Winter weather can take a toll on the external components of your home, including your gutters. Unfortunately, damaged gutters can lead to serious water damage in your home, particularly if left unattended during the winter. The good news is that an experienced contractor can easily install new seamless gutters even on a cold winter day.
Read on as Gutter Helmet® of Eastern NY explains what to expect when having your gutters replaced during the winter.
Gutter Installation During Winter
While it’s true that it is more convenient to schedule gutter installation before winter, don’t fret–an experienced contractor will know how to tackle the project successfully even if it needs to be done during the winter. Avoid the temptation to tackle this project yourself. Gutter installation is complicated and tricky in any season, but winter conditions can make it particularly hazardous and difficult. By turning to an experienced professional, you can rest easy knowing the installation will be done correctly and safely.
How to Care for Your Gutters in Winter
Gutter cleaning is best done before winter. When leaves, twigs and other debris collect inside your gutters, this can affect the gutter system’s performance during the freeze/thaw cycle. Buildup can prevent the gutters from doing its job properly, so you should avoid this from the get-go.
Make sure to remove any snow that lands on the edge of your roof as soon as possible. This could eventually turn into ice dams, which could cause bigger problems for you later on.
