We know how it goes – you work hard on putting your yard and home to sleep for the winter … but there’s always one more thing: the gutters. For each bunch of leaves you raked off your lawn, there’s a bunch sitting up in your gutter . If you go into winter with your gutters clogged, you are putting multiple parts of your home at risk, from the roof to the foundation.
In the next two blogs, we will explore the unpleasant results that become possible when you do not keep up these essential parts of your home.
- Clogged gutters put your entire roof at risk
- The role of gutters is to get water away from the house as quickly as possible, beginning with the roof. Clogged gutters keep the water from escaping, so it pools. And then it weakens and rots the wood of your roof. It also makes your gutters rust, which is just another expense.
- Clogged gutters are bad for your health
- If you have standing water on your roof in the summer, your roof and gutters can become breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Additionally, if water is rotting your roof, mold will eventually compromise the health of your indoor air.
