Your gutters play an important role in protecting your home from water damage. Without regular maintenance or a reliable gutter protection system, however, your gutters run the risk of clogging, which puts your roofing, siding, landscape and even your home’s foundation in danger.
Gutters can become clogged by twigs, leaves and other debris. Not only can this lead to water spilling over your gutters and saturating your home and landscape, these clogs can attract all manner of unsavory things such as mold, mildew and pests. Adding a gutter protection system prevents clogging, ensuring that rainwater flows smoothly through your system.
Most gutter protection systems eliminate the need for gutter maintenance, therefore allowing the homeowner to save valuable time and money. This also allows the homeowner to avoid the safety hazard of climbing onto the roof to clean the gutters.
Without gutter protection, it’s only a matter of time before your gutters develop a clog. When this happens, standing water can weigh down the gutters, causing them to sag or even pull away from your roof line, which is a safety hazard. In addition, rainwater can spill over the gutters, drenching your landscape and seeping into your home’s foundation, which can undermine your home’s structural integrity.
A gutter protection system that seamlessly blends in with the roof gives your home a sleek, cohesive appearance that can boost curb appeal. Professionals such as residential and commercial roof installation company ABM Services and Renovations can make that possible for your home.
