Gutters are prone to gathering debris like dried leaves, dirt, branches and seeds, which clog up your gutters and prevent water from draining out of your gutters. You have to make sure that your gutters are always clear of debris so that they can perform properly. However, gutter cleaning and maintenance is a dangerous task you shouldn’t tackle on your own. Leave it to the Chattanooga professional gutter installers to work on your gutters. Read more
As winter looms in the distance, the dropping temperatures can result in extra wear and tear on your homes roof. It’s important that property owners in the Chattanooga and North Georgia areas know how to properly maintain their roofing systems. Using the following three tips, you can fend off roofing damage this winter as well as increase its longevity.
Monitor Your Roofs Ventilation Throughout the Winter
Poor ventilation and insulation in your attic can put your roof at risk of becoming damaged during the winter. Inspect your attic for proper ventilation and undamaged insulation. Consistent airflow in the attic is crucial to protect the integrity of your roof. When a home has poor roof ventilation or minimal insulation hot air and moisture radiate into the attic resulting in a cold upper floor and energy loss. Condensation from the roof deck can cause interior water damage, while condensation on the roof deck can cause mildew and wood rot.
Ensure Your Gutters Are Working Properly
Gutters and downspouts should be continually monitored and cleared, if needed. As snow begins to melt, it will need clear routes to drain properly. Any leftover leaves or debris in gutters can clog and obstruct water flow. If water collects in gutters, it can create seriously problems as temperature drop overnight. Standing water can damage your siding, fascia or the foundation of the house. This may be a great time to look into having gutter guards installed on your home.

Your rain gutters are an essential part of your home’s roofing system. They funnel rain and stormwater from your roof away from your home and its foundation. Missing, cracked, broken or clogged gutters can lead to water damage down the exterior walls of your home, and excessive amounts of water dripping or falling over your gutters can damage the foundation and/or leak into your crawlspace. To avoid these problems, it’s encouraged to inspect and maintain your gutters regularly. Read more
