With winter fast approaching, have you taken the time to do the little things that can make a big difference for you and your home? Things that can save you from the winter hassle. From your roof, to your driveway, to your fireplace, you probably created a checklist to help you sort things out. So what’s in it for your gutter?
Mind Your Gutters
Okay, so you are particularly aware how your roof’s drainage system diverts water from the exterior and foundation walls of your home. This is the reason why you should keep this system flowing smoothly, as clogged gutters can cause serious issues such as water in your basement, or damage the external part of your home. Your gutter, if not properly maintained becomes more prone to corrosion and rusting.
So before winter officially starts, set aside some time to clean your gutters. Remove / scoop out the leaves, twigs – everything – even run some water through your downpipes to ensure that they are clear from any obstruction. If you need a professional team for your Marshalltown gutter cleaning, call us here at Seamless Exterior and we’ll be happy to help you out.
Install a Heated Gutter Helmet
Without proper drainage, the water melting from the snow accumulated on your roof can leak straight through the shingles. Proper gutter protection is imperative to your household overall – from your roof, ceilings, and walls – to insulation. Needless to say, heated gutters will help you save money from frequent repairs or replacements.
A gutter helmet will help keep your gutter system clean, and a heated gutter helmet will help prevent the build-up of ice dams in your roof during winter.
Here at Seamless Exterior, we thrive at the advantages of the Gutter Helmet, which includes a lifetime warranty, protection against mildew, insects, and cracks in your foundation and wood. It also prevents ice dam build-ups through the heated Gutter Helmet, provides a better system for gathering rainwater, helps you easily maintain your gutter, and helps prevent dirt and other debris.
So make sure you prepare your gutters in Marshalltown IA before winter starts. Call us today for professional gutter cleaning, and related services. We will be happy to assist you.
