By May 4, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

Gutters are a vital part of your roof system because they help in preventing water damage. They are tasked with redirecting rainwater away from vulnerable parts of your home, like the foundation and the roof. However, protection against water damage isn’t the only role that your gutters play.

Fire Prevention

Fires are a danger to any home and among the places you don’t want it to start is on your roof. Dry leaves and debris can be lodged within your gutter and could lead to serious problems.

One overlooked function of your gutters is how it can prevent fires from starting. When debris gets clogged within your gutters, leaves can be fuel for fire. Preventing fires and water damage is possible if you keep debris and leaves out of the gutters through regular cleaning.
