Check Your Gutters 

Gutter maintenance is a chore that nobody wants to perform, but clean gutters are essential components of a healthy roof. The primary purpose of your gutters is to direct water away from your home, but if they’re clogged with leaves and other debris, then the excess water may be left sitting on your roof. Stagnant water will eventually soak through your roof and into your ceiling and walls, putting your home at risk of water damage and mold. Structural damage is something that no homeowner wants to deal with, so take the time to check your gutters before the next big storm. If you’re looking for a way to reduce the amount of time it takes you to clean your gutters, then be sure to check out our Gutter Defender gutter guard!

Be Mindful During Rainstorms

You should make a habit of watching for leaks inside your home, even if your gutters are spotless. Your roof may have weak spots that allow water to drip through, especially if your home is more than 20 years old. Check your carpet for wet spots, and be sure to call a roofing company as soon as you notice a leak.
