The Importance of Cleaning Your Gutters

You’ve been conducting regular cleaning maintenance for your home’s gutters, right? If you’re like most homeowners, gutters can easily be forgotten in the hustle and bustle of daily life. Yet, if regular gutter maintenance isn’t on the top of your to-do list, you can find yourself dealing with a few more problems than a clogged gutter. At All Weather Roofing, we have four fundamental reasons to consider setting up an appointment for cleaning and repair with us today!

Prevent Water Damage

When leaves and debris obstruct your gutters and downspouts, the rainwater that travels through it may not be able to drain correctly. As the water begins to overflow from gutters, it can cause massive water damage to your home’s exterior and even the interior. Scheduling regular gutter cleanings is one of the best things you can do as a homeowner to extend the life of your gutter and roof and preserve the value of your property.

Protect Your Roof

Clogged gutters stop rainwater in its tracks. When the water slowly begins to flood over, it can leave rotten or a leaky roof in its wake. Standing water can harmfully affect your roof, and when gutters begin to overflow from clogs, the edges of your roof start to submerge. If these clogs aren’t taken care of before winter sets in, they become damage-causing ice blocks. That’s when the expensive roof leaks begin. When your gutter is seamless and clear of blockages, you keep these costly repairs from happening in the future.

Keep Your Home Pest-Free

Gutters clogged with different backyard debris can make perfect homes for insects, rodents, and birds. The last thing you need is an infestation in your home! If you’ve left your gutter cleaning for an extended period, chances are you have some kind of pest infestation taking place, from spiders to termites; who knows what has decided to call your gutters home. Cleaning your gutters regularly will keep your home pest-free for years to come.

Save Money

Taking preventive measures now can help minimize the likelihood of having to repair or replace your roof later, saving you thousands of dollars in the long run. Damage caused by clogged gutters can equally affect the outside and inside of your home and can cost much more cash if the damage is extensive. Slow leaks can induce parts of your house to suffer from erosion from the inside, and that can lead to unexpected accidents.
