As a homeowner, one of the best things you can do to preserve the overall structure of your Colorado house is to maintain and upkeep your gutters. Your gutter system protects your house from the elements such as rain and snow. If you have considered seamless gutters, the time to get them may be now, while we are still in fall and before the winter cold strikes. Perhaps you are unsure about seamless gutters, because you are uncertain what they are and the benefits they can bring. Below is a detailed description of seamless gutters, and a list of their many benefits especially in Denver Colorado.
You may have noticed after a winter storm, icicles hanging from the eaves of your roof. You may have thought how pretty and idyllic they look, but they also are big trouble for any homeowner. Beautiful icicles are not the only thing to form after a big storm or freeze, they can also lead to ice dams in the roof gutters. Gutter ice dams are thick pieces of solid ice that can loosen the shingles on your roof, tear off your gutters, and cause water to back up and stream into your house. This water can cause stained or sagging ceilings, and warped paint and floors. Also, it can lead to moisture of the insulation in the attic, which can cause mildew and mold. Below are some tips to help prevent or get rid of gutter ice dams.
