This is Why Snow Guards & Gutters Should Go Hand-in-Hand

There are parts of our homes that most of us don’t think about all that often, until we’re forced to. One of those areas is our gutters. They’re there, they do their job, we clean debris & leaves out of them periodically throughout the year, spray them off from time to time to eliminate staining, and that’s pretty much the extent of it.

But bring on a winter storm, and those almost forgotten gutters may need some serious attention. Accumulated rooftop snow that eventually slides off in the form of an avalanche can leave your gutters hanging – literally – since they are directly in the line of fire.

Even if the area you live in receives only traces of snow on a yearly basis, one storm is all it takes. Your gutters and the areas immediately surrounding your home (landscaping, your deck, porch, air conditioning unit, BBQ grill, cars, pets, and most importantly, people) deserve protection from avalanching snow. Think of it as preventative maintenance.
