Gutters are an instrumental element of your roof. They protect the rest of your home from runoff of water and debris. During the fall, your gutters are bombarded with leaves, and as the weather gets colder, they begin to get filled with snow and ice. All of these natural elements, if not cleaned and removed regularly, can cause serious damage to your gutters.

Here are some tips from Clayton Homes to help you keep your gutters clean during those colder months:

  • Before freezing weather hits, be sure to clean all of the fall debris, such as leaves and twigs, from your gutters. Otherwise, dirty gutters can cause water to build up and freeze, leading to holes in your gutters, or even causing your gutters to fall off.
  • If your home receives a considerable amount of winter weather, consider having a professional install heating options for your roof and gutters.
  • If ice does begin to accumulate around your gutters, you can add calcium chloride to your gutters. However, be sure not to confuse this with rock salt, which can actually cause damage to your gutters and roof.
  • You can also use tools such as ice picks and chisels to remove ice from your gutters. However, this requires extra care so as not to damage your gutters or to cause personal injury. Don’t hesitate to call a roofing professional to have this done.
