Clogged gutters can wreak havoc on your roof, siding, and foundation. It is usually recommended to clean them out twice a year, but if you’re doing this yourself be sure you have a good ladder and a spotter to help out.
You may also want to consider a professional who will generally get up on a ladder to check and clear the gutters & downspouts of debris. This work can often be challenging due to baked on foliage (spring) or frozen leaves (winter) attached to the insides of the channels. Once complete, water is generally run through the system after the channels are cleared.
In addition you should check that all your downspouts are extended away from the foundation at the ground level. It may also be necessary to regrade your soil in some spots so that all water is directed away from your home.You or someone you know looking to buy or sell?
