It’s fall again! It’s the time of the year when Virginia Beach homeowners bust out their ladders, roll up their sleeves, and get cracking on their roofs and gutters before the first snow falls. It’s not a job anyone looks forward to, but we grin and bear it year after year because everyone and their mother knows how important functional gutters are to our roofs and homes.
It is a gutter system’s job to divert rainwater runoff away from your roof and straight into your drainage or collection systems. It sounds simple, but by doing so, gutters keep your roof and home safe from water damage that would otherwise severely weaken their structural integrity (not to mention cost you an arm and a leg to fix).
This is why any Virginia Beach roofing company worth its salt will urge you to clean your gutters before winter hits. With trees contributing more than their fair share of gutter debris this fall, the risk of blockages and water damage is no laughing matter. And clogged gutters are the last thing you want come winter. Without an unobstructed path for snowmelt, ice dams can form at your roof eaves and cause serious—and sometimes irreparable—roof damage.
So say you’ve mucked out all the leaves, twigs, and soggy debris from your gutters. What’s next? If you’re the kind of homeowner who likes to plan ahead, you might want to consider installing gutter guards. These gutter accessories are designed to keep debris out without obstructing the flow of water. That means your gutters stay clean much longer, making yearly hands-on maintenance easier (or in some cases downright unnecessary).
