Gutters are designed to keep water away from your roof and off of your property, allowing for the prevention of leaks, flooding, and damage to vulnerable areas of your exterior. The accumulated rain and snow can freeze in the winter, adding weight and tension to your home’s gutter systems. Keeping your gutters clean and free of debris can aid in the prevention of precipitation from pooling up and subsequently pouring over the sides. If your gutters are clean but you’re still seeing the same problems, your attic space may be inadequately insulated.If you’re starting to worry about the large icicles dangling above your home this winter, call the WNY Company at (716) 776-7663. Our crew can inspect your roof, gutters and attic to determine the best course of action to prevent problems from popping up again.
