Edina MN Seamless Gutters and Gutter Guards
The days are getting cooler, the nights are getting longer, and another Minnesota winter is just around the corner. Ugh! After a summer that felt like it lasted about 5 minutes, homeowners are getting their homes ready to do battle with the elements. And in Minnesota, the elements can be brutal. Especially this year… the Farmer’s Almanac is predicting a doozy. Very cold with lots and lots of snow!
So, before the cold winter season gets underway, check that your gutters are still in good shape. Clean and inspect them and make any necessary repairs, such as reattaching sagging sections that no longer slope enough to do any good. Make no mistake, if you don’t do it now you could end up with BIG BIG problems later. You don’t want to have to climb on your snow-covered roof this winter to replace them!
If you’ve already done it, great… you’re doing better than some. All too often folks wait until it’s too late. Clogged gutters contribute to ice dams that are all too common during our Minnesota winters (that means wet ceilings and moldy attics). Or worse… roof damage. Unfortunately, it often doesn’t show up until the damage has already occurred. Many roofs look absolutely fine from the ground even though they have been totally compromised. Remember, 95% of all roof problems cannot be seen from ground level.
It goes without saying that it most homeowners are not comfortable climbing up on their roofs when it involves ladders, heavy ice, and slippery roofs to look at their gutters and even if they do, most of the time they don’t know what they are looking at. That’s why it’s important to have the experience of a reputable Minnesota company who is aware of these issues and can spot any problem areas.
Considering the risks involved when they are neglected – and the benefits you gain when they are properly maintained, you would do well to contact an Edina MN gutter installation contractor for a free gutter inspection today.
