3 Reasons Why Gutter Cleaning Is Important
1. Gutter Cleaning prevents basement and foundation damage.
When gutters are clogged, water can overflow and cause the ground around your home to become saturated with water. This moisture can cause damage to the foundation of your home. Clean and properly functioning gutters divert water away from your home, protecting the foundation from damage.
2. Prevents fascia board damage.
Fascia boards hold the gutters in place. When they are clogged, the water can overflow to the rear side and cause premature rotting of the wooden fascia boards. Rotting can attract insects or cause the board to fail, which may cause the gutter to pull away from the side of the house.
3. Freezing temperatures cause ice damming.
In the winter, water can freeze within the clogged gutter which can cause ice damming. Ice damming can create a weight load that can cause damage or rip them from the house completely. The water can also make its way under the shingles to cause significant damage to your roof.
