The end of summer means different things to different people. Back to school. The start of football season. The start of foliage season. If you are homeowner it also means its time to start routinely cleaning out your gutters. Pine needles dead leaves acorns and twigs are just some of the many forms of debris that can gather in your gutters over the course of the summer. This build up can prevent water from properly draining down your gutters downspouts. Keeping your gutters clean and free from debris is important all year but especially as fall rolls around and the buildup of debris is hastened by dying tree branches.
This will eventually weaken and damage gutters hindering their ability to drain water properly. As water builds up to the point where it spills over the side your gutters you can expect the dirty sludge to spill over as well causing unsightly stains on your gutters facade and the sides of your home. Preventing Ice Dams - Routinely cleaning gutters in autumn will pay off well into winter when those nasty snow storms - dubbed "snowmageddon" in the Northeast - dump mounds of snow on your roof. Even before the temperature rises back above freezing the snow starts to melt from the heat emanating out of your home. This heat will melt the snow from the bottom up sending sheets of water down to your gutters.

The gutter maintenance can be done periodically with ease even by the non-professionals.

Pros:· Less expensive than seamless gutter · Maintenance should be done by the professionals.· Defect portion can be easily replaced without disturbing the rest.
