How Important is Gutter Maintenance?
Most people don’t think about their gutters until something goes wrong. Truth is, most people don’t even think about them until that something becomes a major problem. Gutters serve a very important purpose, not only in the continued life and efficiency of your roof but by channeling water away from the foundation of your home, which in turn keeps your walls from crumbling away over time. When it comes to homeownership, that should be very important!
Keeping your gutters clean and free of debris shouldn’t be an afterthought. A regular maintenance schedule, in the fall after most of the leaves have fallen from trees and in the spring after winter storms have passed, can all but guarantee your gutters will last longer and continue to do the job they were created to do.
Some things to watch for are clogged or sagging gutters, leaks and holes, damage due to storms, and improperly pitched or sized gutters. These are things a professional will look for when doing a routine maintenance check. If you think your gutters may be in need of attention, call us for a FREE roof inspection today.
