Preventing water damage to your roof can be as simple as maintaining and cleaning your gutters. Whether you do it yourself or hire someone, cleaning your gutters can make all the difference when it comes to roof longevity. As a homeowner, roof maintenance and proper drainage upon your roof should be a high priority. After all, your roof investment is an investment that takes care of you day in and out.
Fall and Spring are a great time to have your roof and gutters checked for any damage. With changing seasons, leaf foliage can wreak havoc on your roof. If your gutters are clogged from season to season, it can create mold, ice dams and creates a hospitable nest for rodents, and insects alike.
Gutters serve to guide and limit the flow of rainwater away from the important interiors of your home. Walls, baseboards and even attic spaces are all vulnerable to water damage when gutters become compromised.
Your exterior home foundation can also become a target of heavy and improperly directed rainwater. Plants and costly landscaping can take on too much water and become drowned out.
A particularly heavy gutter can cause significant damage by pulling away from your roof trim. Once they sag or begin to pull away you may end up with costly repairs.
Gutters are critical to the foundation of your house as well as protecting the roof itself. We know that you depend on your roof to protect your home and everything within it. Call us today to request your free on-site consultation and estimate!
