Your gutters play a key role in protecting your home’s foundation from excessive water exposure. For them to continue doing their job, it’s important for you to ensure that they’re well-maintained.
JBC Contracting, the leading expert in gutters, discusses why doing so is essential.
It Extends Their Lifespan
Leaves, twigs, and other debris that accumulate in your gutter system can clog and damage it, shortening its service life. Clogging can also cause your gutters to sag, detach from the fascia board, and eventually collapse, leading to costly repairs. Cleaning your gutters, however, prevents these from happening, ensuring lasting performance.
It Prevents Water Damage
Unmaintained gutters can cause water to overflow and cause water damage to your roofing system and siding, ultimately deteriorating them. It can even leak inside your home, compromising your prized possessions. By making sure that your gutters are free of debris, however, you can prevent unsightly stains and streaks on your walls and ceilings. Doing so will also help prolong your roof’s service life and ensure a reduced need for maintenance.
It Safeguards Your Health
Stagnant water in a clogged gutter system can lead to insect infestation that can put your health at risk. Meanwhile, leaks inside your home can cause mold and mildew growth, which can also endanger your health. By making sure that your gutters remain in top shape, you can prevent these things from happening and keep your household’s health safe.
