However, your home winter prep shouldn’t end there, you also need to protect and winterizing your gutters. Here’s why winterizing your gutters is important and what it means to your gutters.

Ice and clogs in the gutters can damage your home

ice Icicles hanging from the eaves might seem like a picturesque winter scene, but ice hanging from your roof and gutters can do serious damage to your home. Ice in and around your gutters can force water back under your roof, which can cause serious damage to the roof and its supporting structure. The ice also can weigh down the gutters, pulling them down and away from your home or causing them to collapse. When your gutters aren’t properly functioning, due to a buildup of ice and debris in the winter, water can gain access to your home and your home’s foundation because your gutters are no longer doing their job of whisking water away from your home so it doesn’t do damage.

Winterizing your gutters can save your home from water damage

Winterizing gutters means clear your gutters of debris that can cause water to stand in them and turn to ice.

You should also check that they are able to bear additional weight should ice form in or on the gutters. You should constantly inspect and examine your gutters for cracks, separation or other damage. As damages of this sort could prevent your gutters from doing its job. Gutter winterization also offers the perfect opportunity to add gutter guards to your gutters. Gutter guards help to keep additional debris from building up and causing ice to form in your gutters.
