Gutter Maintenance Helps Prevent Water Damage

News & Information > Gutter Maintenance Helps Prevent Water Damage

Maintaining your home’s roof gutters is important to help minimize rain damage. This is especially true in autumn when the leaves are falling.

When operating correctly, a roof gutter will transport rainfall from your home to the lawn. However, leaf debris can clog gutters, obstruct proper water flow and potentially damage the gutter system. This is why proper maintenance is essential.

Here are some of the dangers of gutters that are not working properly:
  • Clogged gutters can cause damage to your roof and siding of your home
  • Disconnected gutters can lead to puddling water around the foundation of your home, which can lead to flooding and damage in your basement.
  • Hanging gutters can fall and injure people or cause damage to your home and vehicles.

Failing to maintain gutters can lead to expensive house repairs as well as potentially lowering the value of your home. Avoid these problems by properly maintaining your gutters. Here are some tips:
  • Regularly clean your gutter, especially in autumn when falling leaves lead to clogging.
  • Make sure the spikes are holding your gutter to the roof. Failing to do this can cause the gutter to disconnect.
  • Check for leaks and holes to prevent excess water from damaging your home.
