Getting Your Gutters Ready

For Spring
Are you getting ready for the flurry of spring cleaning? It's that time of year when we emerge from the cold, Minnesota winter prepared to take on some outdoor projects. Maybe you like to make time to sweep out the garage, wash the windows, or add new flowers to your landscape. However, it's also a smart annual practice to prepare your gutters for spring too.

Winter Storm Damage to Gutters

Winter storms can be tough on gutters, especially if you've had ice dams or snow slides, and this winter was a windy one. There were several tornadoes and 11 severe weather warnings in Minnetonka, along with a few episodes of wind and hail. With December's 80mph winds in Wayzata and the west Minnesota metro area, many leaves of your ash and quaking aspen trees may now be lining your gutters. In addition, needles from your balsam fir and spruce trees may have gotten into your drain spout. Therefore, it's a good idea to check your gutters for damage each year as spring approaches.
Spring Means Inspecting Gutters

The spring season is the perfect time to get your gutters in good order, making sure they are free of clogs and ready to handle heavy rains. In addition, gutter drains should be flushed out to remove the buildup of winter debris.

Making a thorough inspection of your gutters around the perimeter of your roof would be a great addition to your "To Do" list before the spring rains begin. If you see broken sections that need replacing or resealing, it's an excellent time to schedule with a gutter company to fix the problems during this time of year quickly.

Gutter tasks for basic spring maintenance:

• Check for holes and leaks
• Check for damaged sections or joints
• Check for rust
• Check for gutter clogs
• Flush out drain spouts with a garden hose
• Clean out decayed leaves and tree debris

You may think it’s unnecessary, but checking for winter damage now is a proactive approach that can save you trouble in the months ahead. In addition, you'll have peace of mind knowing your gutters are ready when spring showers return to Minnesota!
