It’s rainy season – Check your gutters

    As of June, the Southeast experiences a lot more rain.  Indeed, we sometimes have the potential to get floods.  That’s why it’s important to check your gutters.  Better Homes and Gardens has a great checklist for you.

    Always make sure your gutters are sealed and secure to protect from damage

    Clogged gutters are never fun to clean.  If you have a sturdy ladder and a big brush, it’ll become much easier – and your foundation will thank you for it.

    While climbing up ladders to clean your gutter may be unpleasant, your foundation will be better off for it

    Check for holes.  One missed little crack can mean a lot of water after a heavy rainstorm.  As many Upstate residents will tell you, these rainstorms can occur often during the rainy season, so it’s best to be prepared.

    Another issue is detached gutters.  While you may think your gutters are securely fastened, it’s always best to check.  The last thing you want is to have your gutters get detached during the aforementioned storms.  The force of the wind and rain is not something to take lightly.

    The Powell Group encourages you to inspect your house for gutter issues.  We also have several resources to help you, and our team members are here to answer any of your housing questions and concerns.
