A Homeowner’s Dilemma: Your Trees or Your Gutters?

By September 30, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

We all know that planting trees can help the environment and is also a great way to enhance your property’s curb appeal. They offer your home very durable protection against the sun and other elements. Furthermore, trees can help reduce soil erosion around your house and help keep your home’s foundation stable.

As wonderful as trees are, however, their leaves can be a real concern, especially during fall. That’s because dry leaves and small debris falling from your trees could end up clogging your gutters. And when your gutters, downspouts and drains clog, numerous problems could develop around your home, including:

  • Water puddling around your home.
  • Soil erosion that could damage your landscaping.
  • Soil erosion that could compromise your foundation’s stability.
  • Flooding in your basement.
  • Water damage to roofing, siding, exteriors walls, fascia, soffit, windows and/or doors.
  • Pest infestation in your gutters.

 To prevent leaves and other debris from clogging your gutter, the best solution is to invest in a gutter protection system.
