As we continue through spring and move on to the warmer temperatures of summer, weather is a major factor to consider when forecasting your home maintenance needs. Broken and clogged gutters can allow rain to pool around your house, damaging exterior walls and making your home more susceptible to flooding.

Rain can also quickly damage roofs as it begins to wash away the coating from shingles, causing them to loose effectiveness in protecting your home from the elements. This can create additional problems throughout the home, increasing your repair costs over time.

It’s worth your time to inspect your gutters and to clear them of any debris before bad weather strikes. Clean gutters will help to move rain away from your home and keep it from pooling on the roof and around the base of the house. If you find that either your roof or gutters are in disrepair, you may want to call contractors in order to procure estimates for repairs or replacements.
