Fall and Winter Gutter Cleaning

Maintenance

According to the Insurance Information Institute, ice, snow and wind can have devastating consequences. Every winter there are billions of dollars in insured losses due to burst pipes, frozen gutters and other weather-related disasters.

Remove leaves, acorns, sticks and other debris from gutters, so melting snow and ice can flow freely. And check your roof insulation. Improper insulation and ventilation in your attic are at the root of most ice daming and gutter back-up causing leaks.
