Climate Change and Gutter Issues | Jerrys Gutters

Climate change is real and one of the things it is impacting greatly is rain and water. It is resulting in storms that create heavy saturation, flooding, and even damage to property when your home gutters aren’t big enough to withstand the enormous amount of water.

If that is the case it may be time to upgrade or update your gutters as your existing gutters may begin to get clogged and potentially lead to a flood which nobody ever wants.

To avoid a situation like this here are two recommendations:

  • Get your gutters cleaned before the next big storm arises. It can make a big deal between avoiding a flood and getting one.
  • Watch for gutter functionality. When it is raining, check to see if water is leaking and flowing over the sides. It it is, your downspout could be clogged or your gutters could be at the wrong angle from moving water from your roof and away from your home.

With climate change progressing for the worse and big storms not slowing down, it is even more important to pay attention to your gutter system as it truly plays a major part in protecting your home.
