Prepare Your Gutters for The Winter

If you live in the chilly UK, you know our winters can be harsh and with winter fast approaching, homeowners need to prepare their homes for the season. One essential area to focus on is your home’s gutters, which can play a significant role in protecting your home from water damage. A properly functioning gutter system can prevent water from pooling on your roof and seeping into your home’s foundation. Following on from autumn, with leaves browning and falling, gutters can quickly become blocked with debris that can freeze during the winter months, causing easily avoidable issues. ADB Exterior Cleaning offers a range of residential cleaning services, including roof and gutter cleans, ensuring your home is safe and prepared for the colder months.

Cleaning Gutters

If you missed an autumn gutter clean, your gutters may already be in need of a deep clean. Before winter sets in, it’s essential to clean your gutters of debris such as leaves, sticks, and dirt that can block the water flow. Blocked gutters can lead to overflowing water, which can cause damage to your roof and foundation. ADB Exterior Cleaning offers a free gutter clean with all their roof cleaning services to ensure an optimal clean. This ensures water is free flowing to avoid blockages and damage.

Check for Damage

After cleaning the gutters, it’s a good time to inspect them for any damage or leaks. Gutters that are loose, rusted, or have holes can cause water to spill onto your wall or foundation instead of being channelled away. Water damage can be costly and unsightly to your home, so it’s important to fix any damage to your gutters before winter sets in.

Install Gutter Guards

Gutter guards are excellent devices to protect your gutters from debris while still allowing water to flow through. They come in various materials, from mesh to foam to brushes, and can be installed either by a professional or as a DIY project. Gutter guards can alleviate the need for frequent gutter cleaning, saving you time and preventing blockages in your gutters.


While you may be able to clean your gutters yourself, there is the issue of safety, especially in the colder months that can cause additional issues.
