It’s true that people are often well aware of the consequences of a leaky roof or a broken window, but what about a clogged gutter? Truthfully, a clogged gutter has the potential to be worse than either of the aforementioned issues just due to the fact that it can be much harder to spot.
You can almost think of gutters as your home’s immune system. Its primary function is to remove water from the roof and away from the home. In doing this it protects numerous parts of your home, such as the roof (naturally), doors, the foundation and your siding. A clogged gutter can also leak into your interior walls, rot your fascia, and damage soffit. A clogged gutter system with standing water is also a haven for mosquitoes, earwigs, ants, and other pests.
Now that you’re aware of the importance gutters have in your home you should also realize how important it is to protect them so that they can do their job. This is why we offer the installation of gutter guards, as well as entire roof drainage systems.
