Fall has finally arrived and the temperatures are dropping. This happens to be my wife's favorite time of year and as she calls it sweat shirt weather or sweater weather. Which I personally never understood here in Mississippi, because seasons only last a few weeks except for summer. Little sarcasm there but kind of true. Regardless of the temperatures when fall comes around the leaves will start falling. When that happens It is important to start our fall responsibilities and keep our gutters clean.
Why is it important to keep the gutters clean? Gutters are designed to take water away from your home. When your gutters become stopped and water can not drain, then water will go in a path of least resistance. And sometimes that's back into your home. This can cause several issues wood rot, decay and even pest problem.
So a few hours of cleaning leaves and debris out of your gutter can save you hundreds to thousand's of dollars. And that's your tip from the Inspector.
