With homeowners cleaning out their gutters they are noticing all sorts of issues. But, why is it so important that you clean out your gutters after all the leaves come down? Let us explain!
1. Keep Out Pests: Leaves and debris that build up in your gutters creates for a dream spot for a little critter.
2. Roofing Damage: When leaves build up it makes it extremely difficult for water to properly flow through the gutters and down the downspouts. This creates a issues with water flooding over and once it starts to get freezing ice dams can build up. This is one of the most important reasons for you to make sure that your gutters are cleaned out!
3. Landscaping Issues: With water overflowing off your gutters, your plans and landscaping below can get seriously damaged and can be ruined.
4. Cracks in The Foundation: Water that overflows off your gutters can also do some damage to your homes foundation. It can end up freezing on and around your foundation leading to cracks.
The morale of the story is that cleaning out your gutters is extremely important. Just as important is that your gutters are working and functioning properly.
