How To Prepare Your Gutters For Spring

How To Prepare Your Gutters For Spring

Slowly but surely, the weather will soon be warming up and a Calgary spring will be upon us once again. This means that snowmelts and rain are on their way, and all of that water will need somewhere to go. To make sure your home is prepared for the change of season, give your gutters some much needed seasonal care so that water can effectively run off of your roof and can be directed away from your home. Proper gutter care will decrease the risk of flooding in your home and water damage to the roof and attic. Here are some ways to care for your gutters as spring approaches.

5 Ways To Care For Gutters

1. Inspect The Gutters. During the winter, your gutters can become clogged with twigs, dead leaves, and other debris, while extreme weather, such as a Calgary cold snap, may have caused cracks, holes, or other damage. Large holes or cracks might be able to be seen from the ground but to properly inspect your gutters either you, or a professional, need to climb a ladder to get a close look to see inside the gutters.

2. Check The Roof. Look for damages caused by ice dams. Ice dams are extremely common in the winter and they can impact both your shingles and your roof. Ice dams are formed when snow or ice meets the warmth of your roof and melts, but then the resulting water has nowhere to go. This water then freezes and can get under shingles and into your roof.  You should also check for loose or damaged shingles. These can be caused by age, high winds, or impact (including damage from putting up/taking down Christmas lights).

3. Consider Gutter Guards. Gutter guards are a type of screen or covering that protects your gutters from debris, allowing the water to smoothly flow through. Gutter guards reduce the amount of cleaning necessary.

4. Look For Rust. Whether you have a metal roof or just metal gutters, rust can cause structural issues. Rust is a form of corrosion and can easily lead to holes in your roof or gutters. It needs to be patched and refinished before causing any damage to the roof or other areas of the home. You can get metal roofs and gutters professionally cleaned and patched so that you are not up on the roof or ladder with sandpaper and wire brush.

5. Keep An Eye Out For Mold In The House. When the gutters are unable to properly drain, the water has nowhere to go other than in the house. If your gutters are clogged, damaged, or otherwise in bad shape, you may notice either mold or water damage in your attic. Having this damage repaired and taking steps to avoid future damage is imperative to the longevity of your roof and the comfort of your home.
