Letting your Gutters Get Out of Control

In this last installment of our series on roofing problems, we’ll talk about the risks of letting your gutters get out of control.

Gutters are there to direct rain away from your house and protect your windows, doors, siding, and foundations from water damage.

Moss, leaves, and dirt in your gutters can attract pests and mold and cause clogs which will, in turn, cause damage your roof.

Neglecting your gutters can cause more serious problems and cost you big money.

It’s not a glamorous job to clean gutters, but it’s an important job that needs to be done at least once or twice a year.

The Fix

Inspect your roof from solid ground at least twice a year and check your gutters performance.

Professional roofing companies have safe cleaning methods and tools for cleaning roofs and gutters. They’ll also clean the downspouts and ensure that there are no obstructions. They’ll get the job done quickly and safely.

Cleaning the gutters yourself can be risky and is better left to the professionals. Never attempt DIY gutter cleaning if your house has more than one level.

This concludes our series on roof problems. We hope you’ve found it helpful!
