With summer coming to an end, it’s the perfect time to do a little end-of-summer maintenance on the leaf guard and gutters of your Denver-area home. Autumn and winter are hardworking times for the gutters on your house, so taking a moment before the seasons change to ensure everything is working properly can save you a lot of headaches–as well as a lot of repair bills–in the coming months. Here are some things you’ll want to look for on the leaf guard and gutters of your home:
- Make sure your gutters are securely fastened to the fascia of your home. If you notice the gutter starting to pull away from the fascia, reattach it or call a gutter repair professional to do it for you. Don’t put this repair off, either; if your gutter tears away from the fascia, it can end up doing a lot of costly damage to your home.
- Check your gutters for any warping or damage. Gutters can suffer from warping caused by extreme heat and extreme cold as well as damage from falling or blowing debris. These issues can cause issues with the way the gutters on your home function, leaving you vulnerable to leaks.
- Clean out your gutters from the spring and summer season. If your don’t have a leaf guard installed on the gutters in your home, you’ll want to make sure your gutters are clean and ready for the fall season.
