As a homeowner, there are many steps you can take to keep your home’s exterior in good shape. Replacing old siding, trimming away vegetation, and routinely checking the shingles for damage are a few examples. Each of these tasks will help keep your home structurally sound, keeping out things like problem-causing water and pests. One of the easier home maintenance projects that might be overlooked is maintaining the gutter system.
