As the new year approaches, it’s time to start thinking about home maintenance. One of the most important parts of your home’s exterior is the gutters. Neglecting to properly maintain your gutters can lead to costly repairs in the future, so it’s important to stay up-to-date with your gutter maintenance. Big Orange Gutters is here to share some of our top tips for gutter maintenance as you start a new year.

First and foremost, it’s important to check the condition of your gutters. Look for any signs of wear and tear, like cracked, split, or damaged gutters. If you notice any of these signs, it’s time to call a professional to repair or replace them. In addition, it’s also important to check for any clogs or blockages. Leaves and debris can easily build up in your gutters and can cause major problems if left unchecked. Check your gutters regularly and clear out any debris that you find.

Another important step in gutter maintenance is to clean your gutters. It is essential to prepare for the winter season before it begins. Cleaning your gutters before the winter season prevents ice from forming in them and causing damage. You can clean your gutters yourself with a ladder, a hose, and a trowel, or you can hire a professional to do it for you. Additionally, don’t forget to inspect and clean your downspouts. Make sure that they are free of leaves and debris and that they are connected properly.

Once you’ve cleaned your gutters, it’s time to think about gutter protection. Gutter protection is a great way to prevent leaves and debris from clogging up your gutters in the first place. Big Orange Gutters offers a variety of gutter protection options that can help you keep your gutters clear of debris and reduce the need for frequent cleaning. We also offer gutter guards that can help keep animals out of your gutters and prevent damage from occurring.

When it comes to gutter maintenance, it’s also important to inspect your roof. Make sure to check for any missing or damaged shingles and to look for any signs of wear and tear. If you notice any issues, it’s best to call a professional to repair them. Additionally, you should also check for any signs of water damage, like leaking or standing water. If you find any of these signs, it’s important to call a professional right away to prevent further damage.

Finally, it’s important to check your gutters for any signs of rust. Rust can quickly spread and cause major damage to your gutters and your home’s exterior. If you notice any signs of rust, it’s best to call a professional to inspect the gutters and repair any corrosion.
