Fall is right around the corner, so it’s time to get ready before the leaves start falling! We’ll help you learn what to do with your gutters before fall arrives. It’s essential to prepare your gutters for the fall because of all the different weather. Here are a few tips on preparing your gutters for this fall season.
Clean out Your Gutters
Summer has been pretty dry, but we’ve seen some storms roll through in the past few months. That means there’s very likely some, if not a lot, of debris in your gutter system if you haven’t taken a look at it lately. Part of preparing your gutters for fall is cleaning them thoroughly, so grab a tall ladder from your garage and look up there. Then, scoop out all the debris to make room for the weather.
Look for Damage
The next thing you need to do to prepare your gutters for fall is to look for damage on them. As we said before, some storms have rolled through, so your gutters may have endured some damage that you’re not aware of yet. You need to look for loose pieces, cracks, rust, and leaks, among other things. If you’re unsure about the damages, call a professional like ours at Bailey’s Roofing and Construction to come and inspect the gutters for you!
After you’ve looked into the damage, you need to repair it! Some repairs can be simple enough to do yourself. You can pick up some supplies at a hardware store and get it done pretty quickly. If you’re unsure what supplies you’ll need or want a professional to do the repairs, Bailey’s is a call away!
If you have any outstanding branches around your roof, you need to make sure you trim those back. The branches could break and fall on your gutters in a bad storm, causing severe damage.
Fall is right around the corner, so it’s time to get moving! Check out your gutters while it’s getting cooler out, and take care of them. It’s better to take care of them now and get minor damage repaired than needing to have the whole gutter system replaced after some severe weather. Contact Bailey’s Roofing and Construction for a consult or repairs. We’d be happy to take a look and help you out!
