Your gutters are an essential part of your
roofing system. A properly functioning gutter system will move water from on
your roof to the ground. Fall and winter can cause a large amount of debris to
land in your gutters. This debris can end up causing blockages in the gutters
and downspouts, causing water to end up sitting on top of your gutters or on
the roof. As a result, your gutters could get too heavy and pull away from the
roof or rust can begin to form.
At least once a year, your gutters should have
all debris removed and should be cleaned to make sure they are working
properly. For your safety, it is best to hire a gutter cleaning company to
complete this on your behalf.
If you have branches hanging over your home,
there could be problems brewing. Not only could the branches end up falling on
your home, but leaves and other debris could be exacerbating the issues with
debris landing in your gutters and on your roof. In strong winds, the branches
could end up scratching or hitting your roof without falling off. For the
overall health of your roof, it's best to not have any branches or tree limbs
hanging over your roof.
To have them removed, contact a tree removal
company so they can remove the branch safely.
