The Importance of Gutter Maintenance - Image 1

What is the purpose of our gutters? The purpose of our gutters is to direct water from the roof to the ground in an orderly manner. Without our gutter system, water would flow straight down our roof, creating water issues. 


During the fall and winter seasons, our gutters are easily vulnerable. They become clogged, wet, rusted, and frozen. Over time, it will deteriorate and cause more problems and cost more money. A durable gutter system is what every home needs. 


As homeowners, it's important to maintain our gutters, and not just to keep them clean from leaves and debris. Here are some other problems of clogged gutters:


  • Clogged, heavy gutters may rot wood riding and fascia, leading to low air quality and mold growth in your home
  • Clogged, old, and rusted gutters can easily dent, warp, and eventually break
  • Clogged gutters cause water to overflow, creating water issues for your home
  • Pests, birds, and small animals inhabit clogged gutters


In conclusion, maintaining your gutters provide long-term solutions for your home. Not only is the maintenance easier, but your home will not suffer from any serious issues.
