An ounce of prevention includes the proper maintenance and cleaning of your home's gutters and downspouts. Rhyno's Landscaping has been providing services to satisfied customers in the Halifax area since 2004. Proper maintenance on the home's exterior can help prevent damage to your home's interior! Flooding through the foundation and walls caused by leaks in the roof due to backed-up gutters and downspouts are things everyone hopes to avoid. Gutters and downspouts should be cleaned and checked for signs of necessary repairs at least twice a year to ensure these disastrous things don't happen to you. Typically, the best times to do this are during the spring and fall cleanups. In Nova Scotia we should inspect for problems frequently as we live in an extremely rainy climate. Look at adding gutter and downspout care to your regular maintenance program.
