We often receive calls from homeowners, business owners and property managers inquiring as to whether we can install gutters during the winter months. The short answer is yes, with some caveats.
You don’t have to put off calling a gutter professional until springtime. Weather permitting, we install gutters during any season.
Common sense dictates whether or not it is the right time to start a gutter installation project. Heavy snow and / or ice on the ground and roof along with extremely cold temperatures are not the ideal situation for any gutter project. It is important to have proper water flow to prevent damage to a building and its surrounding landscaping. Removing gutters while snow is piled on the roof or ice is hanging from the soffits inhibits proper runoff and diversion of water. It is best to wait until a thaw before tackling a gutter replacement project.
What if a Storm Damaged My Gutters?
Improperly functioning gutter systems can cause substantial damage to a building’s structure, siding, soffits, and more. If you notice even the smallest damage after a storm, such as sagging gutters or separated joints, it is important to have a gutter professional conduct an inspection as soon as possible. Small issues can quickly turn to much larger ones with additional rainfall and snow. So, it is best to remedy the issue as soon as the weather permits – and that can be during the winter of Mother Nature cooperates.
