We’ve touched on gutter cleaning before. It’s everyone’s least favorite part of yard work, but it’s also one of the most important chores when it comes to preserving the value of your home.
Special consideration needs to be given to gutter cleaning in winter, especially here in North Carolina where the chilly season can be unpredictable. Fortunately, AAA Window Solutions is here to give you some words of caution about the importance of winter gutter cleaning.
Winter Weather Leads to Water Damage, or Worse
If you neglect your gutters, winter weather can create problems that are even worse than they would be during other times of year. You want to keep your gutters clean to avoid creating a breeding ground for pests and to reduce the risk of water damage to your home. Fallen leaves and debris prevent water from draining, causing it to pool up instead and potentially cause your roof or walls to rot from the inside.
In the winter, snow and ice can make these drainage problems more harmful than before. Meltwater can cause sudden issues if it doesn’t have a clear path to the ground, and you might end up with damage to your gutters themselves or even structural damage to your home.
Fortunately, the climate here in Charlotte gives you more than one chance to get the job done. Since winter likes to come and go instead of sticking around the whole season, North Carolinians usually get a break between snow storms which make for the perfect time to have your gutters cleaned if you forgot to do so before. Don’t wait too long, though. You never know when Old Man Winter will send the next storm our way.

Cold weather can also make the shingles on your roof brittle and prone to damage. Once more, our methods are the best when it comes to keeping your gutters clean and your roof in excellent condition.
