Tips to clean out your gutter

Now that you know what damage not cleaning your gutter can do to your home, we wanted to share some tips with you on cleaning that gutter out.

  1. Gutter 2Keep that ladder out and clean out all the debris that has been left in the gutter.  One way to do that is to use a pressure washer.  Keep that debris though, it could be used for mulch.
  2. Check all your spikes and make sure that the spikes are properly placed throughout the gutter.  You may need to consider getting some new ones, if warranted.
  3. Use bead silicon sealing to close up any leaks your gutter may have.  This sealant will be proven effective against rain, snow, and ice.
  4.  Inspect all the rivets that need to go into your gutter also.  It may be time to replace them.  Any local hardware store will have the rivets and a rivet gun for you to purchase.
  5. Before using the pressure washer, make sure your gutter is securely fastened with all the new rivets and spikes.
  6. If your gutters are rusted out, you may want to consider replacing them with aluminum or vinyl gutters.

Now that your gutters are all taken care of, let’s move onto the next in our home improvement series, chimney repair.

Gutter problems

In an earlier article, we discussed tips to get your home ready for the fall season.  These tips are important, so there could be no potential denial of coverage should you need to file a claim.

In this article, we want you to know what happens when you don’t clean out your gutter and the potential damage it could cause.

  • GutterLeaking gutters.  On the extreme side leaky gutters can also cause leaky roofs, mold, and it can rot away at the surroundings.
  • Leaky roofs.  If your gutter is filled with debris, any rain, snow, or ice, won’t be able to go anywhere, causing a leaky (and expensive repair) roof.
  • Basement leaks.  Gutters usually end up at the foundation of the house.  If there is any damage to the run off, then the water can wind up in your basement.
  • Rotted Wood.  Some houses and/or foundations are made of wood.  If the gutter is not properly taken care of, the build-up will cause wood to rot.
  • Cracks in foundation.  Same principle as above.  Any debris left can create cracks in the foundation.

This fall, don’t let your gutter get the best of you.  Stay tuned for Scurich’s tips to clean out your gutter.

Fall Home Improvement Time

HomeThe leaves are changing colors and Starbuck’s famous Pumpkin Spice Latte has made its official appearance for the fall season.  Everyone is getting ready for fall, so should you.

A major stipulation of your homeowner’s insurance policy is maintenance of your home.  It is not uncommon for carriers to deny payment of a claim for any damage to your home, if it has been found that your home has not received the proper maintenance.  Here at Scurich Insurance Services, we don’t want to see that happen, so here is your fall checklist of home improvements.

  • Grab a ladder and clean out the gutters.  Yes, those fall leaves are pretty but if your gutters are clogged with them, any rain or snow could create a bigger problem in the future.
  • Get your caulk gun out and start sealing up all the cracks you see around the windows and doors.
  • Winterize your pipes.  This is the perfect time to do it, before it gets too cold.
  • Repair your drive before the winter comes.  This is actually a better spring project, but if you didn’t get around to doing it before now, do it now.
  • Call the chimney guy.  Fall means the start of colder weather.  You need to make sure your chimney is clean before lighting your first fire.
  • Replace or clean your furnace filters.

For more information about your homeowner’s policy, contact Scurich Insurance Services today.
