With the 2019 hurricane season upon us, and Tampa Bay experiencing our typical summer rain showers and wind storms, it is vital to keep your roof gutters clean to protect your home and property.
Gutter cleaning should be a regular part of your home’s roof care. With all of the rain, storms, lightning, wind, and threat of tropical storms and hurricanes, it is smart to provide the proper care and maintenance for your roof. Neglecting your roof can lead to damage that may be expensive to repair, cause you to replace your entire roof or could cause loss of personal property through roof leaks, mold damage, etc.
Debris and leaves build up in your gutters and downspouts, which can cause water damage to your fascia and roof. If the water pours over your gutter instead of through your downspout, it can damage your home’s foundation or crawlspace.
How Often Should You Clean Your Gutter?
Plan on cleaning your gutter after a big storm, or every fall and spring each year.
A problem that will hurt your roof, gutters or structure of your home is if your trees are too close to your property. When one of these storms pop up, the tree can come down on top of your home and cause significant damage. Plus, if the roots of a large tree start growing too close to your home, it can affect your foundation.
Some general rules about how close a tree should be planted to your home:
