This week was summer solstice, and we are officially kicking off summer! This means entertaining family and friends and generally enjoying the exterior and outdoor entertaining spaces of our homes. In this post, we explore couple tips to maintain the exterior of your home – some, which you may not even, think about – and will get your home looking and feeling great!
Although it is summer, and gutters may not be on the top of your mind, there are some helpful tips you can implement during a beautiful summer weekend off that will help to protect and maintain your gutters (and ultimately your home): Guards!
Although fall and winter are the main seasons in which your gutters take a beating, depending on the foliage around your home, summer could also wear down your gutters.
There are a variety of guards available for homes, including leaf guards, screens and filters. Gutter guards have been known to reduce the frequency of cleanings. Installing a gutter guard properly should lessen the number of times you’ll have to clean your gutters.
Moisture is always around us. When it rains, snows or just within the air we breathe. Moisture can cause a lot of issues, including damage to your home but also damage to your health. In this post, we look at the problems moisture can cause and how to prevent it.
A season of dirt and dust will take the shine away from any well maintained home, or business. No matter how wonderful your choice of paint or siding, the collective dirt and dust in the air is constantly conspiring to ruin that look over time. In addition, patios, decks, outdoor entertainment areas and the houses exterior often need some TLC after the Fall and Winter hard weather conditions. As summer approaches and the weather is getting warmer, all of us home-owners are looking forward to enjoying our outdoors for parties, BBQs and sunny Sunday afternoons with the family.
Late spring is a great time to care for your gutters. Throughout spring, there can be so many different weather conditions, including heavy rain as well as high wind that can cause leaves, needs or other debris to fall into your gutters. Not to mention, through the fall and winter, ice and snow can actually damage them.
