Your gutters are an integral component of your roofing system. Their main role is to redirect water off of the roof and away from the rest of the building, protecting not only the roof but the walls, foundation, and even your landscaping. When you don't maintain your gutter system and allow them to clog up with debris, you can end up with a major headache and an empty checkbook. Here are just a few of the major problems that can occur when you ignore your gutters:
While cleaning your gutters is not an enjoyable task, it is definitely a necessity if you want to prevent damage to your home or business. There is also an option to install leaf and debris guards over your gutters that will greatly reduce the amount of gutter maintenance you need to do. The guards are designed to allow water to flow through but to block out the majority of leaves, sticks, and other debris. If you decide to go with this option, be sure to consult with a qualified roofing contractor to ensure the gutter guards are not only good quality but installed properly. Many people think they should hire a company that solely performs work on gutters, but in reality, it is best to work with a company that knows the ins and outs of the complete roofing system.
