Two-Part Blog: Risks of Not Investing in Gutter Protection

By July 3, 2017October 18th, 2023No Comments

Gutter protection is a feature that no home should be without. Since gutters are an all-important part of the roofing system, they deserve extra attention. As such it is imperative that every homeowner goes the extra mile to install reliable gutter protection products. In our first installment of this two-part blog, ABC Seamless will discuss the risks of not investing in gutter protection.

Debris Buildup

Debris often builds up with gutter systems since they are constantly exposed to leaves, twigs, pine needles, and other outdoor elements. And those can pile up quicker than you might think. What’s worse is that the buildup can cause your gutters to become a breeding ground for insects, rodents, and all sorts of creepy pests.

Gutter Clogging

All that debris buildup will eventually clog your gutters, rendering them useless. That’s why it’s important to adhere to a fixed cleaning and maintenance schedule. For homeowners who neither have the time or patience for gutter clearing chores, the best option would be to invest in quality gutter protection products. That way, you won’t have to worry about clogs and the subsequent problems they bring.

Water Damage

Always remember that water has to go somewhere. If your gutters suffer from clogging, all the collected water will find its way down your siding and cause substantial water damage. In fact, constant flooding can even soften your home’s foundation and lead to serious structural issues.

Gutter Degradation

Standing water can stain and hasten the lifespan of your gutters. In addition, the total heft of water flow can take a toll on your gutters, causing them to separate from your home’s structure. This seriously compromises their ability to direct water into your downspouts and can even cause the entire gutter to fall off.

Don’t put your gutters at risk. A little investment in gutter protection goes a long way. In the conclusion of this two-part blog, we will discuss the many features and benefits of Gutter Helmet®, the most reliable gutter cover in the country.
