A commonly neglected aspect of a Herndon roof is the gutter system. Winter is a good time to stop and consider whether your gutters are prepared to handle the snowfall and snow melt that is sure to come your way. Water, ice and snow can do significant damage to your home if your gutters are not properly designed and installed. Consequences of an insufficient gutter system include leaking into the home as well as structural and cosmetic damage that can be costly to repair. How can you know if your gutters are ready for the water that will come your way in 2011? With a properly working gutter system, the water will flow off the Herndon roof and be carried away by efficient gutters--a process that keeps the home protected from top to bottom.
