Icicles on the side of your home may look pretty, but they really can cause significant water damage when things begin to thaw out. The main culprits of what are commonly referred to as “ice dams” on the edges of your house are clogged gutters. Fall is the perfect time to remove all of the leaves and debris from your gutters and downspouts. This ensures that water can freely flow rather than being trapped and freezing up during the winter months. This one thing can help save thousands of dollars in repairs down the road.
