house. Great! That means you saved yourself hundreds, possibly thousands, of dollars in repair costs associated with water damage! But you can’t just stick them up and forget about them… You have to maintain them so that they work properly.
Gutters catch water that falls off the roof. Unfortunately, they catch other things that happen to fall off your roof as well, such as leaves, twigs, etc. This debris can clog your gutters and then when water rolls off your roof into the gutters, it can’t drain down the downspouts and ends up overflowing. The water then causes as much damage as it would if there were no gutters to begin with! And if there is enough debris, it can get soaked and heavy, causing sagging. This can throw off the slope of the gutters and even when you remove the debris, they can be bent out of shape and not work properly. In worst-case scenarios, the gutters can detach from the house and fall – which can cause damage to anyone or anything underneath them, as well as ruining the fascia boards they were attached to!
For these reasons, you need to be sure your gutters are cleaned at least once a year. If you have many trees around your home that shed a greater amount of leaves and debris you might have to clean them more frequently. If this is the case, you might want to consider getting gutter screens installed as well. Screens easily pop into place over the top of the gutters and allow water in, but block most other debris from getting inside the gutters and backing them up. Screens will not be a magical get-out-of-cleaning-your-gutters-free card. You will still need to pay attention and clear out debris that makes its way past the screens and also anything that might settle on them. It’s a far easier task, but it still must be done.
