The Dangers of Clogged Gutters

Too often gutters are overlooked and cleaning them is another item on the never ending to-do list.  Gutters are an out-of-sight-out-of-mind part of your home — you only think about them when it’s raining and they overflow, and that’s not the time to clean them.

Before you know it, another month has gone by and they are still clogged and overflowing.  We sometimes hear from homeowners, “what’s the big deal – it’s just rain.”  Unfortunately, left unchecked, rain can lead to serious and expensive home repairs.

Well-performing gutters help avoid foundation damage, siding damage and roof damage.  The main purpose of working gutters and downspouts is to channel water away from the home and foundation.  When gutters are overflowing, water can gather near the foundation, and over time this causes cracks and weakens footings.  This can compromise the structural integrity and lead to settling, or water seeping into your interior spaces.  Plus, insects like termites love moisture and having wet ground near your house in never a good idea.

These are some of the reasons so many people turn to the GutterShutter gutter system.  Our patented and award-winning design keeps your gutters and downspouts from becoming clogged.  Plus, our six-inch gutter handles the large volume of water that comes from heavy downpours.

Your home is likely your biggest investment; be sure you are doing all you can to protect it and prevent costly damage and repairs.  Plus, with the GutterShutter gutter protection system, you won’t have to clean your gutters, ever!  You get to stay off the dangerous ladder, and free up time you used to spend cleaning gutters.

Prepare Your Home for the Fall Season With These Tips

Summer’s in full swing and it’s time for barbecues, outdoor dining, fresh flowers, green lawns and beach trips. The days may be hot but you’ve got long hours in the sunshine and can enjoy outdoor activities again. Summer is also perfect for getting a few things done around the house that will help improve your home and keep it in great shape for the rest of the year.

There are several home improvement and home maintenance tasks that you can do in the summer to get ready for the fall. These will also help you avoid problems commonly experienced in the autumn, such as extensive gutter cleaning that comes with falling leaves and changing weather.

Clean Out Dryer Vents

Dryers can cause fires if vents become clogged with dust and lint. In fact, as many as 16,000 dryer fires occur annually, according to the U.S. Fire Administration. Avoid house fires and damage to your property with just a few preventive steps. In addition to cleaning out the lint vent after each load, you can also clean out the housing with a vent-cleaning brush kit once a month. After you have cleaned out the dryer lint trap, disconnect the dryer duct from the dryer and the wall. Clean with a brush. Also clean the vent on the outside of the house.

Backyard & Pool Maintenance

If you have a pool, it is important to keep it clean both for hygiene and to extend the lifespan of the pool. Backyard and pool maintenance also prevents the formation of algae, mold and mosquito breeding grounds, and the accumulation of debris in the water and surrounding areas.

Clean Your Gutters & Add Gutter Guards

The gutters of your home can fill up with debris over the winter and even in the spring with heavy rains. This can lead to water damage in your home if left unaddressed. Knowing how much to clean gutters does require some skill and practice.

When gutters are well-maintained, they do a terrific job of regulating water flow from the roof down through the gutters to the ground. If, however, they get clogged with debris, plant matter, dust and other materials, gutters stop functioning. Water can pool around the foundation of the house, leading to structural damage and costly repairs.

Use gutter guards to keep your gutters clean and also proactively prevent clogs and ice accumulation in the future. Enjoy peace of mind this fall when you install GutterShutter.
