Post-Storm Care for Your Gutters

During the storm, it is highly possible that water can overflow your gutters before making it to the downspout. This can affect your property’s structural integrity. Thus, it is important that you regularly check your gutters to ensure that they are still doing their job. While the sun’s out, it’s best to remove leaves and debris from your gutters. You may get rid of them by using a trowel or hose. There may also be some debris in the downspout that you want to investigate.
