Here’s Why Regular Gutter Maintenance is Important

Gutter maintenance needs to be a part of every homeowner’s maintenance checklist because of the important role that gutters play. They are responsible for catching falling rain and directing the water to your downspouts. This prevents the rain from saturating the ground surrounding your home and causing other problems.

Why Maintaining Your Gutters Is Important

Keeping your gutters clean and clear of debris is important because they protect your home from serious water damage problems. For example, leaving gutters unattended allows debris to enter them and form gutter clogs. These clogs block water flow, causing rain to pool in your gutters. This can cause them to sag and leak. Even worse, once it rains, water will overflow from the gutters and damage siding and landscaping.

Water can also saturate the soil surrounding your foundation, putting pressure on the sides of your home and causing it to crack. Overflowing gutters can cause water to seep underneath your shingles and cause roof leaks. Similar problems can also occur if your gutters have any cracks, holes, or leaks.  A great solution is to install LeafGuard gutters.  As a gutter installation expert, we use LeafGuard to ensure smooth water flow from your roof to the ground at all times.
