3 Gutters Essentials You Need to Know About

By April 5, 2016October 17th, 2023No Comments

The full functionality of your roofing system depends on the seamless orchestration of its various components. Chief among them are your gutters. They serve as the water drainage system for your roof, directing snowmelt and rainwater away from the foundation of your home.

ABC Seamless Alaska, the top experts at hanging gutters in Anchorage AK, and the surrounding areas, discusses three important things to know about your gutters and their role in protecting your home:

Gutters Prevent a Variety of Moisture Problems
Your gutters collect rainwater from your roof and channel it away from your home, which in turn prevents instances of moisture build up and its resulting problems. Many people don’t know this, but a mere two inches of rain can send up to 1,000 gallons of water down your drains and downspouts.

Imagine if all that water pooled on the roof or ran down the wall to the floor instead. Basement flooding, mold growth, pest infestation, and structural weakness will be imminent.

Gutters Need Maintenance
Like every other component in your home, your gutters need regular inspections and cleaning. Ideally, you should clean your gutters at least twice a year, but if there are lots of trees close to your home, then you may want to clean them more often. Leaves, twigs, and other debris can get into the gutters and impede the flow of water, so you’ll need to get them out as soon as possible.

Gutters Need Protection
In as much as they protect your home, your gutters also need a protective system of their own. For this, we install Gutter Helmet, America’s #1 choice in gutter protection for over 30 Years.
