Gutter Protection is an Important Part of Home Maintenance

Protecting your gutters, especially in the summer, is an important aspect of a healthy home. Spring weather delivers a lot of rain, putting your gutters under a lot of stress and increasing the potential for structural damage in the process. Since rain seeps off of the roof into the gutters, the gutters take most of the rain, eventually clogging gutters with debris. This can lead to everything from pest infestation to leaks and cracks, potentially costing you a lot of money. For any gutter issues, our Hartford CT roofers at Peter L. Brown can help to solve the problem.

Summer is another season that will take a toll on your gutter system. This is why is is important to keep up with gutter protection in Hartford CT. What causes the most damage to gutters in the summer is the intense heat and summer storms. It is important to keep your gutters clean after storms. With gutter protection you’ll have clean gutters that are free of debris and prevent structural damage to your home.

Every season has a different effect on gutters, especially the fall. Fall gathers leaves and dirt in the gutters which in turn will quickly clog gutters and prevent them from properly functioning. If gutters are clogged, then water along with a build up of debris will overflow into the foundation of your home. If you are trying to save money by skipping on gutter maintenance this year, you may be in for a rude awakening if your gutters overflow into your foundation. This will damage your building’s structure, causing rot, mold build up – costing you a lot of extra money!

Protect your home by protecting your gutters with a leaf guard and gutter protection system from Peter L. Brown. We are here to help you to keep your gutters clean and the water flowing to prevent a buildup of debris. Proper gutter health means proper home health!
