April Showers Bring May…Gutter Damage?

Winter melt and spring and summer rains can bring tons of water onto your roof, putting pressure on gutters to protect the foundation of your house. While most homeowners check their gutters in the late fall and early winter, spring and summer call for a renewed need to maintain proper gutter efficiency.

April Showers Bring May…Gutter Damage?

Late spring and early summer in Virginia is characterized by snow melt and rain showers. Excess water damages paint and siding, leading to water forming around the foundation of your home. Without proper gutter maintenance, your home could be at risk for severe water damage and mold growth.

The cost of neglecting gutters during the wet season can be high—sometimes resulting in total siding replacement or structural repairs. Avoid expensive water damage by cleaning your gutters now instead of waiting for the fall.

Tree Debris

Deciduous trees drop debris in spring, which can clog gutters and horizontal downspouts. If you don’t maintain your gutters during the spring, they won’t be able to properly drain the upcoming rainfall during the summer months. When gutters get filled with leaves and other debris, they have no way of releasing water. This creates a backlog of water into your home.

Prime Time to Gut Your Gutters

If your gutters aren’t performing the way they should (e.g., they’re draining improperly, leaking, or bent), it’s important to replace them. The cost vs. value of RainPro gutters makes them a must-have. RainPro offers better design, a custom fit to match your home, maximum flow capacity, strong dent resistance, and designer color choices. To speak with a certified installer about cleaning or replacing your gutters with RainPro this year, contact HB Home Services.
