Why Regular Gutter Maintenance Is a MustOctober 23, 2017
Whether you have copper, steel, or aluminum gutters, you need to maintain your gutters regularly to prevent clogs from developing. Accumulated twigs, leaves, and other debris can clog your gutters, keeping them from effectively draining water away from your home. This can cause serious water damage to your roof, siding, foundation, and landscape.
In today’s post, Gutter Helmet® of Eastern NY explains the importance of regular gutter maintenance.
Why Your Home Needs Gutter Maintenance
Your gutters play a critical role in your home’s protection from the elements, as it is their job to drain precipitation safely away from your property. When your gutters fail, your home becomes extremely vulnerable to water damage.
Keeping your gutters in good shape, however, can be challenging. While removing leaves and other debris from your gutters may seem simple enough, it is actually a demanding job—and one that needs to be done frequently, especially in the fall. Not only do you need specific tools to ensure you do the job right, you also need to be well-versed on best practices for safety.
Fortunately, there’s a solution that doesn’t require you to lift a finger: investing in a gutter filter or gutter protection system like Gutter Helmet®.
