What should I do if my gutters are frozen?
A lot of people have frozen gutters in Manchester NH. This won’t be too big of an issue come spring and certainly not in the summer, but the cold months of January and February can definitely freeze your gutters.
Besides, the last thing you want to be doing on a four degree day is fixing gutters in Manchester NH, or Hudson NH, or anywhere for that matter. Preventing frozen gutters and other damage begins now, in the spring months.
Why do gutters freeze?
Gutters don’t freeze just because of the cold alone. If the flow of water is impeded by debris, or metal roofing allows blocks of ice to fall into the gutter, it could be a catalyst for frozen gutters.
You will always want to make sure you get professionally done gutters to prevent this from happening. MJ Seamless Gutters services Derry NH, Hudson NH, Londonderry, and Manchester.
How do I know if my gutters are frozen?
It can be hard to tell, since on cold days they may not freeze and on mild days below 32 they can still freeze. If you have suspicion of frozen gutters, check to see if they are draining properly.
*Just because gutters in Manchester are draining some water doesn’t mean they are draining all of it. The ice is often unseen, and a trickle you see down the spout might be the result of ice sweating.

The importance of springtime gutters in Derry and Manchester NH
The month of March is said to come “in like a lion and out like a lamb” to kick off the spring. Just before spring is the best time of year to get gutters in NH. If you want to drain precipitation from metal roofing in New Hampshire, we suggest the installation of our seamless gutters today.
Last spring we saw quite a bit of precipitation around the state. Most of the cities around the state averaged about four inches of precipitation in the month of April alone. People with gutters in Derry NH and people with gutters in Manchester NH saw some of the most use.
In the month of May, gutters in NH saw identical numbers of precipitation. Once again, Derry and Manchester NH gutters had to deal with some of the heaviest amounts.
The month of March, the Nashua/Manchester/Derry area saw about four and a half inches of precipitation through their gutters!
Keep in mind that if your gutters and metal roofing in NH is not up to par, these heavy rainfalls can accumulate and pool on flat surfaces. This can cause damage such as rot and even collapse. If there is blockage and accumulation in your gutters, they can fill to the brim with heavy water and ice. Although gutters are designed to withstand the weight of water and ice, if they are left to bear the weight for a long period of time they may begin to sag.
Check your gutters in the spring!
New gutters in NH are something you should always consider in the spring. Gutters in NH see a wear and tear during the winter months and can be liabilities to your home if not addressed. Always check to make sure that your gutters are not damaged, worn, or even detached from their mount.
If you are interested in repairing or installing gutters in NH, feel free to contact M&J Seamless Gutters at 603-595-2900. We install gutters in Derry NH, Manchester NH, and the surrounding area!
Everyone should check their gutters for blockage in the spring, regardless of where you live.
Gutters in NH see four very unique seasons of the year that require four very different treatments. Spring cleaning of gutters in NH is much different than winter maintenance.
What is the purpose of cleaning out gutters in the spring?
There are many different reasons to take care of your drainage system in the spring. There are often very stubborn leaf blockages that prevent the drainage of gutters in NH. In the springtime, especially if you have metal roofing in New Hampshire, fallen debris can be problematic. Buds, needles, and other blossoms you see in your yard can collect in your gutters before they reach the ground.
Cleaning gutters in Derry NH can be different than cleaning gutters in Manchester NH. If you live in a more urban area, you may see different amounts of debris. You might also see different types of debris clogging gutters in Manchester NH than around Derry or Hudson.
Gutters Manchester NH
If you have metal roofing with gutters in NH, be sure to clear debris safely and thoroughly off of the roof. Water pockets that form due to clogging can cause water damage to your gutters and home. If you live clear of trees, like many of our clients that have gutters in Manchester, you are still subject to ice and other blockage. Since the leaf blockage isn’t as immediate, you may not feel obligated to check gutters in Manchester NH as much as you might in the rural areas of Hudson or Derry. Build-up can accumulate over time if your gutters are neglected, and lead to costly damages.
Debris and other blockage
It is always a good idea to check your gutters a few times a year. The transition from winter to spring is one of the best times of the year to check your gutters in NH for cracks or leaks caused by ice. If shingles have become detached from your roof and slide into your gutter, they can snare other objects and create further dam of blockage.
Remember to always check your gutters in NH during the spring.
Winterizing your roof and gutters can be very daunting if you’re busy like most New Hampshire residents. Neglecting to take care of your gutters can be costly for Derry, Hudson, and especially residents of the urban Manchester area, if precautions aren’t taken.
We don’t want our neighbors to have problematic gutters around Manchester NH and the surrounding area, so we have a few tips for winter gutter maintenance.
Gutter maintenance starts from the roof down. If you are one of the many residents that have metal roofing in New Hampshire you may want to look out for loose or missing shingles. We install metal roofing in New Hampshire and often see people with roofs that are not up to standard. One of the major causes of drainage problems around Manchester NH is shingles and debris clogging the gutters.
Tears and holes
If you don’t have metal roofing in New Hampshire you could be susceptible to small holes and other tears. Many problems with gutters in Manchester NH have to do with the weather we see here in the northeast. Harsh winters can damage the flashing to roofs. The occasional hailstorms can cause dormant problems that harm gutters in the long run. We offer metal roofing installation and metal roofing repair in New Hampshire. Check to make sure your roofing and gutters are up to par before the first snowfall!
Ice is problematic for gutters in Manchester NH. Ice dams can form around your roof and gutters, causing clogging and other damage to gutters. Before the winter season sets in, make sure you clean leaves and other debris out of your gutters in Manchester NH. Clearing your gutters from the debris in the fall can prevent you from replacing your gutters in the middle of winter.
It may seem like an annoying chore to go out and clean your gutters, but remember, gutters aren’t appreciated until it’s too late.
We also offer repair service for gutters around Manchester NH if you would like to ensure your home is protected this winter. We also offer emergency gutter repair services around New Hampshire. Feel free to call 603-595-2900 for more details.
Depending on who you ask, people will say that roofing is best done in the spring, or summer, or fall when the weather is mild here in New Hampshire. The truth about New Hampshire is that the weather changes year round and you will need a roof over your head for all 365 days of it. Homeowners may not be sure that they need a roof until it is too late.
The best time to get new roofing is before you need it.
We offer metal roofing in New Hampshire in a wide variety of colors and styles, with 25-50 year guarantees and a roofing installation warrantee. If you are unsure about whether or not you need a new roof, check for the following symptoms.
Leaking – A leaking roof is one of the most obvious and telling features of a roof that needs tending to. Our metal roofs ensure that your home is shielded from the elements year round, keeping water out. Leaks can also be a sign of malfunctioning gutters. We offer roofing repairs, siding repairs, and specialize in gutter repair services.
Sagging – If a portion of your roof seems to be sagging under the weight of snow or other debris, we offer a 24-hour emergency repair service. Feel free to call us now at 603-595-2900 for emergency roofing and gutter repair. Unsteady roofing can be extremely dangerous to your home and family. Roofing on flat surfaces is especially susceptible to accumulation.
Erosion – If roofing has missing shingles, algae growth, damaged flashing, missing granules, or is showing rot, it might be time to consider your options. The metal roofs we install are of very durable material that can withstand the extreme weather we experience here in New Hampshire.

Our GutterShell technology can save New Hampshire residents time and money!
We tailor gutter shells to improve the roofing of homes in Derry, Londonderry, Hudson, and the greater Manchester area in New Hampshire.
What is GutterShell?
GutterShell is one of our gutter protection services that keep leaves, pine needles, and other types of debris out of your gutter. New Hampshire residents will be happy to hear that our GutterShell services prevent ice accumulation in gutters as well.
GutterShell assures that your gutters are maintenance free!
There are many online gimmicks of “gutter cleaning robots” or other methods of self-cleaning gutters—but why the need to clean them in the first place? GutterShell is the responsible solution to preventing clogged gutters during all four seasons of the year. Unprotected gutters can leak or even sag dangerously from your roof. We offer emergency gutter repair services, but understand that the emergencies could easily be prevented in the first place.
Water tension attracts the water molecules to the surface of the shell. The water will then sieve into the gutter and be streamed away from your home, while other types of debris are physically discouraged from accumulating. By design, the gutter’s creative geometry will prevent unwanted debris on your roof.
Trickle Down Benefits of Gutter Protection
We pride ourselves on setting the industry standard here in New Hampshire. Proper gutter shells levee water and melting snow away from your house because they will not be clogged by ice. This can have trickle-down benefits on the health of your roof. Gutters may seem like a small detail to a house, but if they aren’t utilized properly your roofing could leak or even collapse. You also won’t have to spend time up on a ladder clearing or repairing your gutter.
Gutter shells will save you from the cost of cleaning, or even replacing damaged gutters. The longevity of a gutter shell is a worthy investment in itself for your home and roofing. The unique angles of the shell prevent birds, squirrels, and other animals from living in, or otherwise damaging your gutter. Unlike normal gutters, you won’t have to pay for repairs. The only thing in your gutter is the water. Our one time installation is a long term solution.

M&J Gutters- New Hampshire Metal Roofing
The Upsides of Metal Roofing in New Hampshire
We service Derry, Londonderry, Hudson, Manchester, and the greater New Hampshire areas with our metal roofing services. For over fifteen years our metal roofing expertise has left our clients satisfied. We offer a wide variety of metal colors and styles. Our services come with a warrantee and guaranteed lifespan of 25-50 years.
Why a Metal Roof?
Metal roofing can protect your home, the environment, and save you money!
Metal roofs protect homes and homeowners from extreme weather. They are a durable answer in New Hampshire for all four seasons. Millions of homeowners spend unnecessary time and money repairing their roofs each year. A metal roof is a onetime solution that will last for our guaranteed lifespan of 25-50 years. Metal roofs are resistant to fire and designed to withstand hard winds. The materials are often lightweight but pound for pound one of the most resilient solutions to protect your home—which is why most schools and government buildings use them in confidence.
Did we mention that metal roofs are cheap?
The light and recycled metal materials are often cheaper than many of the alternatives.
Aside from saving money during installation, the investment pays for itself in the long run. The Cool Metal Roofing Coalition has reported that installation of reflective metal roofing can save homes up to nearly 40% in cooling energy costs.
Dark asphalt roofs are susceptible to absorbing sunlight and trapping heat within your home. Metal roofs will often deflect solar heat and light elsewhere so that you can pay significantly less to keep your house cool in the summer.
Metal roofs are environmentally friendly!
One-time metal roofs may save you money, but they also help save the environment. A considerable portion of many metal roofs are forged from recycled material, reducing the footprint it makes on the environment. The metal materials from your roof can also be recycled back into the usage of new roofing at the end of its long lifespan.

M&J Seamless Gutters Offers Installation of Gutters to Homes in Derry, Londonderry, Hudson, and the Manchester New Hampshire Areas
Many homeowners feel that gutters are an unnecessary and expensive addition to the roof of your home. A damaged or un-kept gutter can be just as detrimental to your home as having no gutter at all. Our manufacturer-trained and certified roofing experts assure that your gutter will meet both the function and fashion standards that your home deserves.
The purpose of gutters is to levee precipitation (mainly rain water) out and away from your roof and home. If your home doesn’t have a gutter, or just doesn’t have a functional gutter, many problems can arise.
However, the upsides of having a customized gutter installed in your home can be a stylish addition that saves you money!
Style – Gutters are more than just a spill tray for your roof! More and more homeowners are enhancing the appearance of their home with stylish and eye- grabbing gutters. We offer aesthetically pleasing gutters that match the color and shape of your home without compromising on durability, longevity, or function.
Customized – We assemble specially tailored seamless gutters to fit around the perimeter of your roof. The amount of assembly will vary based on the length around the perimeter of a home, but we fit gutters seamlessly to homes of any shapes or sizes. We ensure that your gutters are equipped to deal with debris, pests, and of course, water on your roof. Regardless of the size, gutters are always worth the investment.
Money – Many people wonder why they should pay to have gutters installed. If your home lacks functional gutter services, the siding to your house is exposed to harsh water erosion from constant streaming. The foundation of your home can also be damaged (or even flooded) if heavy pooling occurs in vulnerable areas. The cheap investment of a gutter can help you avoid much costlier damage to your home in the long run.
