With the arrival of Spring, it’s a great time to perform a gutter audit. There are any number of things that can cause drainage issues, and it’s important to catch them early.
Are your gutters clogged? Take time to clear them, top to bottom, and run water through them to be sure they’re not blocked. A lot of debris could have built up throughout the Winter, and Spring will likely bring even more.
As you run water through to test for gutter blockages, it’s also a good time to check for leaks. As water runs through the gutter, check all sides to be sure there are no leaks. Now is the time to find and solve a problem like that before it’s too late. Pay particular attention to any water that is getting behind your gutter and against the fascia.
Are your downspouts pointing correctly, and directing water away from your home? Improper placement can result in basement leaks and/or siding damage. Don’t forget, these can get clogged too, and cause problems if water is allowed to pool near your foundation.
Lastly, take note of the types of trees you (and your close neighbors) have, and remember to keep an eye on them as they shed items onto your roof. Certain trees can be a nuisance, and are worth keeping an eye on!
