The Truth About Gutter Maintenance

gutter maintenance

When the leaves begin to fall, it’s gutter-cleaning and gutter maintenance time.

Those leaves that looked so pretty on the trees a few weeks ago are now a hazard to your roof and gutters.

Leaves and debris fall on your roof. They will end up in your gutters where they get saturated in rain and snow, becoming HEAVY. This extra weight can cause gutters to pull away from the supportive fascia board.

The leaves and debris can also clog the gutters.

If left uncleared, water will run over the front and back of the gutters causing rotting and potential foundation issues. As temperatures drop, excess water and snow can freeze in the clogged gutters and ice damming can occur. This dangerous condition can cause moisture to leak into the soffits and you can end up with those dreaded leaks inside your house.

Don’t let it get that far!
