Rot can affect any wooden part of your home, including your roofing system, deck, siding, windows and fascia. Ignoring this problem will backfire as you’ll be faced with more extensive damage and costly repairs. Fortunately, installing gutter guards greatly reduces the risk of rot.

Preventing Wood Rot Through Expert Gutter Guard Installation

Wood Rot

Rotten wood is a result of fungus that begins to multiply and feed on the wood whenever there is moisture and the right temperatures are reached. This weakens the structural integrity of wooden structures within your home.

Take your roofing system, for example. If your gutters overflow, your roof will become drenched and the wooden components will be vulnerable to rot. Gutter clogs cause water to flow over the sides of the gutters. This damages not just the wood components of your roof, but also the fascia board and siding.
