Ice Dams are one of the many difficulties of life in Minnesota during the winter. And we at Tollefson Bros. Exteriors, Inc. serving towns like Eden Prairie, have made a commitment to being the go-to gutter cleaning company in the state. Gutter cleaning is important to ensuring that ice dams do not form when the weather turns cold and the snow and ice begin to fall.
Prevent Ice Dams This Winter
Whether you like the snowy winters, blustery springs, heavy summer rain, or changing leaves of autumn, you can’t deny that Minnesota weather can be extreme. One potential result of this extreme weather is that the exterior of our homes take a beating each year. In each of the seasons, your gutters can and will get clogged. The problems that can arise as a result of clogged gutters may not strike a new homeowner as terribly serious, but if you have owned a home for a while, you know that clogged gutters are problematic.
When your gutters get clogged with snow and ice, a dam forms from the snow and/or ice, which forces moisture under the shingles of your roof. When that frozen precipitation comes in contact with the warm air of your house’s interior, you’re likely to have a leak in your house. If you are lucky, you will actually see the evidence of those leaks early. If you are not so lucky, that water will do damage without your knowledge, especially if it enters an attic or another part of your house that’s harder to access. When you work with our team, though, you can avoid those problems.
Gutter Cleaning, Eden Prairie, MN
Tollefson Bros. Exteriors Inc. can eliminate the risk of snow and ice building up in your gutters. Snow and ice are part of life in a cold weather state. Not everyone knows that the other seasons can be equally hard on your house. In the fall, Eden Prairie’s trees lose their leaves and drop their needles just like they do in other parts of the country. That debris builds up in gutters and can cause clogs without your even thinking about it. And then when the snow starts falling, it is impossible for your gutters to function normally without the help of a thorough gutter cleaning.
Windy and rainy weather in the warmer months can lead to the formation of ice dams in the colder months. Our team can help you avoid the problems that come with clogged gutters all year round. We work hard to make sure that your gutters are clear of the debris that can exacerbate the problems that go along with ice dams. And we can repair the damage that has been done if you were not able to catch it before it occurred. Give us a call at 952-881-2218 for an estimate. We will be happy to set up a time to look at your house and get your gutters ready for the coming winter.
