Ice, heavy snow, and winter storms wreak havoc on your gutters. Ice blockages in the gutter can create standing water, which can freeze your gutters and cause them to warp, and break away from the structure.  If enough water backs up, this may cause overflow, spilling freezing water which can damage your house. Here are a few tips to help you clear your gutters in the midst of winter.

  • Plan ahead by making certain your gutters are clear at the start of winter. A thorough cleaning makes ice dams after a freeze or a storm a much less likely scenario. Hire a professional service to clean for you. Keltom Gutter Services have trained technicians who will clear any ice dams that have formed on your roofline. These can cause thousands of dollars worth of damage to the interior of your home and should be cleared immediately. The cost of a cleaning service is much less expensive than a hospital visit, and infinitely less expensive than your life.
  • Keltom Gutter Services will remove ice that has already formed in your gutters and blocking your downspout which are already under a massive amount of weight stress. Our technicians are trained to remove any  ice without damaging the gutters.
  • Ask Keltom Gutter Services to perform a “roof sweep” which will ensure  that debris is removed from the rood that can contribute to ice dams.
  • Invest in insulation for your attic. This will cut down on heat loss through your roof and, as a result, reduce energy costs and ice dams.  Give Keltom Gutter Services a call at 973-852-7100 or visit our website for more info and special offers.
