The drop in temperature that signals the beginning of fall has already begun and had us here at Brothers Gutters planning for the upcoming season. Some recent marketing work had us realizing just how much different this fall season could be from seasons in the past.
The summer has been one for the record books. By the middle of July, we had received the yearly average rainfall amounts for a typical summer in the Hudson Valley of 14 inches. One rainfall in August alone dispensed of 5 inches within a few hours clearing us of that record. Without even looking at rainfall totals, our jobs were telling the tale of a very wet summer. Our job list is a telling story of the reactions we have been resolving due to the heavy rainfall plaguing our customers.
With every rainfall, your gutters need to perform well to prevent a bevy of problems that could develop into future home renovations or costly repairs. When water is not leaving through the designed downspout, the house could be taking on water from gutter overflow, poorly seamed gutters, improper installation or other problems. Having seen these problems in the past, we have constructed informational resources to guide a homeowner in proactive options. Here is a quick glimpse into some of our past articles that have great information in them.
- Gutter Cleaning Costs discusses factors concerning clogged gutters
- Signs Gutters Are Causing Water Damage discusses warning signs that water is causing damage to the home
- Clogged Gutters Cause Danger Around The Home discusses the dangers associated with gutter cleaning and clogged gutters
Now that we are approaching the season of hurricane weather and fall foliage, we don’t need a crystal ball to prognosticate our job list. The beautiful leaves we will be enjoying will make their way onto the roofs and into the gutters. Trees we thought would never soil the gutters will defy logic when the hurricane weather rudely deposits the residue into the nice clean gutters.
Fall starts when we are already in full swing of wrapping up our summer activities. Schools and universities are beginning their classes. The grass is still in need of cutting. Some are preparing their home and gardens for the winter or wrapping up the food harvest and preparations. Our job list around the home grows immense.
The last thing that a homeowner wants to see in this season is a wet basement or water deluge washing away all the landscape. Perhaps the greatest tribute that could ever be lauded on the results of the gutter work that we do to prevent or resolve these issues are the testimonies that our clients leave behind. Many generous reviews can be found on our twitter reviews, Angie’s list or guild quality pages. Here is just one of those testimonies:
After years of mopping up water in the basement every time
there was a heavy rain, my basement has been dry ever since
the Brothers worked their magic, and I couldn’t be more grateful.
