Money Saving Winter Roofing Tips- Spot Out Faulty Gutters Yourself

A good roof is perhaps one of the most important investments a homeowner can make. Any good investment requires good maintenance. One of the most crucial factors in upholding a roofing system is the quality of the gutter maintenance. Neglecting your gutters can cause storm damage that will cost thousands of dollars to repair that could have been avoided with proper upkeep. But how does a person really know when their gutters need more immediate attention? How can a homeowner say it is time to call in the roofing contractor to work on the gutters or clean them? Here are few signs that tell when your gutter actually needs some attention:

  • Rusty and slumping gutter – Rust is obviously a sign of old age. If rust built up rather quickly, then you should speak to a roofing expert about preventive measures to address the moisture. A rusty gutter is prone to build-ups and clogging because of its texture. Slumping does not help either as it does not allow the water to flow according to how gutters were initially designed. Once you observe these things, replace the gutters to prevent more serious issues.

  • Loose gutter – A loose gutter is a potential hazard for your family. This needs to be addressed immediately before it can hurt anyone in the house. Needless to say a hanging gutter will not work properly because of its uneven position. This problem requires immediate fixing not only to put back the gutter in a working position, but to also save your family from falling gutters.

  • Exterior wall damage – Wall damage is a clear sign that water is not flowing properly through the gutter. As a result, some of the water leaks toward the exterior walls of the house, which causes paint to peel and some wooden materials to rot more quickly and easily. If you observe exterior wall damage, check the gutters for any clogs and holes. A clogged gutter will cause too much build up on one side and will eventually overflow through the gaps and holes causing leakage that can lead to serious damage around the nearby area.

  • Clogs – The problem with clogs is that not all of them are easy to clear. Clogging indicates that a significant amount of water maybe pooling somewhere, or maybe seeping into inside the house without you knowing it. It has to go somewhere eventually. Clogs are prevented by regularly checking for debris that could potentially flow with the water down the spout. Serious clogging might require cutting the gutters down just to get the obstruction out. Hence, if preventative measures are not taken to avoid serious clogging you could end up sitting on a huge bill down the lines. As they say, prevention is better than cure, so do not wait for clogs to build up, and check those gutters regularly for debris and smooth water flow.

A lot of gutter problems can be avoided by regular cleaning and inspection. Gutter problems cannot be ignored as they can lead to more serious damages all around the house. Keep these things in mind so you know when your gutters need attention. Taking the time to regularly check your gutters for damage sounds tedious and time-consuming but any damage that is detected early can save you thousands of dollars and prevent a lot of potential headaches.

A clogged gutter spout isn't fun to try and clear. The easiest way I have seen is you get a leave blower and put the nozzle down the hole. Of course, this doesn't work if there is a lot of water.

Decade-old murder may finally have closure

After 10 years, there may finally be justice for Chanel Petro-Nixon. Last Wednesday, Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson announced the main person of interest in the case, 29-year-old Veron Primus, was in custody on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent in connection with the murder of a real estate agent there and a kidnapping. Petro-Nixon was last seen ten years ago on Father's Day in 2006. She left her parents' home in Bedford-Stuyvesant to meet up with Primus to fill out an application at Applebee's. She was reported missing the next day. When questioned, Primus said that Petro-Nixon had stood him up the day before. Three days later, her body was found in a trash bag on Kingston Avenue in Crown Heights. “Ten years ago a promising young woman’s life was tragically taken, leaving her family and the community searching for answers,” said Thompson last week at a press event. “Her family never stopped searching for answers, the community never stopped searching for the truth, and these people up here never stopped fighting for justice.” Investigators never had any DNA evidence to tie Primus to the murder, and he was deported to St. Vincent in 2015 after completing a jail sentence for violating an order of protection. Primus is being held in St. Vincent, and Thompson warned that the extradition process will be lengthy and complex, but they are willing to go beyond Brooklyn's borders in order for Primus to face justice. Recently, two prosecutors from the District Attorney's office went to St. Vincent to talk to local authorities. As they have every year on the anniversary of her death, family and friends of Petro-Nixon gathered on Kingston Avenue where her body was found on Saturday, but this year's memorial had a different tone. “I don’t know how we came to this day, but today is great,” said Reverend Taharka Robinson. “We are one step closer to justice for Chanel and her family. Our children are priceless and this is one child our community had to fight for.” “What holds this community together is faith and family and friendship,” said journalist Errol Louis, who worked over the past decade to keep the case alive. “That’s all we really have.” Primus was initially arrested for kidnapping. In St. Vincent, he reconnected with an old school friend, Mewanah Hadaway, and the pair started dating. Primus allegedly told Hadaway about killing a girl while in the United States, and showed her an article about Petro-Nixon. The relationship turned violent, and Primus held Hadaway captive for over three months in a makeshift dungeon. She was found after she placed a note in Primus' great-aunt's insulin box, where her caretaker found it and in turn contacted the authorities. After being arrested, officers searched Primus' residence and found evidence tying him to the unsolved murder of Sharleen Greaves, a real estate agent in St. Vincent, including a key to her car. Although Primus is in custody, witnesses and evidence are needed in order to get an indictment and conviction in the case of Petro-Nixon. Thompson and Public Advocate Letitia James urged anyone with information to come forward. “We can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel after ten long years,” said mother Lucita Petro-Nixon. “Somebody knows something and it is time to come forward.”
