Bloomington MN Seamless Gutters and Gutter Guards
WOW… July was HOT, and August is coming in even hotter. It was 15F degrees cooler in the deserts of southern California than it was in Minnesota this week. Two record highs in a row. No doubt about it, the past year has brought some strange weather. And now comes word that the 2014 Farmer’s Almanac is predicting a very cold and snowy winter for much of the USA.
They’re using a very strong four-letter word to describe this coming winter, which is C-O-L-D! The almost 200-year-old almanac again comes out Monday, and the AP reports it’s predicting a harsh winter, one that could even bring a blizzard to the first outdoor Super Bowl in years.
I know it may be hard to believe, but another summer is almost history. It’s just a matter of time before another Minnesota winter arrives with a vengeance (probably sooner than later). Winter may still seem a long way off, but eventually the snow is going to fly. We all know that there’s a great deal to be done before winter comes knocking again.
Although many of us consider fall a time to relax and watch football, don’t pick up the remote until you’ve done the nasty chore of cleaning the goop out of the gutters. Even a small amount of debris can prevent them from doing their job and cause water to backup and spill over the top which will ultimately lead to damage to your home’s foundation, roof, siding, soffit, fascia and landscaping or even basement flooding.
Also, keeping your gutters clear will ensure that your gutters drain properly as the winter sun warms your rooftop and causes snow melt (it’s this very snow melt that can lead to ice dams). Yikes!

Forget the dangerous ladder and scooper to get all those leaves out. Now there is a seamless gutter system that keeps almost all dirt from clogging gutters, downspouts and drain systems. Because of their unique one-piece, seamless design, seamless gutter systems eliminate clogs and allow water to flow freely. Designed for homeowners who want to move away from the weekend hassle of cleaning your gutters to enjoying weekend football, seamless gutter systems deflect debris from nearby trees including pine needles, leaves, and small branches.
