Why This Fall Might Be The Best Time For New Gutter Installation

Why This Fall Might Be The Best Time For New Gutter Installation

We’ve all heard of spring cleaning, but what about fall maintenance? This time of year is vital for preparing your home for winter before the air gets too chilly and the roof and gutters too frozen. By getting your home ready for the fall, you can prevent gutter issues in the winter when a Chinook comes and melts the snow off of your roof. Taking preventative steps also means saving your home from issues come springtime when all of the snow starts to rapidly melt. Fall is the time for gutter care to make sure the water can actually flow and the gutters can properly do their job. Here are the reasons that fall is the perfect time to inspect your gutter and, if needed, to schedule new gutter installation before everything starts to freeze.

Benefits Of Fall Gutter Installation

Get Ready For Winter
Calgary winters are notorious for the repeated freezing and thawing of snow. This leads to large volumes of snowmelt that can cause issues for various parts of the home. Snowmelt is damaging to homes as it leads to sudden accumulations of water that can pool at the base of your home. It also means your roof and gutters end up supporting a lot of weight. Slush or partially melted snow is very heavy and moves slowly, so it can weigh down gutters and put them at risk for tearing off the home. If the gutters are rusted and uneven, the slush may be slow to go down the gutter. New gutter installation ensures that your gutters are ready for heavy snow and frequent snowmelts.

Prevent Flooding
The main purpose of gutters is to direct water away from the home. If your gutters are rusted, damaged, or clogged, the water will have nowhere to go and this will lead to water either overflowing or pouring right through the gutters. If this happens, water will collect at the base of your home and may seep into your basement, leading to a flooded basement. Basement flooding is especially common in older homes or houses that don’t have a good seal on the windows.

Minimize Foundation Damage
If your water overflows the gutters, it can do more than just flood the basement. When water is continuously collecting at the base of the house instead of being directed away, it wears down your foundation and causes damage. Water at the base of your house can erode the dirt that the foundation is built into and it can get into the foundation itself and cause cracking. These cracks become worse as water freezes within them and expands. Over time, this can lead to significant home damage that can cost a lot of money to fix.

Save Your Fascia
If your gutters aren’t doing what they are supposed to, water won’t just fall to the base of the house. When water spills over the sides of the gutters, it can get on the underside of the roof, and soak the fascia. This might seem inconsequential, but it can actually cause a lot of damage. When fascia gets wet, it can lead to mold or rot within the wood. It can also lead to cracks in the fascia as the water freezes and thaws throughout winter. This can then allow pests and moisture into the roof, which can lead to other issues in the home. If your attic has moisture in it or if the fascia is letting in too much air, it can change the circulation of the air in your roof and alter your home’s ability to regulate temperature.

 

Get Gutter Installation This Fall

It’s best to get your gutter installation completed early before you’ll actually need your gutters at full capacity during winter melts. Trying to replace your gutters while snow is melting off of your roof will not only overcomplicate the process, it can cause your gutters to be out of commission while they are replaced, leading to water issues in the meantime. New gutter installation from a trusted Calgary roofing company is best to do before the winter hits.
