When gutters are clogged, they are holding 8.4 pounds of water per linear foot. This can cause gutters to break or fall off. When they are full of leaves and debris gutters become heavy, causing them to pull away from the house, leading to fascia and soffit rot. As water overflows, it leaks behind the gutter and can make its way into your home. Gutters play a key role in the protection of your home. They are the main part of the rainwater drainage system that helps prevent:
- Foundation Damage
- Rotten Wood
- Landscape Destruction
- Termite, Mosquito and Cockroach Infestations
- Mold Growth
Any of these problems can be expensive and time consuming to fix. Regular maintenance is critical to keep your gutters clear and free flowing. 97.3% of ladder-related injuries occur in non-occupational settings such as homes and farms.
