Gutters… the unsung heros of our homes! Did you know that a 1,600 square foot roof, for every 1 inch of rain, approximately 1,000 gallons of water run off your roof? That much water could easily penetrate your home or damage foundations but gutters and leaders gather and channel it away from your home.
Here is the bad news – just a handful of debris can prevent your gutters from working properly!
Without gutters, water would run off the lower edge of the root and run down onto the exterior walls of your property. This could result in water marks and severe damage to your siding and window frames.
Gutters that have not been cleaned frequently hold debris and standing water that can sometimes weigh up to several hundred pounds. This weight can damage the gutter’s angle which can lead to even more weight and standing water that can back up into the home or flow into the foundations. The truth is that it’s easy to forget about gutter cleaning because the problems in your gutter system are mostly hidden from you. But keeping up with gutter cleaning helps prevent expensive and major home repairs.
