Winter gutter protection begins with protecting your home from ice damns and build up that can cause damage and pose a risk to you and your family. How can icy gutters be dangerous you ask? It’s simple.  As freezing temperatures approaches, standing water in gutters left as a result of faulty or clogged gutters can begin to ice over. Once this happens, gutters can no longer drain. Ice damns can begin to form.  If gutters aren’t clear and free flowing, rain and melting snow can build up in gutters and overflow onto fascia and down siding, re-freezing and causing water damage to the interior and exterior of homes. If this happens, run hot water over your gutters to thaw the ice, and then clean them immediately.
