Gutter Protection: Getting Rid of Clogs Once and For All

By June 15, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

Gutters are an important feature of the roofing system. They are attached to the edge of the roof to catch rainwater. The water flows through the gutter and into the downspouts, away from the foundation. Like any part of your home, it can be susceptible to damage.

Importance of Gutter Maintenance

Gutters are prone to clogging. This happens when debris such as leaves or twigs build up in the gutters and downspouts. When debris piles up, water will not be able to flow down to the end of the spout. It could back up, spill, or leak—in any case causing damage to your home.

Regular gutter maintenance helps prevent costly house repairs down the line. It can help you prevent common home problems such as:

  • Water damage – A well-maintained gutter lets water flow away from the foundation of your home. It also prevents flooding in your basements.
  • Insects – By removing debris from gutters, you also remove the stagnant water building up in your roof. Stagnant water attracts many kinds of insects.
  • Damaged landscaping – Your front yard will not be damaged by flowing water from the roof.

Having a clog-free gutter ensures keeps your home protected from structural damage. You won’t have to worry about mold, mildew, wall or ceiling staining, and even nesting areas for insects or small animals. Keeping your gutters in top shape also boosts curb appeal of your home.
