Gutter systems are your first line of defense from damaging moisture, channeling water away from your home’s surface and foundation. A clogged, sagging gutter system can cause immeasurable damage if left unaddressed.
There are several reasons it is important to maintain your gutter system. First, debris can build up in gutters and downspouts, causing poor drainage when rain falls. When this happens gutters can become so heavy they literally pull the support boards from your home which is a costly repair. Second, debris in gutters can cause overflow of water which can contribute to mold and rot or dangerous ice cycles that can break and cause serious harm.
