Your gutters play the vital role of diverting water away from your home and landscape, preventing moisture damage. Therefore, maintaining your gutters should be one of your top priorities.

In this post, Gutter Helmet® of Minnesota, one of the country’s leading providers of gutter protection products, shares five reasons why you should maintain your home’s gutter systems regularly.

Removing Asphalt Granules 

As your asphalt roof ages, it will slowly shed its asphalt granules. These granules can gradually accumulate in your gutters, creating a clog that can slow or stop the flow of water into your downspouts. To prevent this, make sure to clean your gutters regularly or install a gutter guard.


If you live in an older home, the gutters may also be old and in need of replacement. Old, worn down gutters can encourage mold growth that can spread throughout your roof. With that in mind, make sure to have your gutters inspected regularly and have them repaired or replaced as needed.


Debris such as leaves and twigs can fall into your gutters and block the downspout. This can cause rainwater to overflow from your gutters, saturating your siding and drenching your home’s foundation, which can lead to a host of serious and costly problems. Regular gutter cleaning, or better, a reliable gutter protection system, are the best ways to head off such issues.
