Gutter Talk--Gutter and Downspout Maintenance

So, yesterday we had a taste of Spring here in the Northeast...and today, it is not as cold as they forecasted. This is allowing for a slow melt... a good thing. The ground and drainage systems have time to absorb the water. It gives us, the home owners a chance to run outside and check out the damage from this Winter Assault we have endured. This is your big chance before the next Winter Blast....or the Spring Rain to...

Check your gutters.

As I drive around town, I see lots of hanging gutters. The icicles were beautiful but they wreak havoc on gutters and downspouts. Many forgot to clear their gutters this fall. A task that should really take place quarterly. So go for it, make sure they are still attached to the house and that the downspouts are still connected and clear, and that they are directed away from the house. If there is some damage call the "Gutter Guys" in town and get some help. This little bit of maintenance could prevent a more drastic spring flood in your basement.

And as we dream about Spring....
Think about scheduling your Air Conditioning Maintenance...
