It is official. The hurricane season is upon us. Subtropical Storm Alberto’s effects were felt throughout parts of Georgia with heavy rains and winds. Gutters are definitely full and overflowing at most homes which can cause all kinds of problems.
If you own or live in a home, most likely you have gutters and need to make sure that you clean them regularly especially during the storm season. Rain cutters protect your landscape plantings, siding and foundation.
Here is some information about cleaning your gutters and simple steps to tackle the job:
Plan on thoroughly cleaning your home’s gutters every spring and fall or after a big storm.
Your gutter and downspouts can have leaves, twigs, pine needles and debris that build up and cause water damage to your fascia (board behind gutter) and roof. If the water pours over your gutter it can damage your home’s foundation, basement or crawlspace.
If you don’t mind paying an arm and a leg, you can install gutter covers. They come in mesh screens, clip-on grates, or porous foam. Covers need maintenance too to keep them clear.
A splash block keeps water from coming out of the downspouts away from your home’s foundation. It is a very important element. It also keeps you from digging a trench next to the house.
