Don’t forget to clean your gutters

Fall has arrived in the North Georgia mountains! This means the leaves will begin piling up in your yard and in your gutters! Clogged gutters can cause major problems for your home if left untreated! Some of these problems are:

•Water can overflow onto wood surfaces which will eventually lead to rot and can also cause puddling around the foundation which can lead to damp or leaky basements.
•Water can back up into the walls or be rerouted and come in through the roof which can lead to very expensive repair costs.
•Standing water in your gutters can become a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
•In the winter time when temperatures drop water can freeze into heavy blocks of ice which can cause your gutters to pull away from your home.

Remember there is only a short window between when the leaves start to fall and freezing temperatures so be sure to schedule your next gutter cleaning service ASAP so that you can keep your home looking beautiful and avoid unnecessary repair costs!
