Gutter Maintenance: An Ounce of Prevention for Your Roof

With the seasons beginning to shift, it will soon be gutter cleaning time for Ohio residents. While this unpleasant chore is not something anybody looks forward to, if left unattended, those leaves that look pretty on the trees will quickly become a hazard to your roof and guttering, causing a variety of problems.

Gutters clogged with heavy, rain-soaked leaves and debris can pull away from the supportive fascia board. If left uncleared, blocked gutters will cause water to flow over the front and back of the gutters and down the side of your house to your foundation, which could potentially cause wood rot and foundation issues. As temperatures drop, excess water and snow can freeze in clogged gutters and promote ice damming.
