February 23, 2022

If you’ve been keeping up-to-date on our blog, you’ve probably seen us talking about preparing for winter. This comes in many ways, but one of the most important ones is your residential gutters. Gutters provide many benefits to your home, especially in the winter. Coates Bros. is sharing the top 2 ways to make sure your gutters are ready for when the cold weather hits!

1. Inspect Your Residential Gutters

If your gutters have any cracks or leaks, they could be causing more damage than you think. Inspect your gutters for clogs, cracks or damage by walking around your home and noting any issues you find.  Or call the residential gutter professionals at Coates Bros. to walk around your home and inspect your gutters for damage.

2. Pay Attention to your Home’s Foundation

Take a look at the areas where your home’s foundation meets the ground. If you see water damage on the home or pooling water on the ground, your gutters could very well be causing the problem! If your gutters aren’t functioning properly, water could be leaking and pooling near your home. This could cause leaks into your home’s foundation which could even seep into your basement or crawlspace. If you do find water around your foundation, look up! See if the gutters on that area of your home are working properly.
