What happens if I don’t clean my Gutters?
WHY DO I NEED TO CLEAN MY GUTTERS?
All homes need to be maintained periodically in order to keep everything functioning properly and in tip top shape—and that includes making sure that you clean and flush your gutter system two to four times a year!
When gutters are full of leaves and debris, they become heavy and get pulled off pitch. This can result in damage to the fascia and soffit areas—preventing proper drainage. Then, the next time it rains, water overflows, pouring over the gutter and leaking into your foundation. Or, if it doesn’t take that route, the water will leak and run behind the gutter, rotting the fascia board and possibly traveling into your home.
Most homeowners get their gutters cleaned only when they notice a problem. Unfortunately, at that point, your home may have already suffered water damage. Gutters actually provide protection against the harmful effect that the water has on the foundation of your home.
Keep in mind that an empty gutter weighs just 20 pounds. But that same gutter can weigh up to 300 pounds when it’s clogged with debris! That’s why it’s critical to regularly clean and flush your gutters—and that’s where Gorilla Gutters comes in! Give Gorilla Gutters a call!
